A DUAL MISSION

THE ISSUE : how to recover 100,000 tonnes of non-reusable textiles and footwear by turning them into new materials.
TWO STRATEGIC AREAS FOR PROJECTS SUPPORTED BY THE INNOVATION CHALLENGE:
- Preparation of materials derived from used textiles and footwear
– Sorting techniques, methods for characterising, separating and preparing materials
– Optimising reverse logistics and scaling up material deposits
- Incorporation of recycled materials from textile/footwear waste within products for other sectors (building, automobile, etc.)
– Creating recycled materials that can be used by several industries (e.g.: plastic pellets, flocking material)
– Creating products (non textile nor footwear)
TARGETED INNOVATIONS: TRL 4 TO 6
- Open to everyone (in France and Europe: consortiums, companies, individuals, associations, etc.)
