Nov 2, 2023

About Worn Again   Worn Again was born out of a vision to eliminate textile waste and create a world where resources are kept in a constant cycle.

Challenge: Thousands of tons of textiles still end up in landfills and combustion plants worldwide every year. Currently, less than 1% of used textiles are recycled, but demand is increasing.

Solution Our cutting-edge recycling technology can separate, clean and extract polyester and cotton from end-of-life textiles and polyester packaging to produce virgin polyester and cotton. Information can be found at www.wornagain.ch

Compare the needed process from densifying (baling / briquetting) at the supplier up to the de-densifying at the WA recycling plant and elaborate the potential cost efficiency of briquettes vs. bales
