AEI Tèxtils has just released a promotional video to highlight some of the examples within the cluster on how different members have adapted their production and products to tackle the COVID-19 crisis.

The cluster wants to express the pride to count with a group of companies and organizations that have been able to tackle the circumstances in these difficult moments. They are taking action to respond to the health system needs.

This video features several of AEI Tèxtils’ members, both industrial companies and research centers, and their approach, challenges and opportunities they are addressing.

The cluster at large is highly involved in this crisis and has held several virtual meetings in order to share best practices, concerns and exchange of ideas on how to tackle particular effects of COVID-19 within manufacturing sites.

AEI Tèxtils keeps working for supporting its members. In the last weeks, the cluster has implemented several measures, such as: informing and advising on issues related to the manufacture of products for medical or health uses; promoting the interaction among our members to boost complementarities; working on the preparation of project proposals to support increasing the competitiveness of our members: and remaining active within our international network, through the European Economic Interest Grouping EU-TEXTILE2030 and CONTEXT. These enables being in contact with other organizations and experts at European level, to share experiences, contacts, knowledge, etc. that can help us respond to the needs of our members.

The release of the video is the first action of the new communication plan that is being implemented by the cluster to increase the visibility of its members.

AEI Tèxtils fosters the circular economy in the advanced textiles materials’ sector

AEI Tèxtils has started the TEX-r-HUB project (a hub for recycling textiles for technical use in Catalonia), co-funded by the Waste Agency of Catalonia within the framework of the Promotion of the Circular Economy program. The aim of the project is to develop a sectoral study to promote the circular economy in the advanced textile materials sector in Catalonia, connecting companies in the ecosystem to facilitate the circularity of the sector.

The project aims to generate a circularity boost for the sector, mainly composed of SMEs, as new opportunities will be seeded for them to contribute to the reduction of environmental impact. The existence of a sectoral hub focused on textile recycling allows companies to manage their surplus more efficiently, to share knowledge, etc.

The first sept will be the development of a database of companies and stakeholders involved in the recycling value chain of advanced textile materials, identifying their technical recycling capabilities and their existing challenges for scaleup and growth.

Then, the cluster will invite the stakeholders to a series of co-creation sessions in order to develop a long-term strategy and workplan to scale the network into a recycling hub. The result will be a technical and economic feasibility study of the solutions proposed by the hub in Catalonia.

AEI Tèxtils has previously implemented several projects related circular economy, co-funded by previous calls from the same program of the Catalan Waste Agency.

TEX-r-HUB is the next step in the green transition with a clear sectoral orientation in developing a tool for companies to facilitate recycling.
