Sustainability is
at the heart of SaXcell


SaXcell stems from the belief that by turning used textiles into new textiles we can reduce (or avoid) the depletion of natural resources, which in turn contributes to safeguarding the livelyhoods of future generations.

We challenge ourselves to design our processes in the most sustainable way possible and share our experience for others to follow suit.

We want to have a positive impact on the environment because we care. The people we work with share a similar level of caring. We simply can’t do it differently.


Innovation

Innovation is key for solving the problems of the future.
More specifically, we are passionate about turning used textiles
into new textiles and overcome all obstacles in our way through
innovative technologies and ways of working.

Please check out our technology section for more information on the technological progress we make.

Collaboration

Making the textile industry more sustainable requires collaboration.
It is the only way forward in shaping a more sustainable future,
which is what SaXcell strives for.

It includes collaboration with partners in the supply chain,
with investors, with research institutes and other stakeholders.

Transparency

Honesty, open communication and sharing of information contributes to changing industry practices for the better and realizing SaXcell’s mission.

This includes substantiating the positive impact that we make. Even though we operate in a competitive market, we will disclose information to our stakeholders about the way we operate and how sustainable we believe we are. Being challenged as a result of this will help us to further improve.

SaXcell is in the process of developing a set of indicators to monitor -and report on- our sustainability achievements. We aim to publish in LCA analysis 2024.

Innovation to SaXcell is about change that we need to solve the problems of the future.

The unique features of the SaXcell fiber are made from used textiles;

Made to last
It’s made from used textiles; this requires much less water, land and chemicals compared to conventional cotton. A truly circular fiber.
Recycled used textiles
Our process uses about 10 liter of water per kg SaXcell, whereas for growing cotton, water consumption is at least 2000 liter of water per kg of cotton.
Sustainable production
It’s sustainable; the recycling process used is a lyocell process. This is more sustainable than growing cotton or using a viscose process for recycling. Less dyes are needed to colour the SaXcell fibers which further reduces the negative environmental impact.
Global partnership
Through this collaboration across borders and continents that SaXcell continues to evolve and grow. It is the only way forward in shaping a more sustainable future, which is what SaXcell strives for. It includes collaboration with partners in the supply chain, with investors, with research institutes and other stakeholders.

SaXcell uses molecules, not fibers. We make new fibers
