Bergamo
Summary: 
Filippo Servalli, Marketing and Sustainability Director of RadiciGroup said that, “GRS certification was yet another goal achieved by the Group – evidence of its customary transparency with the greatest clarity,” emphasising how measuring environmental impacts and continuously working to reduce them is always a top priority of the Group. He added that, “Indeed, these are the operative words guiding the RadiciGroup Comfort Fibres Business Area on a daily basis on its road to certifying its fibres obtained from recovered materials.” Later he said that, “Again, with the aim of saving natural resources, and water in particular, the Group offers solution-dyed polyester (and nylon) yarn. Solution dyeing requires less water and energy usage compared to conventional yarn or piece dying, because the colour is added ‘upstream’ during the extrusion stage and thus becomes incorporated into the polymer matrix.”

AlgiKnit wins EUR 100,000 for 'Seaweed Textile'

Related Keywords: AlgiKnit, clothing industry, fibers, polyester, seaweed textile, spun, T-shirt, Textile Industry, textile recycle marketplace, yarn

Amsterdam
Summary: 
The American start-up AlgiKnit makes fibers from kelp that can be spun into yarn. AlgiKnit offers a solution that could transform the highly polluting textile industry into a circular economy by using biomaterials. After having been used, this seaweed textile can serve as compost or animal feed. It also reduces the carbon footprint of the clothing industry, because no harmful fiber particles are lost during washing, such as is the case with polyester. The company is working on a prototype of a T-shirt and sneakers will be next.

Besides fabrics, import of manmade fibres (MMF) and MMF yarns have also sweeped since June 2017 when the goods and services tax (GST) was implemented. Import of polyester staple fibre (PSF) and viscose staple fibre (VSF) had increased by 5 per cent and 20 per cent respectively during the financial year 2017-18 including a similar increase in imports of other products in the polyester value chain.
