Moving towards a circular future in textiles | T-REX Project x SCIRT Open Webinar Series

EU funded projects, T-REX Project and SCIRT are joining forces in a series of open-source webinars to help navigate the transformations taking place in the European textile landscape.
Back to overview

Upcoming EU regulations targeting the fashion industry require fundamental change across the entire value chain, building meaningful solutions through close collaboration and effective circular ecosystems.  

Two EU funded projects, T-REX Project and SCIRT, are joining forces in a series of open-source webinars to help navigate the transformations taking place in the European textile landscape and highlight how relationships between different players can be nurtured and strengthened to move towards an effective circular supply chain. The webinars will be streamed live on LinkedIn and available to join and revisit for free. 

 

T-REX Project x SCIRT Open Webinar #1: Separate household textile waste collection by January 2025 — what does it mean for the  textile industry?

We begin with a panel discussion on the separate household textile waste collection requirement that will come into effect in EU member states by January 2025. 

  •  Increasing availability of textile waste for the circular economy
  • What’s required to scale fibre-to-fibre recycling across Europe 
  • How can we enhance textile recycling
