How does it work?

RR platform offers an access point to 4 different types of “roles” on the platform, which may not always overlap with how the industry usually talks about the supply chain actors:

  • A supplier of the waste – an organisation that is generating waste and has detailed background information on it (e.g. exact composition of it), which may be valuable for the recycling process (e.g. a garment factory, a post-consumer sorting facility or a hotel group)
  • A “handler” of the waste – anyone processing the waste before the fibre gets “locked” into a new product, e.g. doing fibre-sorting of the waste, quality check, aggregation of bigger volumes, shredding, etc.
  • A recycler – anyone who needs pre-processed textile waste for the production of high-quality materials or products for the textile industry
  • A brand – anyone who is interested in mapping and tracing a certain amount of “my own” waste flows throughout the supply chain, regardless of the legal ownership of this waste.

Each party on the platform has their own access point and private data room, allowing them to take control over whom they’re sharing their information with, who their preferred collaboration partners are and which data they are ready to share. However, on the background, RR makes sure that our standardise processes, internal matchmaking mechanism and data verification process support each party in taking the smartest decisions on who to work with and which party to trust.
