The Event

The European textiles industry uses 17 million tonnes non-renewable input materials yearly, making it one of the most polluting industries! Resources are limited while the planet is being polluted with waste from our consumption.

Therefore a transition to a circular business model is crucial.

 

At the event, visitors could join the following presentations and interviews: PROGRAM

Recordings and pictures of these presentations and interviews (and more) can be viewed here:

FOCUS

During the event, actual questions and issues about circular textiles will get attention, such as:

  1. Is a recycled material available that meets my technical requirements?
  2. Are LCA (Life-Cycle Assessment) or other reliable data available to compare the ecological impact of recycled versus virgin material?
  3. Will my product need a circular design to ensure the various components will be suitable for a recycling stream?
  4. What would be a reason to consider recycled materials?
  5. Is post-consumer recycling a good option for me and which methods are possible?
  6. Which bio-based materials are currently available?
  7. What are the facts of recycling materials, such as polyester, polyamide 6, wool and other materials?
