Bins for Textile

Textile

Old textiles are collected separately and can be used in two ways: either as second-hand clothes that can be reused straight away or as material for making cleaning rags for example or mattress stuffing. Textiles, however, covers a much wider sector than clothes and also includes carpet residue, yarn waste etc.

What happens with Textile

First of all we check to see whether the material can be reused or recycled. The rest of this waste has a high calorific value. Textile residue is assessed at our Dottignies plant. After having been ground down and turned into pellets, textile waste becomes an alternative fuel for furnaces, cement kilns, blast furnaces and power plants.
