Girbau’s Focus on Circularity Produces the First Results

Students of  Industrial Design Engineering at Elisava (University School of Design and Engineering in Barcelona) together with Girbau Lab, the open innovation platform at Girbau have created Clint, a recyclable new material made from the textile waste left in the filters of dryers. Clint aims to be a new step of Girbau’s initiative towards a circular economy model in industrial laundry.

According to Girbau, the machines produced by the supplier based in Vic (Barcelona, Spain) wash around 25,000 tonnes of linen a day all over the world, and in Catalonia alone industrial laundries are estimated to generate 1,500 kg of waste a week.
