Novetex textiles launch Billie System

Novetex Textiles Limited opens the next chapter in its illustrious history with the launch of a new textile mill in Tai Po, Hong Kong’s manufacturing hub, says a recent press release.

Home to its latest project, the first textile mill to open in Hong Kong in almost half a century aims to provide an innovative solution to tackle one of the biggest problems of the industry: textile waste. According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, ‘every second, the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is landfilled.’

With an initial investment of HK$15 million and following two years of development, The Billie System is a game-changer for brands and companies looking to revive excess inventory, unused raw materials, or textile waste.

While most recycling processes require high volumes of water and chemicals, The Billie System does not consume water, emit wastewater, or produce chemical waste.

The system combines new and existing technologies to create an efficient solution for recycling textile waste while reducing adverse impacts on the environment.

“The launch of The Billie System is just the next step in a series of innovations that have come before,” says Ronna Chao, Chairman of Novetex Textiles Limited.

“Sustainability is not a trend but a necessity, and by providing an efficient practice for companies and brands, we are tackling not just a local problem but a global one,” Ronna Chao added.
