Towards the economy of material resources: reuse and recycling of textiles.
In the textile and clothing industry a circular economy approach entails the necessity of a planning for re-use and recycling of fibers and textiles. The related industrial aspects require:

  • quality and quantity recognition of both virgin fibers and recycled fibers composing a textile article,
  • traceability of materials throughout the process,
  • validation checks and inspection of cleaning, sanitization and decontamination, in case of reuse,
  • study for the use and related treatment processes of textile scraps into non-textile applications.
