How to Recycle Textile Waste



Common textile wastes mainly include discarded yarns, fiber fragments, used fabrics, fabric trimmings, and wastewater and wastes generated during the printing and dyeing process. These wastes are produced in large quantities during the textile production process and will cause pollution to the environment if not properly handled. Through effective recycling, these wastes can be transformed into recycled fibers, nonwovens or other valuable materials.

Recycling Value

Resource conservation: Recycling textile waste reduces the need for new raw materials, thus conserving large amounts of natural resources, such as cotton, wool and chemical fibers. These resources are finite and recycling helps to extend their life and reduce waste.

Textile waste recycling can be converted into recycled fibers, nonwovens, fillers, etc. These recycled materials have a wide range of applications, such as home furnishings, automotive interiors, and packaging materials. Through recycling, enterprises can reduce production costs and improve economic efficiency.

Recycling Process

Collection of textile waste, including waste fibers, waste yarns, and waste fabrics.
Preliminary cleaning of waste materials to remove oil, dust and other impurities.
Use specialized crushing equipment, such as shredders, to crush the textile waste.
Depending on the type and use of the waste material, select the appropriate crushing method and equipment parameters to obtain the desired size of fiber fragments.
Use fiber separation equipment, such as airflow separators or mechanical separators, to separate fibers of different materials.
Use drying equipment to dry the fibers for subsequent processing and use.

Advantages of mechanical recycling

Improve recycling efficiency: fast cutting of waste fabrics saves labor, shortens processing time and improves overall recycling efficiency.
Reduce environmental pollution: Effective treatment of waste fabrics reduces environmental pollution caused by direct disposal and facilitates subsequent recycling and reuse.
Resource reuse: the shredded waste can be used as raw materials for renewable resources, improving resource utilization and realizing recycling.
Technical features: adaptable, capable of handling textile waste of different materials and thicknesses; sturdy structure and high durability.
