The fashion industry contributes to 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Its CO2 emissions are more than those of all flights. Moreover, if nothing is done, it will be responsible for 1/4th of the global CO2 emission in 2050. At Fairbrics, we provide an innovative solution to the textile industry to accelerate its transition towards the circular industry. To start with, we convert waste CO2 into polyester fabric using molecular chemistry. Using our technology, polyester can be produced with least environmental impact.
CO2 is captured from industrial sources, reacted with a catalyst and solvent to generate chemicals that are used for polyester synthesis. These chemicals are polymerized to create polyester pellets which are then spun into yarn and finally into fabric. In a near future our technology would produce carbon negative 100% sustainable PET.
We are setting up our pilot plant to be able to scale up our technology and open our first industrial plant in a few years capable of producing commercial volumes of polyester fibre. In order to get there, we will be continuing our research into maximizing our output while minimizing environmental and social impact – while of course, producing the best fibre quality.
Polyester is a synthetic fabric that’s usually derived from petroleum or coal. This material is made up of purified terephthalic acid (PTS) and monoethylene glycol (MEG).
Fairbrics has developed a novel process to create the components of polyester from waste CO2 . The polyester products are then prepared in the exact same way as using fossil based products.
Polyester today makes up more than 65% of fibers used in the textile and apparel industry. The fashion industry contributes to 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions. if nothing is done, it will be responsible for 1/4 of the global CO2 emission in 2050.
Fairbrics has developed a novel process to create the components of polyester from waste CO2 which is otherwise made up from petroleum and deplete fossil resources. Using Fairbrics’ technology one can fight climate change not only by reducing CO2 but also by using it to make the most common fabric.
Microplastic and Microfibre pollution in the water supply is a growing concern, especially in the textile and apparel industries. However, it is not only a problem of polyester. ALL fabrics and fibres shed, whether natural or synthetic. According to a research, only 8.2% of oceanic fibers are synthetic, with most being cellulosic (79.5%) or of animal origin (12.3%).
Today we are using CO2 capture from industrial fumes that would have been otherwise released in the air. It is a very cheap waste, 10 times less expensive than petroleum products. Our dream from the future is to use CO2 that has been directly capture from the air and so directly reducing global warming.
