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.
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.
NOTE: All textiles should be laundered and clean.
|Fibre type||Cotton||> 50%|
|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|
|RFID-tags||See pictures below|
