Automated textile sorting systems
Global fiber production has doubled over the last 20 years and is expected to grow to 146 million metric tons by 2030. Through the different stages of textile production, a large portion of fiber, yarn, overstocked fabrics and even finished garments end up in waste. Post-consumer textile waste is also rapidly growing, with recyclable fibers worth USD 100 billion lost to waste management systems every year.
The fashion industry is estimated to be responsible for 10 percent of global carbon emissions. The recycling of post-industrial textile waste saves water and reduces the need for incineration and landfills. From fibers to trimmings and garnetts, textile production waste can be sorted and purified with automated sensor-based sorting systems. We enable the circularity of textiles for a more sustainable future.
