Circotex plans to build CO2 dyeing plant in Europe

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2023-05-02 11:50:53 – Netherlands

Circotex, a new sustainable dyeing and finishing company based in  Hoofddorp, The Netherlands and Borgstena Textile of Nela, Portugal, have partered up to develop a comprehensive waterless dying procedure for automobile textiles. 

The procedure will remove the usage of additional chemicals for dyeing, cut water use to zero, and lower the overall carbon footprint.

Circotex is using the CO2 dyeing method created by DyeCoo Textile Systems, also from The Netherlands, and is wrapping up experiments with other technologies for the scouring and reduction cleaning processes that also do away with the need for water.

Together with Circotex partner Yeh Group in Thailand, the two businesses have tested the CO2 dyeing method a lot over the past two years.  The standards used in the automotive industry have been employed to test newly formulated dyes and UV absorbers. 

In the vicinity of Amsterdam, Circotex currently intends to construct Europe's most environmentally friendly polyester textile coloring facility, first concentrating on the automotive and technical textile markets.

Erwin Schols and Reinier Mommaal, two seasoned entrepreneurs with extensive backgrounds in corporate finance and administration, formed Circotex. Reinier Mommaal has more than 12 years of experience working in the sustainable textile production industry.

The Participatiefonds Duurzame Economie Noord-Holland (PDENH), DOEN Participaties (DOEN), and Amsterdams Klimaat & Energiefonds (AKEF) have all committed to making investments in the new facility. Additionally, Kansen voor West and the European Regional Development Fund have given grants to Circotex.
