Eurofins Textile Testing Spain, a major player in analytical testing worldwide, and Tailorlux, a Germany- based full-service provider for product authenticity, have signed an agreement to explore business synergies in the textile and apparel market. Tailorlux has developed a system that can automatically verify the recycled content of a textile. In times of ambitious climate goals, carbon offset and scarce resources, the digital verification of material becomes a key element.
Tailorlux will ramp up a system to automatically verify the recycled content in a spinning mill. This online verification and the machine to machine elements pave the way for innovative solutions like distributed ledgers or “green KPIs”. Recycled content can be verified and quantified online and during production to create tokens for digital transactions of yarn.
Eurofins is the first mover to explore this new way of textile transparency with complementary lab-services and audits of spinning mills which participate in this program. Tailorlux customers will benefit from the global footprint of Eurofins by being able to send samples to laboratories of Eurofins and check for the tracer of Tailorlux.
