Abstract

The textile industry, the third largest manufacturing sector in Italy, is one of the most impacting activities on a global level from an environmental point of view, both in relation to the processes that characterize the supply chain and in relation to pre- and post-consumer waste. In line with the policies of the European Commission [COM (2015) 614] and with the requirements of the Minimum Environmental Criteria for Public Procurement in Italy [DM. 11/10/2017], the article illustrates some researches fi nalised to the integration of pre-consumer textile waste into building products. In particular, two studies are described: ReCash Plaster (Recycled Cashmere for Plaster), aimed at recycling wool and cashmere fi bres inside the plaster mixture; MAST (Mattone in Argilla con Scarti Tessili - clay brick with textile scraps), aimed at integrating polyester fi bres into clay bricks. The researches were developed by the technology research team of the DAD (Department of Architecture and Design) of the Politecnico di Torino in partnership with companies in the textile and building sector. The results obtained show the potential of upcycling for the building industry and new scenarios of circular economy.
