Moving towards a circular economy is vital to address the enormous textile waste challenges of the industry

The EU EPR for textiles  mandates the compulsory collection and sorting of textile waste by 2025. In order to meet these regulatory requirements, the textile industry must significantly increase its recycling capacity and foster collaboration among different players within the value chain.

At the heart of this transformation are also investments in biobased textiles, derived from renewable resources such as plant fibers. Biobased textiles offer a sustainable alternative to conventional fabrics, reducing dependency on non-renewable resources and minimizing the environmental footprint of the textile industry.

Circularity in textiles goes beyond material choices. Design for longevity, repairability, and end-of-life considerations are integral aspects of creating a circular economy.

In summary, the EU's commitment to biobased and recycled textiles, reduction on overconsumption , promoting reuse models reflects a strategic move towards a more sustainable and environmentally conscious textile industry.

The 3rd Biobased & Recycled Textiles event brings together the entire textile supply chain to share developments in reducing environmental footprint for the industry.

Some of the key highlights to be covered include 

  • Revision of the Waste Directive Framework as cornerstone to increase textiles circularity
  • Brandowners and retailers addressing sustainability targets and optimising recovery of waste from their own brands
  • Innovative renewable, biodegradable  materials with low carbon footprint - Biobased , sustainable dye & inks
  • Boosting reuse & repair models
  • Innovations in man made cellulosic fibres – beyond cotton
  • Traceability & transparency in supply chain
  • Textiles to textiles recycling challenges

And many more…
