Smartex plays an important role in waste reduction through the Textile Manufacturing process.
It is not about recycling or reusing, it’s about avoiding textile waste
The Fashion Industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world, affecting a plethora of ecosystems and compromising our planet. It’s our responsibility to take care of our resources and collaborate with an industry with less waste.
Since the defective production is detected and avoided from the very beginning of the process, there is no need to spend raw material, water, energy, and time on finishing the textile materials.
30% of total textile production is wasted, up to 5% due to defective production.
33$ Billion lost every year due to textile defects.
>80% of all textile defects produced in knitting or weaving stage, but are only detected later in the process.
Many defects are almost invisible to the human eye and proceed into the textile chain.
Final garments become garbage, affecting companies gross margins, retail prices, and the environment.
Inspectors work day and night looking for textile defects but not avoiding them.
Let’s work together towards a sustainable world
Litres of water saved
Many defective fabrics is produced during the knitting stage, and it is not inspected. Most of the times these textile rolls proceed to the dyeing & finishing stage, wasting water and many other resources. This is avoided by Smartex by intervening directly in the very first moment, avoiding defective production.
Kg of CO2 saved
There are several resources needed to produce & finish the textile roll. Natural gas to generate heat, machinery electricity and compressed air are the main energy consumers in textile factories. If these resources are spent on top of defective fabrics, that represents a considerable waste of energy, and therefore, kgs of CO2 too.

Meters of fabrics saved
Many defects are periodic and repeatable.
Once a periodic defect starts being produced, it’s probable to damage the rest of the textile roll. Smartex provides a proper intervention in the manufacturing line, avoiding waste of defective fabrics.
