RadiciGroup companies participate in projects financed with direct and indirect funding from the European Union
Radici Yarn joins forces with three important partners, VMC, Norman and Nytex, players in the women’s and men’s hosiery and seamless wear world, to become one of the select winners of the Fashiontech tender with the ReuSix project. Via the European Regional Development Fund ERDF, this call for tender supports R&D projects (industrial research and experimental development) aimed at innovation in the Textile, Fashion and Accessory sector in accordance with principles of sustainability for all steps in the production chain, from design to the choice of materials, production and product distribution, all with the utmost respect for the environment.
The Cross Industry Agreement (CIA) is a voluntary collaboration for the prevention of microplastic release into the aquatic environment during the washing of synthetic textiles. The signatories are five European industry associations representing the global value chain of garments and their associated maintenance, namely AISE, CIRFS, EOG, EURATEX and FESI. The unintentional release of microplastic into global marine and freshwater is of concern for human health and the environment even though the potential risks remain to be fully assessed, as scientists advise (SAPEA, January 2019). Recently, the focus has shifted to identify and quantify sources of microplastic pollution in order to ultimately find solutions. Each actor can play a role based on its knowledge and position in the value chain and beyond. Industry stakeholders can use their technical knowledge, leverage and expertise within their own domains to accelerate investigating, and finding and deploying solutions which may be explored in textile manufacture, garment making, during clothing washing and use, and in waste water treatment.
The CarE-Service project promotes innovative business models, based on a circular economy, with advanced mobility services that make use of hybrid and electrical vehicles. These kinds of business models work around reusing, regenerating and recycling components and materials from such vehicles for applications in the automotive industry and other sectors.
The PERFORM project facilitates the development of highly efficient and integrated electrochemical system technologies that considerably improve chemical oxidative transformations which use bio-based raw materials. PERFORM provides solutions for electrification processes in the chemical industry and envisages the creation of a versatile pilot installation: the PowerPlatform, which will also be used after the project’s completion to enable even more innovations.
Radici Yarn, alongside two important partners: VMC & Maris, part of the world of women’s & men’s hosiery, respectively, is one of the few successful candidates of the Smart Fashion & Design tender with the project: Noylon (No Oil Nylon). Through the “European Regional Development Fund ERDF” this tender funds experimental development projects with effective and proven impact on the fashion and/or design supply chain, with a particular focus on the topic of eco-industry.
Logit Sro (production of: twisted, air-entangled and heat-set BCF yarns for PA and PP carpets) participates in the programme of Contributions established by the European Union. The project’s aim is to bring about a significant quantitative and qualitative change in the development of the professional skills of employees and an overall increase in quality and productivity as a key indicator for the future competitiveness of our companies in the textile sector.
