Circletex membership

We're a member of Circletex

Sioen is a proud member of Circletex, an association that researches systems to optimise textile recycling and to reuse textiles.

Circletex states its mission as follows : We want to examine with all players in the chain of industrial clothing, protective clothing and flat linen, whether a system can be set up whereby the collected end-of-life textiles from these streams can be recovered, repurposed or recycled.

In a circular economy numerous strategies are applied in order to continue to use materials and products in the economy in as high-quality a manner as possible. They are repaired, have a high secondhand value, are upgradeable, and can easily be taken apart and turned into new products. The selected materials are recycled or bio-based at conception and are recyclable or biodegradable at end-of-life.
