REACT is a H2020 Research and Innovation Action that addresses the management of waste acrylic textiles coming from outdoor awnings and furnishing. A crucial issue is the analysis and removal of finishing substances that affect the secondary raw material purity and their management. REACT aims to implement a mechanical recycling process to obtain second life fibre and fabrics, by removing hazardous materials on finishing of waste acrylic textile – with a safe utilisation and disposal of removed substances. The final goal is to define an innovative process for hazardous chemicals removal from finished acrylic textiles to obtain a fully compatible recycled acrylic textile for reuse.
