This report is a final report of Telaketju 2 public research within a Business Finland funded project, which is the main part of the second phase of Telaketju activities. This project was composed of confidential company projects and public research. It aimed at building business from the circular economy of textiles in Finland. The scope of the project included novel circular economy business models aiming for better material efficiency and increased material and product life, and business related to textile recycling.
