In the category of waste, an important place belongs to textile and leather waste. Textile wastes come from textile packaging, yarns, fabrics, knitwear, nonwovens, from which new raw materials are used to produce thick wool or cotton yarn, also for packaging, technical products, blankets, carpets. The textile industry affects the environment through high water consumption, energy, and chemicals, as well as a large amount of waste that it generates as a result of the use of an impressive number of chemicals and technological processes, which requires a permanent activity of waste reducing and capitalizing.
