Birgit Stubbe, Stijn Van Vrekhem, Sofie Huysman, Rémi Tilkin, Isabel De Schrijver, Myriam Vanneste reviewed the existing textile recycling technologies, their current state (commercially available, in development or in research phase) and prognosis. This white paper will not only provide textile companies with information on textile recycling processes, but also on facilitating technologies for sorting and disintegration of textile products as well as virtual platforms that connect stakeholders and inform consumers. 

The eventual goal of this work is to provide relevant information that helps textile companies take action and transform to a circular model.
