Sustainability aspects of SaXcell

An LCA (Life Cycle Analysis) of the SaXcell® process was executed by CE Delft (NL), specialized in this area.

The environmental impact of SaXcell pulp from 100% white cotton waste resulting from this LCA-study was compared with literature data on the environmental impact of sulphate pulp from different sources in five impact categories.

SaXcell pulp shows much lower impact values than existing sulphate pulps also for human toxicity and water depletion.

The most remarkable difference is found for the agricultural land occupation. The impact value of the SaXcell pulp is almost negligible (0,01 m2a), caused by the fact that recycling processes do not require the cultivation of trees or plants.

SaXCell Recycle Loop

Fibers based on the SaXcell process fit seamlessly within existing supply chains and fill the gap between waste and raw materials. With regards to the downstream processing installations no specific requirements are needed. SaXcell is therefore the missing link in building a closed, circular value chain in textiles. The gathering of textiles is significant already and, because SaXcell fits within the existing Lyocell process, the fiber can be used immediately in the textile industry. To market this technology, it is necessary to increase production to industrial volumes.

SaXcell re-uses cotton to produce yarn

Billions of kilos of cotton are being thrown away annually, but the answer to this wasteful problem might be on its way. Dutch researchers Gerrit Bouwhuis en Ger Brinks, who are connected to the Dutch Saxion University of Applied Sciences, recently unveiled SaXcell: yarn made from 100 percent cotton waste.
