Since the developed process keeps the original re-used fibers full in sight, DenimX is able to create products with unique aesthetics that are able to tell the story of their origin. As a source DenimX may use either textile waste streams of the client (e.g. cut waste from textile production, abundant work wear or sport apparel, discarded hotel textiles, etc.) or post-consumer ‘waste’ that is collected and processed by specialized companies.
Alted’s goal is to accelerate the introduction of new materials into the construction market, by transforming them into ready-to-install architectural products with a clear approach: balancing aesthetics and functionality with the Circular Economy principles. The construction sector has a strong ecological impact, it produces 40% of the global CO₂ emissions – and this number will double by 2040. Alted approaches this big societal challenge from the materiality, since 1/2 of the emissions produced by the building industry come only from the materials, the way they are sourced, manufactured, transported, used, and finally demolished into waste – the embodied carbon.
