2nd International conference on "Circular Economy for Textiles and Plastics"

van 15 tot 16 december 2020

Due to the coronavirus health crisis, the conference has been postponed to 15 and 16 December, 2020. Please note that this new date remains subject to the evolution of this global health crisis.

Programme

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation states: 

Looking beyond the current take-make-waste extractive industrial model, a circular economy aims to redefine growth, focusing on positive society-wide benefits. It entails gradually decoupling economic activity from the consumption of finite resources, and designing waste out of the system.

Underpinned by a transition to renewable energy sources, the circular model builds economic, natural, and social capital. It is based on three principles:  

  • Reduce waste and pollution through design
  • Extend the life of products and materials
  • Regenerate natural systems

Conference language

The official language (both spoken and written) is English.

Partners

The International Conference is organised by Centexbel-VKC in partnership with Fedustria - Belgian federation of the textile, wood and furniture industry - and Plastiwin - Walloon business cluster for plastics.

Conference sponsors

Alsico designs and produces workwear and standardized protective clothing. We ensure that employees are protected, feel comfortable and are pleased with how they look. Our selection of fabric and material is based on quality, function and environmental impact. Our clothes are designed based on the needs of the wearer.

This performance-based eco-design as well as the cooperation with our laundry partners results in long use phase, easy collection of used garments and recycling to fibers and new products.
