The presentation shows how Tailorlux, Recover and other actors used exact tracer fibre dosing and two major industrial trials to quantify fibres with different methods using markers. …. The presentation will focus on why the quantification of recycled fibres is not trivial and how it can be done efficiently. The presentation will tell the story of this project: Tailorlux implementing a tracer fibre dosing device in the shredding process of recover to quantify rececyled fibres in slivers, yarn and fabric. …

Making claims of recycled content becomes more and more important. Optical Fingerprinting can be used to determine the recycled content in fibres and yarns. Tailorlux and Recover have conducted a project to validate different methods to quantify tracer fibres. The method was validated by Eurofins and other third party members which can be disclosed at a later stage of this project.
