A large-scale project to develop new biochemical recycling technologies for post-consumer textile waste and the establishment of symbiotic business models between the textile, clothing and chemical industry to re-use recovered materials from textile waste as building blocks for new chemical products.
A pre-industrial scale pilot plant incorporating several of the new technologies developed throughout the project has been installed at the University of Maribor in Slovenia.
Major progress was made in connecting 100 fashion companies across
Europe with the eBIZ standard for digital data exchange in the textile and
fashion supply chain.
Thanks to a co-funding from the EU, this action delivered IT solutions combining the benefits of the eBIZ digital language with RFID or NFC technologies.
Several SMEs and companies in Italy, France and Spain, benefited from technical support to exchange digital data in their value chain, improving the time to market as well as warehouse management, and test traceability of products.
The project focused on a better organisation of apprenticeships, particularly especially in small and micro-enterprises of the Textile and Fashion sector. It developed training materials and tools to assist companies in setting up, planning, delivering, and ensuring the quality of their apprenticeships, including apprentice assessment.More about TEXAPP
