Abstract

The textile sector - third economic sector in Italy - is the centre of strong attention with regard to sustainability of the phases that make up its manufacturing and supply chains (pre-consumer, use, post-consumer). Every year, tons of wastes end up in landfills. Wastes that could be re-introduced into a new production cycle, with a perspective of circular economy and industrial symbiosis. In this context was set up and implemented a project titled: Ediltex - Innovation for the reuse in textile companies - a research and training project financed by Fondimpresa. The project involves the Technology research team of the DAD (Department of Architecture and Design, Politecnico di Torino, IT), E-work, the Grow up consortium and several companies in the textile sector located in Tuscany (IT). Ediltex is a training and research project based on an open innovation model. The aims are: to provide proper skills to the enterprises in order to support technological innovation and the implementation of a recycling supply-chain; to test the opportunity to use such wastes as secondary raw materials for manufacturing environmentally friendly products to be used in building and eco-design sectors. The paper deal with the activities carried out: the development of learning actions, the study of the manufacturing chains; the input-output analysis of textile wastes; the environmental assessment (based on a life cycle approach) of reusing and recycling processes. The results involve a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) of three different scenarios for reuse and recycling of textile wastes as new resources for the building sector.
