1. Verhulst, N.H.W. Design a high value application for textile out of non-wearable second hand clothing:.

Degree: 2010, Delft University of Technology

KICI is a non-profit clothing collecting company, the third largest in The Netherlands. For over 30 years, KICI’s core business is organising the collecting of used and unwanted clothing. This is mostly done via the 800 KICI containers in the public space. Additionally, clothing can be collected during collecting events or directly via retailers. The collected clothing is sold to sorting companies which sell the wearable and fashionable clothing to Africa and Eastern Europe. The non-wearable clothing is processed by other companies and currently used in low grade applications such as cleaning cloths, non-woven sheet material and insulation material. The second hand clothing which can be worn again (wearable) is the most profitable activity, but the amount of wearable is decreasing for years. The non-wearable part is increasing, but is barely profitable. This trend threatens the existence of KICI in the long term. The assignment was to examine the options for higher grade applications which could eventually lead to an increase in demand for non-wearable clothing and secure the future of KICI and its partners. The solution must found with sustainability in mind. Early on the option of constructing a composite out of textile materials was identified as a promising possibility. Producing and strength testing material samples revealed that Acrylic based composites perform equally or better than the main competitor: non-woven hemp based composite. A Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) showed that the eco-impact (so-called eco-cost) of such a material is lower than glass fibre, but slightly higher than the hemp composite. The ecocost is largely determined by the choice of resin. Most commercially available resins consist entirely or partly of oil based monomers. Better, so-called bio-based resins are under development and will reduce the impact of composites considerably. An estimation of the material cost price revealed that the non-woven textile composites are slightly more expensive than the non woven hemp variant but the composites with woven textile fibres are cheaper, while offering better tensile strength. A new indoor collecting container was chosen as the product which will demonstrate the material. . This container can counter the trend of decreasing wearable clothing temporarily, while demonstrating the material and convincing partners for future products. Alternatively, if KICI can find a committed partner, another product could take the role of material demonstrator. NPSP, a composite manufacturing company, has shown interest in such a product in the form of a counter for a clothing shop. In combination with the other KICI innovation projects, such as the pressed non-woven sheet material and the development of the Identitex automatic sorting machine, the textile based composite can provide the needed stimulus to increase the value of the recycled fibres and ultimately secure the future for KICI.

2. Farias Garza, V.E. Creating a New Strategy: How to communicate and brand “recycled clothes”:.

Degree: 2011, Delft University of Technology

Textiles for Textiles project (T4T) was established to develop a new technology that will reduce the ecological impact of the post consumer textiles. The creation of this new technology lowers the recycling time, giving the T4T partners an opportunity to do new businesses with series of products made with recycled textiles. The T4T partners have decided to introduce these products in different markets starting with the workwear industry, since it is one of the T4T partner’s expertise. Groenendijk Bedrijfsschoenen en -Kleding B.V. has ten years of experience in the workwear industry, they have establish its own factory and have a personal concern in sustainable issues. Dealing with sustainable products offers a series of challenges that have been studied and documented in literature research. The lack of motivation, the mistrust in the sustainable claims, the green brand-wash and lack of sustainable knowledge are some of the judgments that the recycled workwear will need to overcome. It is indispensable to understand Groenendijk customer’s motivations, since it is this motivation what allows them to comply with their client’s requirements. Workwear customers have the priorities like pricing, integrated services, supplier trustworthiness and sustainability, when is affordable and have confirmation of claims. The sustainable intentions vary according to the company’s public image and their manager’s personal commitment with the environmental causes. In general, the sustainable textile market is saturated with different variations of products that have no tangible manifestation of its sustainable origin. To distinguish the product advantages in the eco-products it is necessary to have an extensive knowledge of the ecological impact of the textile processes. Hence, to provide the general customers a precise purchase incentive, it is required to communicate tangible advantages of the recycled workwear. With a new brand, the T4T project and Groenendijk would give their potential customers all the information necessary to understand, adopt, commercialize and buy recycled products. Furthermore, it also provides businesses and users with incentives that will generate brand awareness and loyalty, hoping that in the future everybody will develop a sustainable textile consciousness.

3. Van der Grinten, B. Re-creatie in Rotterdam: sustainable recreation for Feijenoord:.

Degree: 2010, Delft University of Technology

Graduation project for the service of Sport and Recreation Rotterdam. Industrial Design Engineering Master Integrated Product Design. The research is based on the following defi nition of sustainability: Able to continue existing because of attributed value and adaptation to the energetic, material, ecological and social context. The research on the four contexts and values of Feijenoord has revealed these possibilities for sustainable recreation: • The energetic context offers wind, biomass, sun and tide as local energy sources. Effluents of the adjacent factory of Unilever can be converted into energy. Existing technology can be used to turn biological waste and CO2 into food. • The material context is being developed into the central recreation cluster of Feijenoord. The abandoned harbour allows for recreational use of water as an extension of public space. There are local waste materials that can be used in the design. • In the ecological context, water- and songbirds can benefit from a recreational facility that stimulates biodiversity. The north end of the harbour is suitable for an ecological shore. • The social context has the main opportunity that inhabitants are willing to invest in their surroundings. A park that is maintained with help of the community shows that people are committed as long as nothing is obligated. • The prevailing values in Feijenoord are conservative, seeking enjoyment and following tradition. A modern group of inhabitants is being attracted to Feijenoord, and they like challenge, experience, and self-realisation. The use value of the design has the highest priority but it should also have experience and narrative value. The context analysis led to the vision of sustainability as a natural phenomenon of prosperity; I want people to experience the retention and enjoyment of nature by adding value to the surroundings trough rest, re-creation and togetherness 2.0. From this vision, four recreational functions of the facility have been deduced: • a communal living room • a self-suffi cing food garden • a co-workshop • Fort Feijenoord These functions have been elaborated in five concepts. The chosen product is a fitness fountain which uses human power to purify or aerate water. It offers the possibility to add value to the environment trough an enjoyable activity. The product is designed to have a minimal environmental impact in production and disposal, and an eco-effective impact during use. A playground based on fitness fountains is a gift to its surroundings, in Feijenoord and other parks. Advisors/Committee Members: Brezet, J.C., Bakker, C.A., Van der Linden, G., Stroomer, E..
