Green light for Swedish textile recycling

Written by John Mowbray

textile recyclingVARGÖN, SWEDEN – A new pilot textile recycling facility in Sweden, which aims to turn used textiles into fibres good enough for spinning and re-use in clothing, has finally been given the go-ahead. It is hoped the plant can be scaled up to take textile waste from Scandinavian retailers such as H&M and IKEA for up-cycling into new clothes through the regeneration of cotton and viscose fabrics.
