Birla Cellulose Shows Recycled Fabrics & Apparels At PV Paris
Textile recycling innovator SaXcell showed fabric and apparel samples at the Birla Cellulose stall, which is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of manmade cellulosic fibre at PV Paris exhibition.
“This partnership underscores the successful partnership between SaXcell and Birla Cellulose in the production of recycled man-made cellulosic fibres,” a Birla Cellulose press release said.
SaXcell’s pioneering textile waste pulping technology, combined with Birla’s advanced wet spinning expertise, has resulted in the creation of high-quality sustainable “SaXcell” recycled fibres.
“These fibres address the circular textile needs of customers on a commercial scale,” the Aditya Birla Group company explained.
“Global collaboration is crucial to address today’s social and environmental challenges of the textile industry,” Süleyman Kocasert, CMO at SaXcell also said.
“We need to advance the change from a linear to a circular economy and we need to do it now. SaXcell’s and Birla’s combined innovation force and production power offers a great opportunity to create real impact,” he too added.
”Birla Cellulose is strongly committed to join forces with innovators for expanding circular fibre offerings in the textile and non-woven value chain,” Dr. Aspi Patel, CTO at Aditya Birla Group and Birla Cellulose stated.
“Such partnerships will play an increasingly important role in accelerating circularity in global textile value chain,” Dr Patel too observed.
SaXcell B.V. is an innovative technology development company that recycles used textiles into feedstock for making new and sustainable man-made cellulosic fibres.
Creating the new fibres requires less water, land and chemicals. A team of researchers from Saxion University of Applied Science in Enschede started with SaXcell B.V. in 2015.
After extensively testing and improving the technology, a pilot factory was successfully built in 2020. By 2024, SaXcell will further expand by building a small-scale production plant in Enschede.
Birla Cellulose is the pulp and fibre business of the Aditya Birla Group, is a leading sustainability-focused man-made cellulosic fibres (MMCF) producer.
Birla Cellulose operates 12 sites for pulp and fibre manufacturing that apply environmentally efficient closed-loop technologies including recycled materials and enhanced conservation of natural resources.
Birla Cellulose is among the top Hot Button Ranking MMCF producers and has been accorded a ‘dark green shirt’ by the Canopy Planet Society.
Its five global advanced research centres are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and pilot plants.
Birla Cellulose’s fibres are made from renewable wood and are produced using a closed-loop process with significantly lower carbon emissions and lower resource consumption.
Birla Cellulose collaborates actively with its upstream and downstream partners to create a bigger and broader positive impact on the sustainability of its value chain.
