Textile recycling refers to a process of reprocessing and reusing scraps, old clothing, and fibrous waste materials. It offers various economic and environmental benefits, such as optimum consumption of water and energy, minimizing dependence on virgin fibers and chemical dyes, and reducing water and land pollution. It is extensively being used across Europe as it is an effective method for sustainable development.
The increasing consciousness among individuals about reusing and recycling old clothes on account of rising environmental concerns represents one of the primary factors strengthening the growth of the market in Europe. Moreover, various recycling companies are taking initiatives such as introducing door-to-door pickup programs. This, in confluence with automation in the recycled textile industry, is catalyzing the demand for textile recycling in the region. Apart from this, the European Commission recently launched Textile for Textile (T4T), an eco-friendly initiative that has resulted in the introduction of near-infrared (NIR)-spectroscopy technology to perform automated sorting applications. Furthermore, the escalating demand for eco-clothes that are made up of recycled textiles, plastics, and other organic raw materials is helping in waste reduction and impelling the market growth.
