Pulp OnceMore® by Södra Supplier of raw material

From textile waste to new raw material

In the OnceMore® process, textile waste is combined with renewable wood from Swedish forests to create pure, high-quality dissolving pulp for the textile industry. OnceMore® is one of Södra’s top priorities where we plan to make substantial investments in the coming years. Below you will see which types of textiles we are currently able to recycle and what we are looking for in a partner.

Cooperation for the environment and the textile industry

With OnceMore® , Södra is making an important contribution in the shift towards a sustainable textile industry. Just like Södra's other production processes, OnceMore®  is an efficient, industrial-scale process that uses renewable wood from sustainable forestry. The development of OnceMore®  is also one of our top priorities for the coming years.

OnceMore® presents a significant opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment. But we can't do this alone. Collaboration is the key to maximising the potential of OnceMore®. We are therefore interested in finding partners who can supply high volumes of textile waste for recycling.

What we are looking for

We are currently searching for white/unbleached cotton and/or polyester and cotton blends (minimum cotton content 50%). Traces of certain fibres, such as viscose and lyocell can be handled. See our material specification below. We also have the ambition to be able to handle colored textiles in the future OnceMore® process. Development work is ongoing.

Parameter   Limit
Fibre type Cotton > 50%
  Polyester < 50%
  Viscose/Lyocell < 5%
  Others (for example nylon, acryl, modacrylic, spandex, lycra, elastane) 0%
Colour   White (maximum 5% of the total area of each textile can be colored)
Moisture content   < 8%
Metal or plastic like buttons and zippers or other decorations   No
