BRUSSELS – The European Apparel and Textile Confederation (EURATEX) has proposed the development of five major recycling hubs which would potentially become European best practice coordination centres for textile and clothing recycling. The trade body suggests the hubs be based in Belgium, Finland, Germany, Italy and Spain due to these countries’ existing and emerging textile recycling infrastructure. They would be used for collecting, processing and recycling industrial and pre and post-consumer textile waste.
The European Union is introducing waste directives which, moving forwards, will require Member States to improve their waste systems around the management of material, to improve the efficiency of resource use, and ensure waste is “valued as a resource.”
