Leather and textile waste comprise natural cotton, animal fur, silk, linen, etc., may also be polyester, cotton, acrylic ,and other chemical products or artificial leather. Whether it is natural or chemical, there are three major ways to process leather and textile waste in the recycling industry currently,
Recycling: After being selected and shredded by specialized factory, leather and textile waste can be processed into vegetable greenhouse insulation, tree insulation blanket, roadbed fabric, car interior, sound insulation cotton, etc.
RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) production: After shredded and secondary processed, leather and textile waste can be processed into RDF production for co-incineration use in cement plant calciners, fluidized bed combustion, and power plants for energy recovery.
Pyrolysis is treatment: Pyrolys is technology that can be used to process leather and textile waste to obtain combustible gases, liquids , and other useful substances. However, whether it is for distillation, pyrolysis at low temperature, pyrolysis at medium temperature , or pyrolysis at high temperature, it is required that the material should reach a certain particle size so as to ensure the pyrolysis process is carried out fully.
