UPSET Textiles is commercializing a groundbreaking technology to 100% rejuvenate and upcycle cotton waste into virgin quality cotton fibers. We’re building a supply chain from feedstock collection to the production of 100% rejuvenated yarns. We have validated the technology and will have a plant run in Belgium, before building a factory in India in 2021.
