The Project

Overview



Aim

The project aims to realise the potential of a circular system for performance sportswear consisting of 100% bio-based, mono-component garments made from castor-bean Polyamide 10,10, including take-back of the the garments and production scrap and their use in fibre-to-fibre recycling.

Funding

The BioAce project is supported by 10,000 EUR funding with the contribution of the COSME programme of the European Union, through the S4Fashion programme.

Project Goals

  • Creation of knitted fabric and test garments from bio-based PA 10,10 yarn
  • Proof-of-concept recyclability study with production scraps
  • Feasibility and impact analyis of the circular system
