ONTARIO – Researchers at the University of Waterloo, in Canada, have developed a new grading system for textile waste to streamline sorting and promote circularity.

With it, the academics estimate that more than half of textile waste produced in the country is fit for reuse and almost a quarter for recycling.

Olaf Weber, a research chair and professor at the university, commented: “Consumers buy, use and dispose of new garments, which end up in the landfill, and less than one per cent of the materials are recycled. This new method is an important step to curbing our waste.”
