Recycling &

Circular economy, cradle-2-cradle or circularity are the buzzwords of current product developments and therefore no longer visions of the future, but an important part of the economy. With its solution, Tailorlux has found a cross-sector approach to always being able to check where the individual components come from, starting with the cultivation of the raw materials all the way to the finished product. In this way, Tailorlux paves the road for its customers to integrate the concept of recycling and circularity into everyday work processes.


So that you really close the circle 

we make your products ready for sorting. 

Those who live extended product responsibility also think about the recycling of their products. Many projects, especially in Europe, are linked to all stakeholders in the value chain and are tackling this complex issue. In doing so, one quickly comes up against the limits of sorting in non-homogeneous product streams. The increasing complexity as well as unrealistic hardware requirements of existing sorting systems create major challenges for companies. Tailorlux has developed a solution that also makes your product detectable for commercially available sorting technology. The standard technology in this industry is the NIR camera, which can distinguish material classes.

Together with our partner Unisort/Steinert, Tailorlux teaches this camera to recognise your product and thus contribute to a pure raw material recycling. You have planned your own take-back? No problem, the proven inline technology recognises individual product markings in fractions of a second.

Long lasting product marking

So that circularity does not remain a buzz word in your company 

Tailorlux relies on a solution that survives any product life cycle.

Tailorlux shows a new way in circularity with its invisible marking solution, bringing numerous advantages for you:

  • Transparent supply chains promote the credibility of your company
  • Thanks to complete traceability, it is possible to reduce resource consumption and negative environmental impacts
  • With Tailorlux technology, you advance the purposes of the Circular Economy Act to conserve natural resources and promote the protection of people and the environment in the generation and management of waste
  • Few inline sensors ensure that the marking can always be reliably detected both during production and in the sorting process

Product marking

So that plastics no longer remain part of the problem 

but rather become a significant part of the solution.  

Polymers, such as PET, are often unfairly demonised materials associated with images of plastic waste in the world’s oceans and microplastics. Yet recyclable plastics can actually be a big part of the solution rather than the problem. Innovative packaging design combined with Tailorlux labelling, for example, can help distinguish and recover food-grade PET from other PET waste in the sorting process – in line with a desired circularity.

In a project for critical HDPE packaging in household waste, Tailorlux has already proven that the marking is detected by an NIR camera in a dynamic sorting process.

Tailorlux sets new standards in digital supply chains and manages to get everywhere with its marking.
So that safety and traceability determine each fiber in a sustainable and transparent way.

At Tailorlux, we offer you a contemporary traceability solution that documents every step from raw material to finished product at the point of sale. Tailorlux technology thus offers you a:

Indestructible marking

Our marking is introduced at the beginning during ginning and is now inseparably bonded to the fibers. And it is completely non-toxic and chemically inert.

Perfected traceability

Our sensor technology is used to read the individual and tamper-proof marking.

Real-time monitoring

Each measurement/verification goes directly to the cloud.

Deep insight into your supply chain

Data is collected and processed by an AI.

Full transparency

Each fiber knows its origin, so that the genuineness of the products can be ensured and guaranteed.

Experience the advantages of the invisible fingerprint yourself.
