MISSION

Change the textile industry

The fashion and fiber production of today is causing massive-scale pollution – and the demand for fiber only seem to increase. At Textile Change our aim is to guide the textile industry into a future of responsible use of resources using our groundbreaking technology of recycling textile waste

Introducing a circular model for textiles

Rethinking
fiber flows

Today, a staggering 10% of global carbon emissions stem from the textile and fashion industry*. Yet less than 1% of the material used to produce clothing is recycled into new clothing**.

At Textile Change we have developed a technology that turns textile waste into raw material for fiber production. This enables a future where raw material – like cotton and polyester – no longer have to be produced and moved across the globe at the cost of climate and environment. Insted, we can transform the loads of locally present textile waste to make a recycled fiber that is just as good as new!

Our Technology

Molecular level innovation

The stand-out element of our technology is the treatment of fibers at molecular level. This enables us to separate textile blends as well as pure textiles without degrading fibers. In this way, used textiles can be transformed into new clothes.

Our method is highly energy efficient: The input is discarded textiles, the output is cellulose and polyester ready to be spun into new clothes.

We are constantly looking to refine our technology to further minimize energy consumption and broaden the scope of our enterprise.


story

Idealism turned into technology

Back in 2019, three engineers-to-be at the university of Aarhus, Denmark, began discussing possible ways to tackle the pollution of the textile and fashion industry. Soon they started experimenting in the lab with remarkable results, and in 2020 Textile Change was founded.

We are currently establshing a test plant. This plant is to be followed by the first commercial plant.

Our mission is the same now as in the very beginning: We are driven by a desire to change the way textiles are produced and recycled. A circular future is possible.
