Recycling of Trevira CS textiles

Recycling of Trevira CS textiles
  • Trevira CS textiles are a valuable raw material and within the framework of a return and recycle concept, they can proceed on to appropriate new uses at the end of their useful life.  Possible end uses are, for instance, materials for insulation or soundproofing – which could include applications in acoustic panels in office or conference premises, in the hotel and hospitality sectors and in public buildings.

This is how it works:

  • We take back Trevira fabrics in 100% flame retardant fibres and yarns at the end of their useful life.
  • An important precondition is that the fabrics consist of 100 % Trevira CS and that they have passed the Trevira CS trademark test. This is because only via the trademark approval number registered at Trevira it is possible to identify the textiles and accept them in the recycling system. The fabrics also need to be clean, dry and free of contaminations and composite materials.
  • If you are a fabric supplier you can inform your customers – e.g. furnishers – about this opportunity.
  • If you are for instance a hotel owner or if you wish to refurbish your house, you or your interior furnishing contractor can send the old Trevira CS materials back to us. You can request a copy of the trademark approval for the old fabrics from the respective supplier.
  • These fabrics are put on stock until the required quantities have been collected for dispatch. They then proceed on to mechanical processing and recycling.
  • To ensure sustainability in implementing the recycling process, Trevira will take into account the location of the end consumer. Fabrics sent in by companies in the European area are collected in the Trevira production plant in Bobingen (S. Germany), for onward transmission to recycling, while sensible local arrangements are made for textiles outside Europe.
