2nd Biobased & Recycled Textiles,

20-21 Mar, 2023 - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS

Amsterdam Marriott Hotel

It is reported that about 5.8 million tonnes of textiles are discarded every year in the EU, approximately 11kg per person 4 , and every second somewhere in the world a truckload of textiles is landfilled or incinerated.

The trend of using garments for ever shorter periods, also known as fast-fashion,  before throwing them away contribute the most to unsustainable patterns of overproduction and overconsumption.

Today as we accept the realities of climate change, this can no longer continue.

The time has come for the industry to search for more sustainable materials, better recycling options, and increasing awareness of their environmental footprint.

The new EU Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles sets out the vision and concrete actions to ensure that by 2030 textile products placed on the EU market are long-lived and recyclable, made as much as possible of recycled fibres, free of hazardous substances and produced in respect of social rights and the environment.

CMT’s 2nd Biobased & Recycled Textiles will gather all players in the supply chain to share innovations, new ideas and bring together brilliant discussions with regulatory updates on the EU sustainable textiles strategy.
