It is learned that Andritz will design and manufacture continuous processing equipment for CIRC facilities worldwide.

The deal comes after months of CIRC testing at Andritz’s research and development facilities.

At the same time, CIRC technology can separate and recover mixed polymer strands, including any blend of polyester and cotton.

Jorma Latva-Kokko, vice-president of mechanical pulping in the paper, fiber and recycling division at Andritz said, “CIRC’s technology is positioned to capture a significant portion of the global circular textile market, and Andritz can enable that success with our expansive engineering and equipment capabilities.”

On the other hand, Dr. Julie Willoughby, CIRC’s chief scientific officer, added, “The Andritz team is working shoulder-to-shoulder with CIRC to implement our vision of a circular economy for textiles and beyond.”

The partners have not yet announced a timeline for building and commissioning the first commercial facilities.
