Puma scale-up their textile-to-textile recycling technology, creating all future Replica Football Kit .

Global sports company PUMA has announced that it has scaled up its textile recycling innovation, RE:FIBRE, replacing recycled polyester with RE:FIBRE technology in all PUMA football Club and Federation replica jerseys from 2024 onwards. Through the RE:FIBRE program, PUMA is keen to address the challenge of textile waste via a long-term solution for recycling. The technology also looks to diversify the fashion industry’s main source of recycled polyester in garments from being less reliant on clear plastic bottles. The RE:FIBRE process uses any polyester material – from factory offcuts, faulty goods to pre-loved clothes which allows new garments to be recycled from any colour textile to any colour desired. The four-step process of RE:FIBRE sees: Collect and Sort: Collecting and sorting textile waste and other previously wasteful materials. Shred and Mix: Shredding and mixing the collected materials down to the minimum. Dissolve, Filter and Polymerize: Melting down the shredded polyester and ridding them of previous dyes through a chemical recycling process. Melt, Spin, Knit and Sew: The melting allows the newly produced polymers to become ready to be spun and sewn into shape to create good as new RE:FIBRE fabric which can be recycled again and again. https://www.the-spin-off.com/news/stories/The-Brands-How-Puma-is-accelerating-on-circularity-17671
