On 7 and 8 June 2017, the Manchester Fashion Institute of the Manchester Metropolitan University hosted the International Fibre Recycling Symposium, with delegates from research, industry and retail. Prospex Institute, together with Sara Li-Chou Han from the Manchester Metropolitan University, took the floor to present the findings of our stakeholder consultations held in the context of Resyntex.
Examining textile waste routes and their corresponding mosaic of collectors, sorters and recyclers, we identified the key drivers and opportunities for textile waste collectors for a transition to more circular value chains. Through stakeholder engagement, our research proposes how conditions for collectors’ adoption of circular practices can be improved, while avoiding sectoral disruption and ensuring maximum effectiveness of the redesigned chain of secondary textiles.
