The cluster will start 5 new projects on circular economy

13/01/2020

A major priority for AEI Tèxtils during last years has been the promotion of circular economy and sustainability within the textile sector, especially in technical textiles.

Thanks to the acquired experience during the last years and the trust of the companies members of the cluster, it has been possible to present, in 2019, five projects to the call to Foster Circular Economy from Generalitat de Catalunya.

All five projects have been approved and they will start on February 2020. AEI Tèxtils coordinates two of them, in collaboration with LEITAT Technological Center, to develop sectorial guides and communication activities aimed at the implementation of measures promoting circular economy:

  • SUSTEX – Fostering the hazardous chemical products’ substitution in the textile finishing industry.
  • CIRCULARTECH – Study to foster circular economy in the technical textiles’ sector.

Three members of the cluster lead the other of the projects: TechnitigerEtisilk and Hilaturas Arnau with the objective to analyze individual improvement actions on sustainability and circularity of their products and services. AEI Tèxtils will collaborate in diverse tasks within the 3 projects.
