OSLO, NORWAY - 8 March 2023 - Norwegian sustainable biochemicals organization Circa
Team AS (inventory image: CIRCA) and Danish engineering business Textile Modify are
working with each other to optimise textile recycling. 

Circa's bio-centered solvent CyreneTM has been properly tested by Textile Change
in the separation and decolourisation of waste textiles into cellulose and
polyester. With CyreneTM, Textile Improve is anticipating to reach a secure, small
carbon, considerably less electricity intensive method, while guaranteeing a superior generate that will
deal with growing current market demand for recycled textiles.

Ditte Højland, CEO and founder of Textile Modify said, "We chose CyreneTM as the
most efficient solvent, with the very best dissolution general performance, and the strongest
sustainability profile. Circa has delivered us with a non-fossil choice to
regular solvents, with improved environmental and basic safety properties. This

thousand tonnes for every annum. It will show that the firm has observed a
commercially competitive way to recycle fibre raw resources from squander textile
inputs, with no irreparably harming them, working with the least quantity of vitality, and
safer, renewable chemicals in the course of action. 

Circa is switching chemistry for excellent and has made a safer and sustainable
solvent that is an choice to harmful, petrochemical solvents this sort of as DMAc or
DMI, which is generally applied for this software. CyreneTM is produced from
renewable, non-foodstuff biomass and its carbon footprint is up to 80{5e37bb13eee9fcae577c356a6edbd948fa817adb745f8ff03ff00bd2962a045d} reduce than
