Welcome to Texperium

The Open Innovation Centre Texperium was established in 2010 as a non-profit foundation to raise textile recycling and bring textile recycling in the Netherlands to a higher level. Texperium is specialized in the technological area of mechanical textile recycling: sorting, shredding, and spinning of post-consumer textile materials.

The focus of Texperium is on mechanical recycling of non re-wearable post-consumer textiles, the so-called Flock and under-products, which now often go for incineration or very low value is reuse.

During the past 6 years we have made a modest contribute to a more sustainable textile industry in corporation with various industrial partners in the Netherlands and Europe.
