Accelerating Circularity, the nonprofit focused on scaling textile-to-textile recycling, has created a comprehensive directory of international recyclers to spur connections across the value chain.
The Accelerating Circularity Recycler List includes commercial technologies for chemical and mechanical recycling of polyester and cellulosics. The catalog details the different aspects of each recycler, such as location, feedstock fiber type, restrictions, etc.
The information can be organized and filtered by users in the Airtable platform to pinpoint specific capabilities.
The directory launches with 143 company listings in 27 countries, including the U.S. The directory will be regularly updated.
“Circularity is a team sport!” said Karla Magruder, founder and president of Accelerating Circularity. “We are a shareholder lead collaborative focused on scalability, viability, and transparency.”
The organization’s U.S. steering committee members include Target, Gap Inc., Lenzing, Eastman, Unifi, Milliken, VF Corp., Nike, Giotex and Gr3n.
