Horizon Europe is the European Union's most effective instrument for subsidising innovation and research. Its main objectives are to promote Europe's scientific leadership and industrial competitiveness. It will achieve this by tackling the 'grand challenges' such as the green and digital transformation, sustainable growth and social well-being. This ambitious programme is the largest of its kind worldwide, with a total budget of more than €95 billion.

Today, we are honoured with the Techtextil Innovation Award for our development aimed at enhancing the recycling of thermoplastic fibre composites used in aircraft parts.

Discover how the COLECOTEX project produced eco-responsible dyes from streams of non valorized rhubarb and pomegranate fractions and applied them to bio-based fibres.

Centexbel - Grâce-Hollogne specializes in circular textiles and plastics, with a strong emphasis on sorting and recycling.

This white paper will not only provide textile companies with information on textile recycling processes, but also on facilitating technologies for sorting and disintegration of textile products as well as virtual platforms that connect stakeholders and inform consumers.

In this interview with Mr. Jean-Luc Derycke, representing Utexbel, ALIGNED explores Utexbel’s specific role within the project.
