60th Dornbirn Global Fiber Congress
This year, the 60th Dornbirn GFC Congress will be held in online format from September 15 to 17.
The congress is considered to be an innovation platform for the fiber industry and serves as a generator for ideas and the foundation for networking. The presentation „From old pants to new seats: New life for used textiles made from blended fibers “, by Hans Peter Schlegelmilch, Management Board Member from imat-uve, and Laura Kunze, Project Management Innovative Material Development, will be taken place on the second day (September 16). They will talk about an EU-/Interreg-funded project on the recycling of blended fibers. This involves processing blended fibers into a high-performance yarn, for the automotive industry. The aim is re-using textile waste and approaching a circular textile production.
