REACT PROJECT :

A new life for outdoor acrylic fibre waste


Objective :

The objective of the project is to develop a method for removing undesirable substances (fluorocarbons, melamine, acrylic resin or anti-mold agents) from acrylic tissue waste. The aim is to improve the recycling and durability of acrylic fibres while reducing environmental and health risks.


Expertises :

  • Remove substances whose presence could affect the quality of the recovery raw materials and prevent their recycling,
  • Safe use or disposal of the substances thus disposed of,
  • Reuse acrylic textiles as raw materials for other production cycles, alone or by combining them with virgin fibres,
  • Reduce by at least 30% the quantity of acrylic textiles landfilled and incinerated for the outdoor sector (awnings and furniture),
  • Produce recommendations [EC2] on the design and manufacture of materials for recyclability and standardization, applicable to other products and applications.
