– TCL has helped us get in touch with experienced people to push our idea forward. They helped us with legal questions, coachning and basically anything where we where lacking in experience, says at Adam Backman from Team ReGlove, one of the 2020-2021-teams.
A recyclable glove in an increasingly wasteful world
The ReGlove system produces a recyclable single-use protective glove, as a sustainable solution to the enormous waste streams caused by plastic disposable personal protective equipment (PPE). The system produces a glove made out of polyvinyl alcohol, a water-soluble polymer, that can easily be dissolved, sterilized, and remolded into new gloves. The solution is a machine that encompasses all of these steps, enabling an in-house recycling system.
