New Garment Waste Recycling Facility in Bangladesh

Spanish recycled cotton fiber producer, has opened a new facility in Bangladesh

Recover, a Spanish recycled cotton fiber producer, has opened a new facility in Bangladesh to enhance its manufacturing capacity and speed up its attempts to revolutionize the fashion industry of Bangladesh. According to industry experts, Bangladesh generates approximately 4 lac garment cutting waste each year, of which only 5% can be recycled at four mills. Because of its utility in producing high-end items, this garment waste has progressively gained a foothold in the fashion industry. 

Currently, only 5% of the international market comprises items manufactured from recycled yarn. However, H&M and Inditex, two global fashion leads, have established objectives to use 100 percent recycled or renewable fibers in readymade garments by 2025-30. The Spanish company adopted this step as a joint venture project with Bangladesh’s biggest garment exporter, the Beximco Group, as per the Bangladesh Textile Mills Association. According to a press release, the facility in Bangladesh is completely equipped with Recover’s patented machinery and RColorBlend installation. Moreover, Recover’s innovative technology delivers fiber blends with color while reducing the environmental effect.

The facility’s excellent position, adjacent to textile waste management and manufacturing, will help Recover achieve its scaling goals by putting it closer to supply and demand, lowering carbon emissions from vehicles. Asia is one of the world’s greatest producers of cotton waste, and Recover can provide an effective solution to this by setting foot in Bangladesh.
