Edwin Keh: Groundbreaking innovations in textiles


Welcome to a brand-new episode of the New Horizons Podcast. You might not be familiar with Edwin Keh, but he stands as one of the most influential figures in the textile industry's sustainability landscape. If you're curious about the current state of affairs, then this podcast is just what you need! We became aware of Edwin Keh when we heard about the "Green Machine" – an innovative recycling facility that can separate polyester from cotton using pressure, heat, and water. However, Edwin Keh, CEO of Hong Kong RITA (Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel), inspires not only with recycling solutions. His institute is simultaneously researching 70-80 projects, including solutions for irrigation-free cotton cultivation and the filtration of microplastics using sound waves. Edwin and his scientists are primarily focused on bringing these solutions to the market quickly and scaling them to address the diverse challenges in the apparel industry. Our conversation with Edwin offers a completely new perspective on what is possible.
