General Recycled has announced that it is nearing completion of construction and installation of its new textile recycling facility in Asbestos, Quebec, Canada, for the recycling of industrial workwear.
“The Quebec government encourages initiatives that help spur economic development and preserve the environment. With its innovative recycling technology, General Recycled is working to reduce the environmental footprint of aramid fibers. The Quebec government is an enthusiastic backer of the new facility in Asbestos, providing $965,000 in funding. In addition, General Recycled’s growing operations in the Estrie region will create over 15 jobs in the region,” says Richmond MNA André Bachand.
Aromatic Polyamide (aramid) fiber and fabrics are used extensively in fire-resistant garment protection among industries across North America, Europe and around the globe. General Recycled works with companies to properly dispose of their non-biodegradable garments by returning them back into a usable fiber, yarn and fabrics that meet all applicable industry standards.
