tracking the sorting process


At NewRetex, we prioritize transparency and traceability in every step of our process. From the moment we receive discarded textiles the batch is weighed and registered under the respective customer number, allowing us to track it throughout our sorting process, ensuring complete traceability. 

Our automatic sorting follows with detailed scanning and registration of each piece, categorizing it into one of the 31 fractions based on material type, composition, color and fabric type. These fractions are then pressed and baled for efficient recycling, and the batch number pointing back to the customer is registered on the bale.

Our commitment to traceability extends to providing our customers with comprehensive reports, leveraging the data collected during our process. This data allows us to offer insights into the content and recycling possibilities of the materials, empowering our partners with knowledge and transparency.
By employing NIR spectroscopy for material identification and utilizing machine learning to establish sorting boundaries, we achieve a high level of precision. This ensures that our sorted materials align with known compositions and are categorized accurately.

In essence, NewRetex's approach to traceability is rooted in a dedication to transparency and providing our partners with the information they need to make informed decisions in contributing to a circular economy.
