ISWA Beacon Conference on Circular Textile Management

SAVE THE DATE! SAVE THE DATE! SAVE THE DATE!

09. May 201
9, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

"Circular economy is the sustainable future. The government underlines the importance of this transition with the policy programme called 'The Netherlands Circular in 2050'.
Circular is the way to remove the waste of the current take-make-waste model from the production and consumption system. Also that of textiles.
It’s about both planet and people here."

Hanneke op den Brouw Rijkswaterstaat, Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment

SAVE THE DATE! SAVE THE DATE! SAVE THE DATE!

 

The Beacon Conference is ISWA’s premier meeting format to showcase best practice and debate upcoming developments in the waste management industry.

 
This one-day conference spotlights diverse international presentations on new and emerging treatments, technologies and business models that are bringing waste fibres and textiles into the Circular Ecomony - showcasing innovatios and case studies right along the value chain.
