Textiles dominate Canadian grants to
solve the problem of plastic waste

T

hrough the Innovative Solutions Canada program, four Canadian companies have
been awarded grants to develop solutions to address plastic waste, with three of
the four solutions involving textiles.
With a plan to achieve zero plastic waste by 2030, including a ban on certain harmful
single-use plastics, the Canadian government is awarding small and medium-sized
Canadian companies up to $150,000 each toward developing their solutions.
The three companies with textile-related projects receiving funding in the Canadian
Plastics Innovation Challenges are:
* CACITH Inc. (Tengiva), in Montréal, Quebec. CACITH is creating a network of recyclers
to quantify textile waste and find new markets for otherwise wasted materials.
* Singular Solutions Inc., in North York, Ontario. Singular Solutions is developing a
biosustainable additive that will cause plastic textile waste to biodegrade in longterm-composting landfill facilities.
* Met-Tech Inc., in Burlington, Ontario. Met-Tech is developing a low-cost process
to recycle more textile waste such as clothing.

Plastic litter pollutes rivers, lakes and
oceans, harming wildlife and generating
macro and microplastics (pictured).
