Fibrous Waste and Recycling
Of growing interest in the textile industry is recycling textile waste products, whether through reusing clothing or other fabrics, or by processing them into recycled yarn or other industrial or consumer grade goods. Reclamation mills will grade incoming textile waste by color and composition, and sort them for further processing. Some fabrics are cut into cleaning cloths and other commercial or industrial applications. In certain other cases, colored textiles are reused without further dyeing. This reduces environmental impact and consumption of industrial colorants. Textile waste is shredded into “shoddy” fibers to be blended with other similar fibers. These fibers are then carded to clean and mix the fibers before their use in weaving or other industrial or commercial applications. Certain textile waste products are “flocked,” or compressed, to make items such as automobile insulation, speaker cones, furniture padding, and roofing felt.
For other textile waste such as synthetic polymers, instead of being shredded, the fabrics are cut into small pieces, after buttons, zippers, and other foreign materials are removed. Then the shredded fabrics are compressed into granules which are processed into chips, which can then be used to spin new synthetic fibers. In this way, even synthetic textile wastes can be recycled into new consumer goods. Examples of synthetic polymers of this sort offered by WorldWiseUSA.com are:
