Man-made Fibres and Circular Economy

The European man-made fibres (MMF) industry has been active on circularity for many years. It is a frontrunner in MMF in this respect worldwide but also inside the European textile value chain.in order to reach a full circular economy in fibres and textiles we need:

  • Efficient waste collection and handling system
  • Technology for separating and recycling fibres
  • Global responsibility
  • Imported textiles and end-of-life materials
  • Biodegradable MMF
  • Interface with REACH regulations
  • Standardization and harmonization
  • Eco-design
  • Mutual collaboration
  • R&D and more...
