Leading the way...

Denmark leads the way in collecting post-consumer textile waste, and NewRetex is already sorting and processing open fibers for the European market.

Now, we're ready to extend our supply to the global market. Do you want a share in the future of textile circulation?

Data and traceability

At NewRetex, we secure all data on the textile waste we receive, so that we can provide documentation and traceability for the further path of the textile waste in the circular loop.

We believe that documentation and traceability are the cornerstones of a circular economy in textiles.

That is why we deliver full two-way traceability on all material we process. This means that at batch level we keep track of the submitted material from the time we receive it until we have delivered it to our customers.

In this way, we believe that we offer a transparent and reliable sorting and recycling process to our customers and business partners in the best possible way.

One of the most damaging industries to our environment

The textile industry is among the most environmentally damaging industries in the world, and the production of clothing and textiles currently occupies 4th place when it comes to consumption of raw materials and water. We would like to change that, but we cannot do it alone...

Together, we create value…

Textile waste must not be burned

In the past, textile waste was sent for incineration, but new legislation requires new solutions. You will find them at NewRetex.
From 1 July 2023, textile waste may no longer be sent for incineration, and therefore new solutions must be thought of - both at public institutions and private companies.

At NewRetex, we offer an efficient solution where the textile waste can be sorted so that it can then be broken down and reused.
Our sorting facility in Denmark meets the latest requirements for handling textile waste and ensures a high degree of utilization of the waste.

This is done in collaboration with other Danish and European actors who supplement our processes, so that the broken down textiles end up in new yarn and fabric, and are thus resurrected as new textiles.

A collaboration with many advantages

Hos NewRetex sørger vores automatiske sorteringsanlæg for at sortere tekstilaffaldet. Affaldet sorteres i forskellige kategorier, der forbedrer mulighederne for genanvendelse. 

You get full traceability and documentation of the degree of recycling

After sorting at our facility, we provide complete documentation for the degree of use. You can thus track how much of the delivered waste can be used for new fabric fibres, converted into other materials or must be destroyed.

You can meet the rules and requirements in Denmark and the EU

In 2025, all EU countries must ensure that clothing and textile waste is sorted and collected. In Denmark, the Danish Parliament has decided that Danish households must start sorting textile waste no later than 1 July 2023.

You contribute to creating a strong recycling sector for textiles

For many years, textile waste has been burned, but today it is possible to recycle a large part of the discarded fibers. However, future development requires investment in new and better methods to sort, break down and recycle textile waste. This development can be accelerated if more companies and public institutions take an active part in it.

The Process

Reception

NewRetex receives textile waste from all over Denmark. When we have received the waste, a 'pre-sorting' is carried out, where all salable textiles are removed for resale. This applies, among other things, to clothes that can be sold.

Sorting

The textile waste is distributed on a conveyor belt, where automated sensors identify the different waste categories. The robotic technology ensures uniform sorting of the textile waste.

Documentation

When the sorting is done, the customer is provided with relevant documentation for the degree of recycling of the textile waste.

Processing

The sorted materials are then sent on for processing: breaking down, separation of non-textiles and subsequent processing.

The future at NewRetex

We are continuously in dialogue with our partners within textile production in relation to creating the optimal material composition that can meet the manufacturers' needs.

We receive and handle large quantities of textiles and will scale up in the coming years from 10 tons per week to 40,000 tons annually in 2025. We process the received textiles mechanically on our fully automatic robotic plant.
