To promote/facilitate and monitor circular economy commitments related to the selective collection of all products made with textiles.
These commitments are determined by current or future European, federal and regional legislation, related and relevant environmental agreements, other contracts and/or agreements.
Circletex reports on the quantities marketed in Belgium, the selectively collected quantities and the amount of recycled fibres and strives to increase circularity through various channels.
Facilitation via a digital matchmaking platform:
- relationships/collaboration between end-users, service providers, manufacturers & other stakeholders
- matching supply and demand of materials/products
Facilitate selective collection, sorting and valorisation of:
- pre-consumer textile flows (manufacturing residues, unsold products, …)
- post-consumer textile flows (used products, end-of-life products, …)
Application of circular economy principles by facilitating:
- Product maintenance/life extension, reuse/repair
- Upgrading and recycling of raw materials
Who are the founders of Circletex?
Creamoda, Febelsafe and FBT, together with several leading companies, established Circletex. Circletex is a voluntary system which, in preparation for the forthcoming legislation, provides an answer to the valorisation of collected textiles with the ultimate aim of promoting circularity.
We are starting with flat linen, work clothing and protective products containing textiles, collectively referred to as professional textiles. Later this year, we will be looking at consumer textiles, more on that later.
Who are our pioneers:
- Creamoda (Federation of the Belgian clothing and garment sector)
- FBT (Federation of Belgian textile care)
- Febelsafe (Belgian federation of manufacturers, distributors, service providers and professional end users regarding safety and welfare)
With the support of Circular Flanders (OVAM) and partners Denuo and Fedustria.
