AEI Tèxtils presented FLAREX as example for sustainability and circular economy during the launch of “Recircula Challenge 2020”
AEI Tèxtils participated in the presentation of the “Recircula Challenge 2020” contest organized by the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) on February 10th 2020.
The Recircula Challenge 2020 is a creative and innovation driven contest with teams of students to complement the learning with hands-on case studies related to circular economy. Each team will present a business case based on technology that reduces the environmental footprint and has a positive social impact. The contest will last until July 2020 with the demo day and an award ceremony.
AEI Tèxtils presented the cluster-driven initiatives and its members’ activities to promote sustainability and circular economy in the textile industry as a series of case studies that encompass the different fields of actuation: substitution of hazardous chemicals (LIFE-FLAREX, MIDWOR-LIFE), eco-design (Ecodistex, ARPE), cross-sectoral cooperation (PACTEX) and upcycling (Hilaturas Arnau, SEAQUAL).
