Advanced SWIR Spectroscopy for Next-Generation Fabric Identification

Authors Marie-Christine Ferland


Textile sorting is increasingly becoming a multifaceted challenge that requires accurate material classification. The fashion industry's reliance on non-biodegradable synthetic fibers, mainly due to their versatility and cost-efficiency, introduces a unique challenge for its recyclability. Complicating matters further, the prevalence of blended fabrics, incorporating both natural and synthetic fibers, requires intricate separation during the recycling process. Treatments with dyes, chemicals, and finishes, add yet another layer of difficulty for the reuse of these materials.

This white paper will explore the cutting-edge solutions and technologies that play a pivotal role in overcoming the challenges set by the intricate world of textile sorting, while also promoting sustainable practices within the textile industry.
