Throughout the 36-months duration, the project activities will demonstrate not only the depolymerisation process of the polyester textile wastes from shoemaking industry via catalytic glycolysis but also the viability of obtaining the chemical monomer (Bis(2-hydroxyethyl) terephthalate) with enough quality for its re-polimerisation to polyester fibres and the ultimate transformation of theses fibres into yarn for its final use in the manufacturing of new textile products.
