It is reported that globally, an estimated 92 million tonnes of textiles waste is created each year and the equivalent to a rubbish truck full of clothes ends up on landfill sites every second.

By 2030, we are expected as a whole to be discarding more than 134 million tonnes of textiles a year.

Last month, a new breakthrough  by Carbios will ultimately see vast quantities of polyester-based textiles, that might typically be sent to landfill feasibly recycled into plastic bottles.

Most fabrics  are complex combinations of fibres, fixtures and accessories. This proves a real challenge to sort, complicating the tasks of the manual labourers.

What are the automatic sorting technologies out there that can effectively sort textile blends ?

Fashion businesses striving to become more sustainable needs to invest in powerful supply chain transparency.

For the brands being able to demonstrate that at the end of production, the final product can be scanned to confirm it’s made from the original certified recycled materials is expected  and the role that blockchain technology can play in this will become increasingly important !

Following the success of the first Circular Zero Waste Textiles webinar, this webinar will delve into new developments including New recycling technologies that will be able to recycle textile blends at scale for the first time and reinventing the lifecycle of plastic and textile polymers by recycling textile waste to clear bottles !
