Each year, the fashion industry produces and sells between 80 and 150 billion garments globally. At the same time nearly 92 million tonnes of textile waste is created. 87% of textile waste is incinerated or ends up in landfills where it takes 200-plus years to degrade. As it decomposes, it leaches toxic chemicals and dyes into the groundwater and our soil. It is also responsible for 10% of global CO2 emissions each year. The production of textiles is expected to rise by 63% by 2030.
Every second a truck full of textile waste goes to landfill.
BioFashiontech’s mission is to give textile waste another chance at a useful life and lower the carbon footprint of the fashion industry. We process textile waste using our low energy technology and transform them into a new sustainable materials enabling the transition from a linear, petro-based economy to a circular one.
Hence we are solving two environmental problems with one solution.
