Ahead of their Ligue 1 match against Lyon, the players of Olympique de Marseille wore jerseys that were made as part of PUMA’s innovative recycling project RE:JERSEY.
The RE:JERSEY shirts worn ahead of Sunday’s game are made with 75% repurposed football jerseys. The remaining 25% comes from SEAQUAL ® MARINE PLASTIC1. The aim of the project is to reduce waste and pave the way towards more circular production models in the future.
While PUMA’s football kits on the market today are already made from 100% recycled polyester, PUMA trials garment-to-garment recycling as part of the RE:JERSEY project. In the recycling process used for RE:JERSEY , even old garments that feature logos, embroideries and club badges can be used, as the material is chemically broken down into its main components (depolymerization). Colors are then filtered out and the material is chemically put back together to create a yarn (repolymerization) that has the same performance characteristics as virgin polyester
“We are very glad that Olympique de Marseille has chosen to partner with us in this exciting sustainability project,” said Matthias Baeumer, General Manager BU Teamsport at PUMA. “Through projects such as RE:JERSEY, we are finding ways to take more responsibility when it comes to the end of life of our products.”
Olympique de Marseille will set up collection bins in the fan store at the Orange Vélodrome, so fans can bring back their old polyester items, which will become a part of the RE:JERSEY project.

REPLY: "Everything can become a digital asset" Is the Paradigm Resulting From Reply's ‘Digital Assets Trends’ Research23.3.2023 09:00:00 CET | Press release
The digital asset market is growing exponentially. Thanks to blockchain technology and the new generation of operators using tokenization platforms, it is possible to turn everything that can be digitally archived into a digital asset, with recognised value and established ownership. This is what emerges from Reply's new ‘Digital Assets Trends’ research, based on the Reply SONAR platform. By analysing industry studies, scientific articles, patents, documents, and B2B content published in the last year, and integrating concrete experiences from Reply's clients, the study examines the main trends related to digital assets. Tokenization is the first step to bringing real-world assets and financial instruments onto the blockchain, representing an opportunity especially for those of an illiquid nature (e.g., high-value art, public infrastructure, private equity). The main advantages of tokens include the construction of a peer-to-peer network without intermediaries that also serves as a dec
European Mainframes Are Getting a Makeover23.3.2023 09:00:00 CET | Press release

Although many companies still depend on them for reliability, availability and security, mainframes can be an albatross when it comes to innovation, the report says. Many European enterprises find they are unable to respond rapidly to the deployment of new or updated products. Enterprises that are still running mainframes recognize the need to update their le
