China has said that by 2025 it plans to recycle 25% of all its textile waste – in addition to increasing its recycled fibre output (2 million tonnes). The move is seen as a part of country’s efforts to become carbon neutral by 2060. As per a document jointly released by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Ministry of Commerce, the country plans increase its recycling capability and have a waste textile recycling system initially established by 2025. Reportedly, by 2030, China plans to have a complete system that will attain a recycling rate of 30 per cent for waste textiles and produce 3 million tonnes of recycled fibre. Back in 2020, China had produced around 22 million tonnes of textile waste, and had a recycling rate of around 20 per cent.
