The SCIRT website is on its way...

We are on an innovation journey towards a circular fashion system

SCIRT is a unique collaboration between industry and research, involving the entire textiles value chain, aiming to push all the boundaries in order to create real change and support the transition to a circular fashion industry.

This H2020 project brings together 18 frontrunners across Europe, including major brands, industry leaders and research organisations.

For the next 3 years, they will work together to demonstrate an entire textile-to-textile recycling system for post-consumer textiles, focusing on the recycling of natural and synthetic fibres, as well as fibre blends. The project aims to enable conditions and supporting measures to facilitate the transition towards a circular system for apparel, while giving special attention to the consumer perspective.

SCIRT is coordinated by VITO an independent Flemish research organisation in the area of cleantech and sustainable development. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
