Save the date for the 4th and final open webinar of a series by T-REX Project and SCIRT Project on Wednesday, 26 June, at 11:30 CEST.
Back to overview

This session will be dedicated to the link between the projects and the ESPR regulations for textiles, that have been voted in favour by the European Parliament.

In the 1-hour webinar, we will address the following:
– What is expected in terms of ESPR in Europe.
– The tradeoff between prioritising quality of product vs using recycled garments.
– The challenges faced dealing with chemical recycling as well as garments made before ESPR.
– The tools and models that can be used in the industry to account for ecodesign.

The session is moderated by Kirsi Niinimaki, Associate Professor in Design, Research team leader of Fashion/Textile Futures Aalto University.

Speakers from both projects will share their insights:
Tom Duhoux, Research and Development in Circular Economy at VITO
Simon Gryspeert, Lead Entrepreneurship & Innovation at Flanders DC
Doris Hondtong, Circular Product Developer at Arapaha
