At CETIA, we are developing solutions to transform textile and leather articles into sources of material ready for recycling. Leveraging automation, robotics and artificial intelligence, we are building efficient systems to make recycling operations competitive. We support marketers, collectors/sorters and recyclers in the design and deployment of innovative solutions to bring their textile and leather recovery projects to life.
