Sweden to develop automated textile sorting plant

Written by John Mowbray

STOCKHOLM - New Swedish research claims that automated sorting technology has the ability to significantly increase the recycling of textiles. Researchers looked at the potential for automated sorting in order to help address a situation whereby each year, 4.3 million tonnes of textile waste in the EU is landfilled or incinerated. The automated sorting of textiles would make it possible, according to the research, to manage large streams of textiles and at the same time produce sorted textiles that are better adapted to different recycling.
