VEGEA TEXTILE PROJECT

 

VEGEA is a start-up developing and engineering technologies and processes based on biomass and in particular on the valorization of agroindusry by-products by fostering the use of renewable sources in alternative to fossil sources.

 

We use know-how in order to improve the agro-industry waste management by developing technologies that are able to promote Its recovery rather than disposal.

 

Vegea textile project was born in 2016 for the production of bio-based technical textiles from vegetal raw materials and winemaking by-products: grape marc, a fully vegetal raw material consisting of grape skins, seeds and stalks that remain after crushing the grapes during wine production.

We give grape marc a new added-value thus.

 

The aim is to produce bio-based materials to be used in fashion & design, automotive & transportation and packaging.
