Closing the loop in the textiles industry


To optimise (re)use of material and natural resources in NWE

Project Summary

The Fibersort is an automated sorting technology that detects and sort post consumer textile waste based on their fiber composition. This will ensure that large volumes of textile waste is sorted based on fiber composition. The sorted textile will serve as input for (high value) textile recyclers that need specific fiber compositions. Fibersort will therefore be able to ensure that enough post consumer textiles is sorted for high value textile to textile recycling methods like the one Worn Again and Procotex offer. The ultimate objective of the Fibersort project is to realise widespread implementation of the technology, and create a tipping point for a closed loop textiles industry.
