“With Solution and Availability of Knowledge with Means, Why Look Backward?”
To recycle the waste textile is not easy, but with Recycling Fibers, we have the plant designed to address the vast amount of waste heading to landfills.
We at Recycling Fibers are in the work of recycling waste textiles by bringing effectiveness within the recycling process. We understand not all recycling systems within the textile industry can be that effective. We also know that it can be environmentally harmful, just like the production of raw fabrics. This is why we have combined research and tried to close the loop by diverting the waste textiles for recycling rather than the allowing it to reach the landfills where it takes a lot of time to decompose.
Why just talk and not act on waste textiles?
We talk, and we think but do not act. This is where we lack it can be changed by turning the recycled waste textiles into something valuable with simple technological and other methods to handle the hybrid fabrics. With the help of simple but valuable processes, we at Recycling Fibers are trying to solve the environmental issues and bring in more sustainability. It is an opportunity to do better, and that is really important for managing the large waste textiles and the textile companies.
“With Opportunity in Hand, We Are Trying to Turn Waste Textile into Value”
The waste textile generation is quite problematic as the incineration and the landfills, both inside and outside a specific country, they are the primary end destination. It brings in varied negative consequences for the environment and the people. However, a significant transformation does lie ahead, and it can create a large and the sustainable newer industry which can easily turn the waste into some value.
There are various ways to address the waste issues, including reduction of overconsumption or overproduction, designing of the products for increased circularity, and extension of the product lifetime. One such best way is fiber-to-fiber recycling. It helps to turn the textile waste into new fibers, which can be easily used for creating the new clothes or any other kind of textile products. It comes with fast-paced innovation and the race toward the scale. There are technologies established like mechanical recycling of pure cotton, however, with further intense research and development, more can be brought in, and it can help to manage the waste textile.
From scanning to sorting and bringing in relevant input requirements, all can be managed with the right technology on time. There is still a lot to develop, but to reach its full potential, efforts are being made by Recycling Fibers and other organizations to the best to bring in change and to bring an improvement within the output quality.
As per the estimates, 70% of the waste textile can be recycled using fiber-to-fiber, and we are trying our best to help be a part of it and the other solutions to protect the environment. We are also trying to add up more value for all by overcoming the barriers and creating a better value chain that can lead us towards the additional value creation.
Recyclable Waste Textiles come with Advantages
Some of the environmental advantages of Recyclable waste textiles are,
Landfill space need is reduced as the synthetic fibers doesn’t decompose, and the natural fibers emit the greenhouse gases.
- The use of virgin fibers is avoided.
- The energy and water usage reduction.
- Pollution is prevented.
- There comes in a decrease in color demand.
Opportunity to be captured needs innovation and collaboration
Unless otherwise innovation can be combined with collaboration, opportunity can’t reach a favorable state. It needs major actions, and some of them are,
Critical Scale- It is needed to provide a sufficient amount of feedstock for necessary technologies and for allowing the tech to operate at a scale.
Collaborations- Challenges can be solved better collaboratively. There is a requirement for all to come together in an unprecedented manner for engaging in a high operational joint effort for overcoming barriers to the scale.
Transition Funding- Even though the textile recycling industry can, after being matured and scaled, become profitable and self-standing, there is a requirement for transition funding in the near term. With proper public-private solutions, much-needed changes can be brought in.
Investments- Sufficient amount of economic value is realizable for making up for the required amount of risk. The private investors can therefore lead the journey by taking the initiative for financing the building out of the value chain.
Public sector push- Public sector institutions leaders can help in driving textile recycling. Some measures include driving up the collection rate, limiting unsorted textile waste export, creating a harmonized framework for an increased circularity, and the other initiatives.
