The  yarn is transferred from the waste cotton into fiber by the Tampere  University of Technology at VTT's laboratory, which is then fabricated  into yarn. The first plateau products - gloves and knitted fabrics are made by sweater company Agtuvi.

VTT  said that the recovery of fiber by soft and matte treatment and drape  good, smooth surface, between the "cotton and Viscose between". The  researcher claimed that the method was more "friendly" to the  environment than the process of decomposing Viscose using  carbondisulphide. In addition, they indicated the use of the pulp industry to remove polyester residues from the cotton material.

A  statement detailing the study: "According to the calculation of the  technology commercialization plan, the carbon footprint of regenerated  fibers produced using carbamate decomposition technology is stronger  than that of cotton and the same type of environmentally friendly  Viscose carbon footprint , About one-third of the fresh water of the water footprint is about 2% of cotton, Viscose is 10%.

The study became part of the TEKI program. In  the international launch of the "fashion recycling program  (ReloopingFashionInitiative)", it involves the pilot and modular locking  cycle ecosystem, will meet the circular economy, this ecosystem will  make the previously impossible to use the textile waste Produce new industrial applications.
