Procotex is proud to be a member of the European project Fibersort which is reflecting 100% our vision about how to promote the Circular Economy.
The Fibersort is a technology that automatically sorts large volumes of garments and finished products by fibre composition. This allows them to be recycled into new, high-quality textiles. 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.
Procotex is proud to announce its participation at the European project URBANREC.
Urbanrec project aims to implement an eco-innovative and integral bulky waste management system. One of the main goals is to reduce up to 50% of the total bulky waste landfilled at local level.
The technologies developed in Urbanrec will contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions of about a 20%.
Procotex will perform tests on the recovered fibers and textiles coming from post-consumer waste (mattress, carpets, furniture). Its goal is to explore different market roads for the final product such as : Mattress recovering, Nonwoven industry, insulation, filtration, plastic reinforcement…

Procotex-Masters in textile recycling
Nowadays, sustainability is not just a philosophy but also a way of living and to assure a sustainable future. In our society, recyclability of waste has become little by little a legal as well as a moral obligation. So why would you pay more for first grade fibers, if you can obtain the same benefits with cheaper recycled fibers?
Masters in flax, recycled natural, synthetic and technical fibres. This is how Procotex Corporation defines itself. The Belgium-headquartered company can deliver a wide range of environment-friendly solutions. Let’s see with Bruno Douchy, Sales Director of Procotex, what his company’s portfolio has to offer to composites.
Procotex can now serve you even better through EDI!
What is EDI?
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the electronic exchange of structured data via standardized message formats from one application to another with minimum manual intervention. An EDI System sends data from an internal system within seconds to the system of a trading partner.
Every day tons of paper documents like Orders, Invoices, Item Catalogues, Market Data etc. are captured manually and exchanged using traditional methods (Mail, Fax, e-mail).These traditional methods of communications (manual creation, printing, enveloping, sending via mail, and manual capturing at the recipient) offer enormous potential for improvements. In these traditional ways, the information passes many interfaces and people, going from company A to company B. Looking at this process in detail, you can identify that the exchange of unstructured data is creating lots of manual efforts and is also very risky and error-prone.
A piece of software – called EDI Converter – converts the data from the internal application into a standardized message format, so that it can be sent to Trading Partners. Inbound messages in standardized formats are converted by the EDI Converter into the Inhouse format and processed by the internal application. Small or medium sized companies can communicate with any business partner in this way as well. By automating the information exchange, manual exchange or creation processes are avoided, reducing time and costs
