Summary

Balena is on a mission to create a circular model for consumer goods products and solve one of the fashion industry’s biggest challenges: the products’ end of life.
Balena is looking to ensure the sustainable consumption and production of materials used in the fashion industry.
Millions of garments are being dumped into landfills or being burnt every year, polluting the earth and the oceans with dangerous microplastics that will not biodegrade for hundreds of years. With no holistic end-of-life solution in sight, leading global fashion brands are racing to find new sustainable solutions to handle their products’ end of life.
Balena’s answer to this burning topic is the BioCir™ material, the company’s first developed material. BioCir™ is a flexible and fully compostable thermoplastic material, reducing toxic, fossil fuel-based materials used in the fashion and footwear industries.

Summary

We address three key challenges of today’s fashion industry: the need for transparent supply chains, the ability to prove product origin and to support sustainability claims. Our DNA marker creates a unique fingerprint to identify a brand, a supplier or even production lot.

Summary

What if you could stop used clothes from ending up in dumpsters and instead capture the value of their precious raw materials? Regenerate them into beautiful, new, textile fibers that look and feel like cotton. That’s what Infinited Fiber Company’s technology does. It turns cellulose-rich materials – like old clothes, used carboard, or rice straw – into unique, biodegradable soft fibers: Infinna™.

Founded in Finland in 2016, Infinited Fiber Company is on a mission to make circularity in textiles an everyday reality. The regenerated Infinna™ fiber is currently created out of 100% post-consumer textile waste. It has been proven to work beautifully on its own for 100% regenerated yarns and fabrics and to blend easily with other fibers.

THE NEW COTTON PROJECT

The New Cotton Project is an EU-funded consortium of brands, manufacturers, suppliers, innovators, and research institutes, set to demonstrate and define a blueprint for circular fashion. Infinited Fiber Company is leading the project, which also aims to inspire further, even bigger circular initiatives in the industry.
