What is the social or environmental issue being addressed?

Sortile provides technology to textile sorters so that they can identify the fiber composition of clothing and sell it to fiber-to-fiber recyclers. This allows sorters to increase diversion rates for textile waste. Every ton of textiles sorted for the recycling market reduces in 3.3 tons GHG emissions.

Innovation:

Sortile's initial product is a small, low-cost, device that uses NIR spectroscopy and machine learning to accurately identify the fiber composition of a given item. We also provide data analytics and management services to the textile recycling industry.
