Circular Economy Pilots, Textile value chains in Egypt

In the framework of the SwitchMed initiative, UNIDO implemented Circular Textile value chains pilot projects aimed to stimulate the creation of new, greater business opportunities and decent employment while reducing the environmental footprint of existing economic activities in the Southern Mediterranean. In a second phase, SwitchMed II will build upon the results in order to further support and scale up the transition towards Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) practices, which contribute to a green and circular economy in the region. To this end, the programme used an integrated and comprehensive approach targeting and involving different actors, thereby addressing the transition at various levels.
CSIL experts conducted a feasibility study for an investment in chemical recycling technologies for textile waste in Egypt and presented the study findings during a stakeholder engagement event held in Cairo. The study aimed to assess the different aspects and conditions that ensure that such an investment is viable from a financial and commercial point of view.
