Work plan for Environmental Protection Administration, Executive Yuan-“Textile Recycle Project.” (2018)
To establish the baseline of the manufacturing material flow for the industry, collect and analyze the general situation in the Taiwan textile industry and related information on textile material flow. Also, discuss textile waste treatment or the reuse techniques and methods, to boost the effectiveness of resource recycling.
Work plan for Environmental Protection Administration, Executive Yuan-“Promoting Textile Resource Recycling Project.” (2019)
Counsel upstream and downstream manufacturers in the domestic textile industry to organize a textile recycling economy alliance. Conduct the business model of textile resource recycling in the form of a workshop. Discuss green agreement and continue to study the trend and approach for textile resource recycling in Taiwan. Besides, propose the Circular Economy Vision Report of Taiwan Textile Industry.
Explore the model for textile resource recycles by Environmental Protection Administration, Executive Yuan-“Expand Promoting the Project Work Scheme of Circular Economic Model of Plastic.”
Polyester and Nylon are the two critical raw materials in Taiwan and down provides a long lifespan. The project advocates a co-innovation lab for textile. Deeply investigate the challenges that are facing, co-design a provisional process, develop a potential resource recycling model, and try to build a strategic partnership.
Department of Industrial Technology, Ministry of Economic Affairs-the third sub-item of Constructing Plan for Testing and Certification of Smart Functional Textile System: Resource Recycling Textile Verification and Evaluation Technology (2018-2021)
Construct a closed industrial cycle for Taiwan textile from the perspective of testing and certification to assist the transformation of the domestic textile industry towards sustainable development. Allow manufacturers to trial their test field by setting up a third-party resource certification system and develop a system for tracing the origin of the resource textile material. For instance, the cloud service platform for resource recycles.
Department of Industrial Technology, Ministry of Economic Affairs-Innovation and Prospective Technology Research Project of TTRI “Verifying the Development of Textile Resource Recycling Service Platform.” (2018-2019)
Conceive a textile resource trading platform that matches the stock fabrics of the manufacturers and designers with a double loop design to increase the value of fabrics. Introduce sustainable textile-related specific requirements or third-party certification can contribute stakeholders abundant and transparent information. This ensures the source of the obtained textile materials meets the sustainable development goals.
Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs-“Constructing and Demonstrating the System of verifying fiber material recycle” (2020-)
Research and plan a verifying program for fibrous material recycling. This ensures the quality of recycled fiber and raises the confidence for the traders to use the recycled materials. The transparency of reusable fibrous material is also enhanced. Furthermore, it can be seen as the medium between the brand and society to stimulate the market demand.
