Circ aims to recycle textiles in a better way

The recycling process has always been a complex one. The difficult challenge in the handling of recycled textiles is that only one of the extracted materials is salvageable to use again. Fiber strength is also another significant issue to handle. 

Peter Majeranowski and Conor Hartman have found the solution to solve this problem of recycling. They founded an $8 million project 'Circ' that caters to technology to work in textile recycling. Circ has its roots in biofuels and it was originally named "Tyton BioScience" and was shepherded by a Polish scientist who was looking for a non-food crop to be used in biofuels.

They have found out methods to use to give PET bottles a longer life. Their timing is quite suitable for the industry's rising concerns about recycling options and increasing awareness of the environmental footprint. 

Their textiles will be going through a series of tests and will be introduced into the market later this year. It also uses chemical recycling which holds responsible chemistry. Circ's efforts and objectives have given clothing a circular loop but is still struggling like most of the brands with the microplastics problem. Many other brands share similar visions and they are practicing different recycling techniques such as H&M's Green Machine. It is a circular solution for the polyester fraction.

At last, they concluded that efforts are needed to be put in globally to deal with the fashion waste problem. They are welcoming innovative ideas to tackle the recycling problem in different textile categories.
