Unlocking the value of textile waste
The ‘holy grail’ for sustainability in textiles and fashion
“What we’ve been looking for’: How Australian start-up BlockTexx is turning discarded clothes into raw, commodity-level plastic”
"While countless industry executives will continue to cite the circular economy in conference speeches, it is the work of companies such as BlockTexx which is transforming that rhetoric from hollow green wash into a viable solution."
“a holy grail ... for the industry and the planet that will help close the loop between resource-intensive fabric production and fast-growing piles of textile waste.”
“What the BlockTexx solution will enable us to do is send those items we can’t reuse back through the supply chain to be turned into their raw materials.”
What we do
- Separation of fibre technology
BlockTexx owns proprietary technology that separates polyester and cotton materials such as clothes, sheets and towels of any colour or condition back into their high value raw materials of PET and Cellulose for reuse as new products for all industries.
The recovered PET is polymerised to create virgin-quality S.O.F.T.™ branded rPET plastic pellets and polyester fibre suitable for use in textiles, packaging, building products.
The recovered cellulose is processed to create S.O.F.T.™ branded cellulose powder for use in many industries such as textile, pharmaceutical and food.
BlockTexx is leading a global movement toward a circular economy for our customers and production partners, by developing planet focussed solutions that divert textile waste from landfill and into sustainable products.
