“Sweden should become a world leader in sustainable textiles, and re:newcell is helping us achieve that goal” was the message from the Minister as she visited the re:newcell demonstration plant in Kristinehamn, Sweden. The Minister was given a guided tour of the one-of-a-kind facility designed to produce 7 000 tons of high quality biodegradable re:newcell pulp from textile waste annually.
The Swedish government has made the transition to a circular fashion system a priority. “If the fashion industry is to make the necessary change to sustainable production, we need new solutions. This will require cooperation between businesses, government and the academy” said the Minister.
