  • Define areas to address for progress
  • Release findings for broad industry use
  
Step 2: Advance with real-world testing
  • Engage industry, recycle post-consumer textiles
  • Test results and address barriers (performance, chemistry)
  • Incorporate pilot outputs into supply chain
Outcomes
  • Level up industry knowledge
