MANCHESTER – An EU project which is researching innovative recycling processes which can generate new secondary raw materials from textile waste recently met in the North West of England. The EU Horizon 2020 RESYNTEX project brought together stakeholders from the region's textile industry to discuss how circular economy processes could "revolutionise the region." Manchester city council currently spends around £5 million per year of taxpayers' money disposing of unwanted textiles.
