Transforming millions of tons of waste apparel to raw material for textile production

About 16 million tons of textiles get discarded every year, and only about 15% of that gets recycled. The vast majority goes into our landfills/oceans. Ambercycle is developing technology to convert waste polyester textiles into new fibers. These fibers are then used to make new clothing.
 
This technology is based on new chemistry, and deployed as modular shipping-container sized "boxes" that are co-located with existing waste streams. We are building our first box (3 tons/day) in Ahmedabad, India.
 
By 2030, all clothing will be made in part of a circular supply chain from sustainable sources.
