OnceMore® is the world’s first large-scale process for recycling blended fabrics, and it’s the forest that makes it all possible. The process combines post-consumer textile waste with renewable wood from Södras 51,000 members.
One of the biggest challenges in textile recycling is that fabrics rarely consist of pure cotton. In the OnceMore® process, we separate cotton and polyester from polycotton blends, one of the world’s most widely used textile types.
The cellulose from the cotton fibres are then combined with cellulose from renewable wood. The result is a high quality dissolving pulp that is used by the textile industry to produce viscose and lyocell.
Let´s kick the habit of textile waste!
OnceMore® is produced at our Mill in Mörrum in the southern part of Sweden. We are the first and only supplier to transform post-consumer textile waste enriched with sustainably managed wood into virgin-quality pulp on an industrial scale. The Wood is FSC and/or PEFC-certified and the textile is RCS certified. Based on our unique technology, OnceMore® provides drop-in products that are easy-to-implement in existing production of our partners.
Our OnceMore® pulp and the product we deliver is a high alpha cellulose pulp for textile applications. Today our product contains 20% recycled textile and 80% renewable wood. The result is a high quality dissolving pulp that is used by the textile industry to produce viscose and lyocell.
