Recycling of Textile Fibres

A project started in cooperation with Green World Recycling Ltd., Humana People to People in Austria and the Technical University of Vienna to find viable ways to recycle the fibres from waste second hand clothes.


“Recycling of Textile Fibres”, is a joint project with Technische Universität Wien, Humana Austria and Green World Recycling Ltd. on testing various systems in order to develop a sustainable and commercially way to recycle textile fibres.

A number of shredding systems are being tested, some larger shredding tests have been carried out, and the project is researching on the use of the resulting microfibres.
