What is next for the textile and fibre recycling industries? While the circular economy thinking is gaining strength, new technologies are being developed with the ambition to transform waste fibres into secondary resources. But how can we collaboratively take the next steps to adopt and promote recycling technologies?
At the World Recycling Convention in Barcelona, organised by the Bureau of International Recycling, we presented our project Resyntex and engaged with industry stakeholders on the prospects of textile recycling and reuse in the near future. We presented findings from our stakeholder engagement along the value chain as well as the inputs given by young consumers across the EU.
