Humana and Cespa GR, SA have launched the SIMBITEX project, funded by the Agència de Residus de Catalunya. This project of industrial symbiosis works in the optimization of textile waste management within the framework of the call for the Promotion of the Circular Economy of Agència.
SIMBITEX intends to carry out an analysis of the textile flow destined to recycling, coming from the selective collection and subsequent preparation for the reuse developed by the Foundation. The objective is to demonstrate if it is possible to produce in a sustained way fiber textile and recycling processes for its promotion in the regional market from the fraction with recovered recycling potential.
