EEDEN “starts upcycling” and transforms textile waste into valuable resources for new fibres.
The company has developed a chemical upcycling process for textile waste that recovers its resources. In this way, new, high-quality products can be created again from old textiles. The EEDEN team, along with its two founders, Reiner Mantsch and Steffen Gerlach, includes textile technologists, chemical engineers as well as chemists and will continue to grow in the coming months. Supported by advisors and a broad network to research and industry, the company sees itself well equipped to further scale the EEDEN technology.
“We are very pleased to have won Born2Grow as another investor for us. The long-term orientation of the fund fits perfectly with our vision to change the textile industry sustainably. With the additional capital, we are now in a position to further accelerate the scaling of our technology to serve the gigantic demand for high quality recycled fibres as quickly as possible.“
