HULL - Safety clothing and footwear supplier ARCO has committed seed funding to support the development of a closed-loop, recycling solution for polyester workwear.

The funding will enable the Stuff4Life start-up to commission a chemical recycling demonstration plant in collaboration with Teesside University.

ARCO agreed to back the trial because nearly 90 per cent of the 33 million workwear garments supplied annually in the UK - many of them made from polyester - end up in landfill or being incinerated.
