STARTUP TEXTILE CONNECTION Milano Unica 35th Edition
This edition will feature nine StartUps (Hall 8) covering the broadest spectrum: from sustainable yarn production to textile waste management, quality control, traceability and digital solutions.
"Biofashiontech is a new recycling technology for textile fibers with a low environmental impact. It processes urban and industrial textile waste into new raw materials, enabling the transition from the current linear economy model to a more sustainable circular economy.
The technology is based on a biotechnological, energy-efficient process without the use of harmful chemicals that separates natural fiber fabrics (cotton, linen, viscose, etc.) but also cotton-polyester blends and dyes. In this way, pure monomers are obtained that can then be used in the industrial production of bioethanol, plastics or new polymers.
Lifecycle before recycle
Currently any fiber - organic, synthetic or mixed - no matter if virgin or recycled, poses a problem for the environment.
Synthetic fibers are polluting the food chain in the oceans, while natural fibers, up to 4x more present, are interfering in the water chemical balance.
There is yet no recipe for a full sustainable production of any sort, but Fiberlink® is drastically reducing the problem upstream, improving circularity by extending product lifecycle, while keeping fibers out of the oceans.
The Nazena project is a Vicenza-based start-up that targets circular economy in the textile industry: from industrial waste and used apparel to environmentally sustainable products and durable packaging.
The Nazena project aims at revolutionizing the world of fashion and packaging by making them sustainable. This is Nazena’s vision, the Vicenza-based start-up that collects waste textiles from industries and individuals to produce new products.
Neurality has developed an AI platform to analyze fabrics and identify any abnormality in real time. Regardless of the type of fabric, for a new product to be developed all it takes is scanning a few meters of compliant fabric and within a minute the system is ready for the analysis.
smartFAB is a Milan-based innovative startup that offers a user-friendly Industrial Analytics platform that enables workers to analyze and predict the performance of manufacturing processes and the quality of the final product. The solution connects product, process, and machine data to create a holistic view of the factory and uses machine learning and other forms of artificial intelligence to transform, organize, and present data in the form of actionable and understandable insights. In short, the platform simplifies industrial analytics by shortening the decision-making process while increasing the success of engineers and managers.
