Plastic Free World Conference & Expo is a two-day conference and exhibition for businesses looking to reduce their plastic consumption, find and source highly sustainable alternative bio-based materials, and create a more circular economy throughout their supply chain.
Fibersort project manager, Hilde Van Duijn, delivered an engaging presentation on how to create a zero waste textile industry, focusing around the key role that the Fibersort can play to turn used textiles (containing around 65% of polyester) into feedstock for recyclers. This is due to the Fibersort's ability to recognize the composition of textiles in the sorting process. The event was attended by a vast amount of relevant recyclers, hence a perfect opportunity to connect and assess wether Fibersorted materials are suitable to use as feedstock for recycling.
