On August 2, 2022, the Aachener Zeitung published an article about the "nAChhaltig angezogen" project, in which the CCE and the Regional Resilience Aachen are involved. The project focuses on the use of hemp in the textile industry.

The article highlights the advantages of hemp in comparison to cotton, such as its low water consumption. Additionally, the cultivation of hemp can strengthen the local economy and build upon the tradition of the textile industry in the Eifel region.

The Regional Resilience Aachen is working with the CCE on a sustainable concept in the textile industry, with the aim of connecting entrepreneurship and circular economy.
