10:00 - 11:45 SESSION 1: REGENERATION

The recycling of non-reusable textiles and footwear remains a vast undertaking, whether in a closed or open loop. However, industrial groups have launched a number of initiatives to improve the recycling of their residual materials (especially plastics) and transform textile industry waste into new materials. This first session aims to explore how these initiatives work and what opportunities they offer, especially in the current energy crisis.

Eco-design means integrating environmental commitments into the design of a product. How can we do this?
