China Pushes For Textile Waste Recycling


China aims to recycle 25% of all its textile waste and churn out 2 million tonnes of recycled fibre by 2025 as part of its push to peak its carbon emissions by 2030 and become carbon-neutral by 2060.

It hopes to greatly increase its recycling capability and have a waste textile recycling system “initially established” by 2025, according to a document jointly released by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the ministry of industry and information technology and the ministry of Commerce.

According to the document “Implementation Opinions on Accelerating the Recycling of Waste Textiles”, the government hopes to have in place by 2030 a relatively complete system achieving a recycling rate of 30% for waste textiles and producing 3 million tonnes of recycled fibre.
