TUBINGAL® RISE | First textile softener based on recycled silicones

Following the circular economy model, end-of-life silicone products are recycled and with TUBINGAL® RISE converted into a new softener. By doing this, the CHT Group is supporting the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) of the United Nations and underlining its own commitment to sustainability.

Together with TUBINGAL® RISE to the circular economy

The transformation from a linear economy to a circular economy is a vital process that requires cross-industry collaboration.

In the past, production methods for manufacturing silicone fabric softeners were based entirely on linear concepts. With the development and production of TUBINGAL® RISE (Recycled Innovative Silicone Emulsion), the world’s first fabric softener made of more than 60% recycled and reprocessed silicone waste and renewable bio-based emulsifiers has now been made available to the market. The quality of this product is identical to a silicone softener made of primary raw materials.

TUBINGAL® RISE also meets the wide-ranging requirements for textile standards as bluesign®, ZDHC and GOTS. It also allows for Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX.

One important characteristic of this recycled softener is that it has been specially designed to be suitable for the production of GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified textile products. 

TUBINGAL® RISE is a perfect match to recycled materials to realize a fully integrated recycling concept.
