The Resource Action Fund, launched by the UK’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) in May, will pile investment totaling 4.7 mn pounds into two ambitious projects in a bid to transform the reprocessing and recycling capabilities of textiles and plastics. Set to be managed by the Sustainable Clothing Action Plan’s Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), grants will be available across the two sectors with applicants able to apply for 200,000 pounds to 1m pounds in total. The winning applicants will be those thought to have ideas that could boost the infrastructure for material reprocessing in the UK.
