RIL’s Biodegradable fabric R|Elan™ EcoGold with CiCLO® reduces environmental textile waste impact.

While ever increasing demand for eco-friendly products from eco-conscious consumers has enforced apparel brands and fashion houses to seek unique chemistry that can provide a biological solution to environment[1]related issues, R|Elan™ EcoGold with CiCLO® fabric offers a solution with its design to reduce the persistence of textile waste in landfills and other related conditions.

Today one of the major challenges faced by the environment is the accumulation of textile waste. In the fashion industry, a majority percentage of post-consumer textile waste, weighing millions of tons, end up in landfills. These waste textiles can take up to more than 400 years to decompose.

In such a scenario, it is extremely important to be aware and take responsibility to come up with new path-breaking solutions that can ensure the reduction of textile waste in landfills.

The newest addition in the R|Elan™ eco-friendly technologies collection R|Elan™ EcoGold with CiCLO® presents an innovative effort that will help reduce the impact of unrecycled textiles on the environment.

This technology enables microbes living in the environment to break down the materials and convert them into basic elements like carbon dioxide, water, minerals etc. just like they break down natural fibres.

The chemistry used to make the product is proven to be safe for use in sustainable textiles by OEKO-TEX ECO PASSPORT, an independent certification system.

“We have introduced a new path[1]breaking solution in sustainable fashion”

A source from RIL said that innovation and sustainability are at the core of their R|Elan™ initiatives and continued: “To further strengthen the core, we have introduced a new path-breaking solution in sustainable fashion – R|Elan™ EcoGold with CiCLO® that will help fight the issue of textile waste, conserve the environment and at the same time satisfy the consumer needs of style and sustainability. We are using one of the leading CiCLO® technology of Intrinsic Advanced Materials that makes R|Elan™ EcoGold based fabrics to degrade under specific conditions, thus reducing the persistence of textile accumulation in landfills.”

In the collaboration with Reliance and R|Elan™ EcoGold, Alastair Drew from Intrinsic Advanced Materials, CICLO stated that CiCLO® collaborated with Reliance to make products that people love and have a clear conscience about the impact that those products have on the earth. He noted: “Together, we will make a meaningful impact, one step at a time.

R|Elan™ EcoGold will help apparel retailers globally by giving them access to eco-friendly fibres that can be used to make garments that will meet the needs of conscious consumers.
