To provide the perceived products and service, six different technologies are recommended as follows:

  1. resource saving and waste reduction
  2. digitization
  3. processing
  4. recycling
  5. testing and standards
  6. new business models

Technologies relating to resource saving and waste reduction will enhance the textile processes and satisfy requirements of sustainability certification. Digitalization increases the automation level and efficiency of different textile processes and reduces defect rate for each process. Meanwhile, digitalization makes supply chain traceable and more transparent. Processing technology can enhance textile processes in terms of circularity and resource saving, and provide various possibilities to develop sustainable materials. Recycling technologies not only improve textile recycling products and service, but also facilitate the development of certification. Testing and standards related technologies will contribute to the development of recycling and certification. New business models will provide more options for fashion consumption, including renting, reusing and others.
