Swatchloop creates a digital passport to waste for more efficient recycling of textile waste and offers smart recommendations to ensure correct sorting and collaboration with artificial intelligence. It also provides data analytics with the ability to track all recycling processes from the recycling company to the end consumer in a sustainable and transparent way.
The Industry's Facts
The textile industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. About 100 billion textile products are produced every year and the amount of water used to produce a cotton t-shirt is about 2700 liters. By 2050, it is estimated that the textile industry alone will consume 26% of the carbon budget. While 95% of textile waste is recyclable, only 15% is recycled, and only 1% of this is efficiently recycled from textile to textile.
In the textile sector, the lack of proper sorting of waste at the source negatively affects recycling processes. Lack of sorting at the source causes the recycling processes to be prolonged and costs to increase by sorting mixed wastes by hand and eye. Furthermore, as a result of sorting by conventional methods, valuable and worthless wastes cannot be accurately distinguished. This problem leads to inefficient use of resources by reducing the quality of raw materials along with low waste quality. For the textile industry to address these issues, a more sustainable and efficient approach needs to be adopted.
