At the end of a dismal 2020 came optimism, courtesy of a newly launched research facility to “stimulate innovation and economic growth in UK textile manufacturing”.

The Textiles Circularity Centre (TCC) was the focus of £5.4 million in funding last year and is just one piece of the government’s much broader jigsaw, which will see a total of five state-of-the-art facilities erected across the country in a bid to reduce waste, boost recycling and promote circularity in industries including textiles, chemicals, construction and electronics.

“These new research centres will play a vital part in creating a cleaner and more sustainable economy, and help us to better protect the environment for the next generation,” noted Environment Minister Rebecca Pow. “Creating a more circular economy for our waste and resources lies at the heart of this government’s transformative agenda for the environment, and we are committed to going further and faster to reduce, reuse and recycle more of our resources.”
