Karla Magruder, Accelerating Circularity, Founder and President
Thus far, Accelerating Circularity has successfully achieved several key steps in our goal towards creating a scalable circular process in the textile industry.
We completed the following steps: Research existing systems, Mapped and Modeled potential new supply chain systems.
We are now in the pilot phase and have recycled cotton and polyester post-consumer textiles, run yarn and fabric trials, and done both RSL and physical testing of recycled materials.
1) Sorting & Preprocessing
2) Creating the necessary volumes of material flows by fiber and format requirements
Our work at Accelerating Circularity is to foster collaboration and try to drive the development of new systems
