eeden exists to protect the natural resources of our planet.
Every second, a truckload of used textiles is landfilled or incinerated. That’s 73 percent of all used textiles worldwide. Less than one percent of our old clothing is recycled into new clothing. This results in an annual resource loss of more than €100 billion and a huge environmental footprint. According to forecasts, production and the resulting ecological problems will double in the next 20 years. (Source: Ellen MacArthur Foundation) Clearly, it is time to act.
We need to go circular. To achieve resource efficiency, circular economy is the most important approach. For textile companies, this means: developing recyclable products. Collect old textiles. Offering second-hand products. Upcycling worn-out textiles. In other words, circularity as part of a holistic corporate strategy.About us
Green chemical upcycling
In our research laboratory in Münster, we are currently developing an economically and ecologically efficient process. We are extracting cellulose from cotton textiles for seamless incorporation into the production of lyocell or viscose. In this way, we not only reduce the ecological footprint of the industry, but also ensure that future regulations are met today.
