Renewcell applies new textile fiber preparation system using ANDRITZ ADuro green technology
- ANDRITZ technology contributes to circular fashion with key solutions for production of pulp made from 100% textile waste
- ANDRITZ textile fiber preparation system lays the foundation for a pioneering recycling process developed by Renewcell
ANDRITZ installed a complete textile fiber preparation system based on shredding and separation technology. Shredders of the ADuro product line form the technological centerpiece of the system and shred used textiles in only one step, enabling a throughput of up to 60,000 tons of textile waste per year. In the subsequent separation stages, impurities such as buttons and zippers are removed from the shredded textiles.
Since 2016, Renewcell and ANDRITZ have been working together on the development of Renewcell’s textile recycling process at its test plant in Kristinehamn, Sweden, and now also on their first commercial textile recycling plant in Sundsvall.
Renewcell was founded in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2012 and specializes in recycling textiles with the vision of making fashion circular. Its recycling technology transforms used cotton and other cellulose fibers into a new raw material called Circulose® pulp. The pulp is used to produce high-quality biodegradable viscose or lyocell textile fibers for the fashion industry.
ANDRITZ focuses on sustainable and state-of-the-art recycling solutions for pre- and post-consumer textile waste usage and collaborates with internationally renowned partners. ANDRITZ has always been a pioneer in providing industrially and economically viable solutions that bring the circular economy to the world of textile fibers.
