Siptex WP5 report: Life cycle assessment of textile recycling products

This report presents a life cycle assessment (LCA) of recycling products from the automated textile-sorting plant Siptex in Malmö, Sweden.

The recycling products are sorted fractions of cotton, polyester, and wool. The LCA aims to increase knowledge of the environmental performance of the Siptex plant, in terms of reducing the incineration of textile waste and providing a new source of material to the textile industry.

The three recycling products are assessed by studying four garments made of the recycling products and comparing these to garments made of primary material.
