Decarbonize your apparel brand with Sixone’s circular materials

Sixone transforms post-consumer polyester-blended textiles from landfill waste into high-quality polyester pellets.

The Challenge with Recycling Textiles

Blended textiles are chemically complex

Clothing primarily consists of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) blended with fibers, chemical additives, dyes and performance finishes to achieve form, function, and feel.

Current industrialized recycling solutions lack the capability to recycle blended textiles, which are chemically complex.

Fundamental materials science innovations are needed to enable true circularity of these chemical blends.

Only 1% of textile waste is currently recycled

We recycle the other 99%

Sixone’s artificial intelligence and data-enabled technology selectively extracts polyester from blended textile waste to efficiently produce PET pellets for textile manufacturing.

Validated by manufacturers

The performance of Sixone’s circularly recycled polyester is on par with the quality of polyester derived from virgin fossil fuels and recycled plastic bottles, and is a drop-in alternative for textile manufacturers.

Design freely

The future of high-performance apparel requires the blending of different fibers. We navigate the intricacies of recycling blended textiles, empowering brands to design for performance and functionality.

Powerhouse in understanding chemistries

Our growing chemical fingerprint database on complex fabrics is expanding the limits of blended textile recycling.
