From 21 to 24 June, REACT featured at this year’s edition of Techtextil: the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens.

The fair, hosted at in Messe Frankfurt (Germany), is an event in which, famously, international exhibitors cover the entire spectrum of technical textiles, functional apparel textiles and textile technologies.

REACT’s coordinating partner Centrocot was present on the exhibition floor with a booth, and the center’s Multisectoral and Innovation Researcher Daniele Piga held a lecture in the context of Techtextil Forum: his presentation – entitled “Recycling of fabrics: REACT removes finishing for high-purity secondary raw materials” – took place in the morning of 23 June, in front of an audience of over 60 participants, and consisted in an overview of the project’s work and latest development in the recycling of acrylic fabrics for sun protection and furniture.

The presentation is available, in its entirety, in the dedicated section of the website:
