Meet Siptex – the-state-of-the-art game changer that turns rags into resources. Siptex is the world’s first, automated large-scale textile sorting plant, and is putting Sweden on the map as an innovator in the circular economy.Sign me up!
Every year in the EU, 4.3 million tonnes of textile end up as landfill or are incinerated. Siptex is a new link between textile collection and high-quality recycling, and turns mixed post-consumer textiles into high quality products. Siptex – Swedish Innovation Platform for Textile Sorting – is the result of research funded by Sweden’s Innovation Agency.
Welcome to an exciting event where we will share the results of our research and discuss topics such as the EU Strategy for sustainable and circular textiles, extended producer responsibility, how the fashion industry is adjusting to a more sustainable business model, present challenges, future opportunities and much more.

In the Siptex project, IVL and several other players are working to develop automated sorting for high-quality textile recycling. Siptex is now taking the next step and establishing the world's first automated textile sorting plant on an industrial scale. It is planned to open in Malmö in 2020.
The world's first large - scale plant for automatic textile sorting is now put in operation. At Sysav's facility in Malmö, a thirty meter long machine is in place. With a sorting capacity of 24,000 tonnes of textiles per year, it will revolutionize Swedish textile recycling and create new markets for textile waste.
