Sulzer Chemtech partners with H&M and Worn Again in developing technology for textile recycling – Sulzer Chemtech’s Division President elected Chairman of Worn Again
More and more fabrics end up in landfills, making textile waste one of society’s pressing environmental issues. Because of the complexity of garments’ production, chemical recycling techniques have only been applied to a minor share of end-of-use textiles and clothing so far. As the technology partner for UK-based Worn Again Technologies, a company majority-owned by Sulzer and H&M Group, Sulzer brings in its expertise with a new technology to recycle textiles, thus enabling circularity. The teams will now engineer a demonstration plant and further scale-up this novel closed-loop recycling process with a planned output of 1’000 tons per year.
