Saxcell turns the circular textile chain upside down
How can the textile industry become more sustainable? An issue that Gerrit Bouwhuis, researcher and technologist, has been pondering for years. Gerrit: “The environmental impact of the textile industry is considerable. More and more products are being developed, and that also means an increasing mound of discarded textiles.” Together with colleague Ger Brinks, he felt responsible for changing this. They started testing and developed the recyclable fiber ‘SaXcell’. What can they do with it? And what does this mean for the textile industry?
“We are doing all this to make the textile industry more circular, and I have faith in that.”
