The Refashion platform for connecting textiles and footwear recycling stakeholders
to sorting operators and preprocessors registered on the Refashion Recycling platform
in response to recyclers’ specifications, as part of the 2023 Material sorting & Preprocessing and Recycling Experiments.
As part of its new 2023-2028 accreditation, Refashion launches a campaign of material sorting & preprocessing and recycling experiments, to further develop post-consumer non-reusable textiles and/or footwear sorting, preprocessing and recycling solutions in answer to recycler’s specifications. These experiments will contribute prioritize the recycling channels to be industrialized in France and in Europe.
The scope of the 2023 Material sorting & Preprocessing and Recycling Experiments covers: material sorting & preprocessing in response to a recycler’s specifications, quality control, shipment of the material and the recycling test by the recycler.
Specifications are selected on the basis of their feasibility and market potential for non-reusable post-consumer textiles and footwear. They are available for consultation via a secure Dropbox only to sorting operators and preprocessors registered on the Refashion Recycle platform.
Refashion will finance the experiments based on budgeted costs in a quotation to be included in an experiment agreement. To be eligible, the costs must be detailed by by expenditure items (material preprocessing, packaging, logistics).
The general schedule for the experiments will include a phase of identification of proposed solutions and preparation of validated experiments (May-August 2023), followed by a phase of actual experimentation (August-end October 2023).
The deadline for applications is 16th of June 2023.
