Current Call for Innovation

INNO+ is a structuring networking approach, offering companies the opportunity to launch a call for innovation aimed at resolving environmental issues. The current call for innovation brings together two issues in the textile sector.

Our first call for innovation addresses the issue of recycling textile offcuts, looking for innovative approaches to recycling high-quality textile scraps. Solutions should encourage reuse, recycling and waste reduction in this production chain. (more information below)

Our second call for innovation tackles the filtration of microplastics in water. Microplastics represent a serious problem due to its impact on wildlife and its potential repercussions on human health. Small-scale solutions exist, but need to be adjusted to Daoust Eco’s industrial operating parameters to help them reduce their environmental impact. (more information below)
