About this event
Can you image a life without textiles? The answer will be definitely ‘no’! But did you ever consider what happens to the enormous piles of textile waste generated every day?
Most of it is simply landfilled or incinerated. Nowadays, a shift toward a circular economy is inevitable, also within the textile industry. More and more emphasis is put on recycling of textiles, both in industry and research.
Within this free webinar we would like to present you a broader picture of circularity in the EU textiles and apparels industry as well as an overview of current textile recycling processes. Further, we will present the latest developments on recycling coated textiles via solvation and debondable coatings.
This webinar is organised within the framework of the DECOAT project, which has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 814505.
