About Bringing circularity to textiles and plastics

Worn Again Technologies was born from a vision to enable the ‘circularity of raw materials’ for clothing and textiles, accelerating us towards a waste-free world.

For the last decade Worn Again Technologies has been developing an environmentally-friendly physical chemistry, solvent-based polymer recycling technology which has the potential to recycle the raw materials in up to 80% of all non-rewearable textiles, globally. The process is able to separate, decontaminate and extract raw materials from end-of-use polyester and cotton textiles and re-use them as virgin equivalent inputs for new textiles. Our unique chemical process is also applicable for PET bottles to textiles.
