Order the latest report on closing the loop for the global textiles industry now.Closing the Loop is a new, independent report and technical guide on how brands and retailers can 'close the loop' when it comes to sustainability in the global textile industry. The new report is an industry first for the textile sector. This unique @100 page report will guide brands and retailers through the challenges – technical, financial, logistical – that the textile industry faces as it seeks to move towards more circular ways of working.The report includes input from Dutch-based Circle Economy, Worn Again, I:CO, Mistra, ICAC, Nick Morley and WRAP as well as brands such as Nike, Inditex, Teijin, Puma, Timberland, G-Star, Fast Retailing, Lindex and Lidl.What does it cover?The Closing the Loop report examines:

  • The technical challenges involved in textile recycling, particularly the chemical recycling of mixed (cotton and polyester) fibres.
  • New developments in cellulosic fibre recycling where significant technological progress has been made in recent years. We will look at notable projects in this area which look set to make the jump from the lab to commercial production.
  • Global mega-trends (population growth, great focus on sustainability issues), increased global fibre consumption and a finite cotton supply are all contributing to the global fibre gap – meaning brands need to explore new, circular ways of working.
  • Recycling for synthetic, man-made fibres, including current developments at organisations such as Teijin and Toray who use chemical recycling to produce new polyester yarns.
  • Facts and figures on current global fibre volumes, including recycled fibres. The report will examine just how urgent this issue is for brands.
  • Clothing take-back schemes such as I:CO. We will look at how such schemes work on a practical level whether they make commercial and financial sense for brands.
  • Blue-sky thinking and future technology developments in textile recycling and implications for brands.
  • Legislative issues and how they will impact the textile recycling market (eg Extended Producer Responsibility legislation)
