Boer Group is member of Circle Economy

The mission of this organization is to accelerate the practical and scalable implementation of the circular economy; under this roof, several programmes and tools are initiated where we partly be engaged like:

“Circle Market”

is a case study to develop an online trading platform for textiles in recycling qualities and enable the efficient creation of a circular supply chain. Implementing standard grades and terminology within this system enables feedstock supply and recycling technologies to scale at the same pace.

“Fibersort”

The Fibersort is a technology that automatically sorts large volumes of mixed post-consumer textiles by fibre type. Once sorted, these materials become reliable, consistent input materials for high value textile to textile recyclers. High value recycling technologies can transition low value waste into new, high value textiles, and they are a critical link in the circular supply chain. Therefore, the Fibersort is a key technology that will enable textile resources to cycle repeatedly through the supply chain. Once commercialized, it will create a tipping point for a new, circular textile industry.

Period of the project: 01.09.2016 – 31.08.2019
