The Fibersort project aims at realising the widespread implementation of the automated sorting technology by validating it as a key value adding innovation to enable textile-to-textile recycling.
While the challenges and opportunities of used textiles are increasingly in the spotlight of governments, industry, and civil society, considerable system changes are required to transition towards a circular economy for textiles. Throughout this report, policy recommendations are formulated showing the legislative, economic and soft instruments that regional, national and the European governments have at their disposal to allow the Fibersort, as well as other automated sorting technologies, to live up to their full potential.
We are actively seeking textile collectors and sorters, recycling technologies, brands and retailers, and other circular textiles projects to join our team of collaborators. Be part of the change here.
