preserving high-value polymers for the industry.
Molecular Bio Recycling - inspired by nature, enhanced with biotechnology.
Only 1% of all textile waste gets recycled into new
A GLOBAL CHALLENGE
Not only does the global textile waste largely contribute to polluting the environment with toxins and GHG emissions on the landfills.
It is also an economical desaster as the most valuable polymers are being destroyed instead of reused.
Rheiazymes’ YARN-TO-YARN® industry application for the textile induxstry therefore focusses on keeping the most expensive polymer, Polyamide in an infinite loop.

THE FUTURE OF RECYCLING
Biotech solutions for recycling are ermerging. With its proprietary Molecular Bio Recycling technology, Rheiazymes provides the complementing piece nedded to close the recycling gap for functional fabrics.
Enzymatic recycling ensures precise separation of blended materials, and allows for materials to become infinitely circular with a positive impact for the environment.
saved of greenhouse gas emissions compared to producing and discarding virgin material.
THE FUTURE OF RECYCLING
YARN-TO-YARN® is our commitment to closing the recycling gap for synthetic yarn blends and functional textiles, through our proprietary Molecular Bio-Recycling technology. Using natural enzymes, we recover raw materials on a molecular level - in a biological process inspired by nature.
The application focuses on developing the technology for polyamide-elastane (PA/EA) blends and, establishing a circular YARN-TO-YARN® ecosystem.
