Each year, Refashion organises the Innovation Challenge, a call for R&D projects open to any company wishing to develop recycling solutions for used, non-reusable CHF collected in France. The Innovation Challenge has a dual purpose:
- To find and grow innovative industrial and commercial solutions optimising the recycling of textiles and footwear;
- Accelerate the development of a more circular industry in synergy with other sectors where there is a demand for recycled materials (construction, automobile, etc.).
The challenge lies in converting 100,000 tonnes of used and non-reusable textiles into new materials (i.e. 250,000 tonnes collected, sorted, prepared as from 2020).
You will find all the details of the Innovation Challenge on the Accelerating Recycling page. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information!
