TECHNOLOGY INSPIRED BY NATURE
It was born in 2019 by thinking about smart concept from nature and by looking at processes like bee taking nectar and transform it into honey. BFT founder thought ” what if we use this concept to a develop a technology that no mater the textile waste source it is able to turn it into something valuable without arming the environment?”. Exactly with this idea BioFashionTech R&D was started.
HOW TO UPCYCLE TEXTILES IN 4 STEPS:
THE BIOFASHIONTECH METHOD
1. WE WORK WITH POST-INDUSTRIAL AND POST-USE TEXTILE WASTE
2. WE GRIND THE MATERIAL
The material is reduced into small particles
3. WE APPLY THE BIOTECH PROCESS
Using our biotech process garments or production scraps are transomed into new chemical molecules like sugars.
4. WE RECOVER PLASTIC FIBERS AND CREATE VARIOUS PRODUCTS
Our patented pending process excludes any use of polluting chemicals and is able to recover mix synthetic plastic fibers and dyes that are usually blended in the textile and made available for new applications.
BIOFASHIONTECH, A PATENT PENDING PROCESS: THE MATERIALS
WHICH FIBERS CAN WE RECYCLE?
EMPLOYED MATERIALS – STANDARD
The technology is able to process:
alone or in different mixtures…and much more.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENTS
We believe in sustainable innovation and technologies and we are constantly engaged in R&D activity on the most complex materials provided by our customers.
Some examples? Nilon, elastane, polyaminate materials, and much more.
A TRANSFORMER THAT CREATES IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OUT OF EXISTING RESOURCES
The biological cycle of the butterfly diagram
The butterfly diagram, also known as the circular economy system diagram, depicts the continuous flow of materials in a circular economy. On the left-hand side of the butterfly diagram is the biological cycle, which is for materials that can biodegrade and safely return to the earth. Biodegradable materials, such as cotton, may eventually make their way from the technical cycle into the biological cycle once they have degraded to a point where they can no longer be used to make new products.
