Evrnu’s® first technology, Nucycl®, creates a closed-loop system where textile waste can be collected and converted into new fiber on a continuous cycle, helping to significantly reduce resource depletion, waste accumulation and environmental damage. In 3 years, Evrnu® will be making 9,000 tons of Nucycl® fiber each year. Each kilo of fiber will divert one kilo of cotton waste from landfills and prevent 3-5 kilos of CO2e emissions from landfills, potentially giving Nucycl® fiber a negative carbon footprint.
Over $460B of used or unwanted clothing is buried or burned each year without regard for the inherent value and resources it contains. Utilizing our patented process, we convert that waste into a new valuable textile resource
A. COLLECT, SORT, SHRED TEXTILE WASTE
B. LIQUIFY/PURIFY INTO LIQUID PULP
C. EXTRUDE PULP INTO FIBER
D. WEAVE/KNIT FIBER INTO FABRIC
E. FABRIC IS THEN TURNED INTO GARMENTS
F. UNWANTED GARMENTS GET RECYCLED AGAIN AND AGAIN
Our fiber is equal to or stronger than the cotton or polyester it can replace.
100% Nucycl® means 100% cotton textile waste. 31% Nucycl® equals 31% cotton textile waste and 69% wood pulp.
Nucycl® can be recycled up to 5x and can utilize retailer's "take back" programs as a raw material input.
Nucycl® fiber is fully compostable and biodegradable.
Can be formed and reformed™ up to 5 times with no quality or performance deficit.
Why This Matters
The fashion industry represents 3-5% of global carbon emissions and 90% of apparel is landfilled or incinerated. Over $460B of used or unwanted clothing is buried or burned each year without regard for the inherent value and resources it contains. Evrnu's® patented process converts that waste into a new valuable textile resource.
What You Can Do
Seek clothing made with recycled materials which are also recyclable. Reduce your consumption — 20%+ of clothing purchased is never worn. Look to repair or reuse clothing items which are still in good condition. Check for local recycling options in your area or donate to organizations like Goodwill to keep clothes in circulation.
