The rising demand for 100% recycled textiles

The economy is facing a rising demand for greater circularity and sustainability emphasized by government laws and public pressure regarding the Co2-footprint and sustainability reporting until 2030. Swinsol AG and Säntis Textiles have recognized the arising opportunity to make an impact in the textile industry years ago. Slowly but steadily, the economy is changing towards the needed recovering process of textiles. Through innovative technologies, a second and third lifecycle for textiles is made possible. With the arising demands for sustainability, Swinsol AG and Säntis Textiles are already positioned to offer services and provide manufacturing processes for recycled textiles around the world.

 

2 Years of success in spinning recycled textiles

It has two years, since Swinsol AG and Säntis Textiles decided that it is time to invent a solution and spin 100% recycled yarn for the first time. Säntis Textiles is a extraordinary textile sourcing company focusing on the sustainable sourcing and production of recycled yarn. The system achieves up to Ne30 with 100% recycled cotton, including core yarns for denim. Those yarns are running commercially since more than 2 years at Kipas spinning plants in Türkiye. Prior to the partnership, hardly any system could spin the short fibres of the recycled yarns. Both companies teamed up and approached the challenge and never looked back. The mechanical compact system “Recompact” manufactured by Swinsol has the right fit and innovative geometry to spin 100% recycled yarns and even produce excellent and high quality yarn from the short fibers that are recovered from textile waste.

 

Recompact 3.T superperformance for recycled fibers and circularity

The reason for the great success regarding the spinning of recycled fibers is made possible by the Recompact Unit which has a unique geometry tailored to spin all kinds of yarns and especially short staple recycled yarns. The fibres are shorter then the conventional yarn. Recompact demonstrates a competitive edge over competitor systems, who mostly cannot successfully produce yarn of recycled textile fibres due to having difficulties with yarn values and characteristics. Recompact spins these yarns with the highest precision up to count Ne30. The yarn is RCO100 certified and fullfills the OEKO-TEX 100 standards. It has now been proven for one year at several esteemed spinning mills that Recompact is the best option when it comes to future demand and spinning recycled fibres.
