Blend Recycling Breakthrough

Blend Recycling Breakthrough

In November 2017, the Swedish cross-disciplinary research program Mistra Future Fashion announced a major breakthrough in recycling polyester/cotton fiber blends. The process, the result of six years of research, is called Blend Re:wind and generates three circular outgoing product streams. Cotton is turned into new high-quality viscose filaments and polyester into two pure new monomers. The outputs can then be re-spun into new threads.
