BioFashionTech is an innovative start-up that makes use of a scalable biotech process to turn pre and post-consumer textile waste into valuable products that can be used for biocomposites and chemistry. Furthermore, the company separate polyester and dyes to create a closed-loop solution. The technology does not involve the use of any harmful chemicals and can process cotton, viscose, and poly/cotton blends. As a result, BioFashionTech brings 85% of textile waste that currently is incinerated or ends up in landfills to sustainable, circular biobased products. At the same time, a startup reduces the amount of fossil fuel used to make synthetic fibres, which account for 52% of the global fibre market.
