Company C had accumulated a large amount of rags and was struggling to find a company who was willing to take them.

The rag market was exhausted and it was getting to the point where disposal was going to cost a considerable amount both financially and to the environment. The CEO had been told through an industry contact that there may be a method of reclaiming a large proportion of these rather than dispose and he contacted Regenex.

A trial was set up where he quantified the results both for cost and quality and decided to proceed. The accumulated batch was delivered using a 20 tonnes container in stackable plastic pallets to maximise weight and minimise transport costs and over 40 tonnes was processed. Over 30 tonnes was successfully reclaimed by the Regenex system and then collected segregated into table linen, bed linen and towels to be re-introduced into pool stock.
