Of the 92 million tons of used textiles worldwide every year, 87% are either landfilled or thermally disposed of, which is extremely harmful to the environment and contributes significantly to global warming.vThe founders of CRCL have developed an innovative process with which they produce the resource-saving and recyclable granulate Apatura from used textiles and plastic waste. The granulate is a real alternative to virgin plastic, both economically and ecologically. It opens up many possible applications, such as in the furniture industry for the production of high-quality and sustainable interior products.
