SIPTex – Swedish Innovation Platform for Textile sorting

SIPTex is a Swedish research project that will test and evaluate automated textile sorting by building and operating a pilot facility for 12 months (in Sweden). The recognition and sorting equipment is based on near-infrared (NIR) technology. The project contributes to resource efficiency and closing textile loops by matching customers’ quality requirements with fast and highly accurate sorting technology.

Boer Group is a partner and we sort and provide test material to the pilot plant and support in the evaluation process.

Period of the project: 01.06.2016 – 31.08.2018

Funded by: Sweden’s innovation agency, Vinnova. Vinnova is a Swedish government agency working under the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation and acts as the national contact agency for the EU Framework Programme for R&D.
