With this ISKO will be able to advance and commercialize recycling technologies which will enable the company to offer a 100% post-consumer recycling solution to its customers.

Fatih Konukoğlu, CEO, ISKO said, “The Green Machine uses an innovative and ultra-efficient hydrothermal treatment method that decomposes cotton into cellulose powders and enables the separation of polyester fibers from blended fabrics.”

“The process is a closed-loop and uses only water, heat and less than 5 percent biodegradable green chemicals. Crucially, this method maintains the quality of polyester fibers; the cellulose powders, which are clean and toxic-free, can be used in a variety of ways,” Konukoğlu added.

Moreover, ISKO and HKRITA will collaborate to develop related technology, firming the company’s position as a spearhead in sustainability.
