Leder storskalig textilåtervinning i Europa till minskad klimatpåverkan? : En konsekvens-LCA (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Through an LCA that systematically considers uncertainties, we found a 92% probability that large-scale textile recycling in the EU reduces climate impact. The reduction is just over 1% of textile products' climate impact, so other measures are needed to tackle the climate challenge of textiles.

A sensitivity analysis shows what needs to be accounted for to ensure a reduced climate impact, e.g., recycling with low climate impact and a high replacement of the production of primary fibers.

Abstract [sv]

Genom en LCA som systematiskt beaktar osäkerheter, fann vi att det är 92 % sannolikhet att storskalig textilåtervinning i EU år 2035 minskar klimatpåverkan. Genomsnittliga minskningen är drygt 1% av textilprodukters klimatpåverkan, så andra åtgärder behövs för att tackla textilindustrins klimatutmaning.

En känslighetsanalys visar vad som behöver beaktas för att säkerställa minskad klimatpåverkan, t. ex. återvinning med låg klimatpåverkan och att produktion av primära fibrer faktiskt ersätts.
