Dornbirn - Delegates at this week's 62nd Dornbirn Global Fiber Congress in Austria will hear from the Lycra Company about the issues surrounding the effective recyclability of garments with stretch fibres.

In his presentation “Recyclability of Garments with Stretch Fibers: Challenges and Solutions", Jean Hegedus, director of sustainable business development at The Lycra Company, will explain that while garments made with stretch fibres bring a variety of benefits to consumers, such as enhanced comfort, style, and fit, they can also pose unique challenges for brands, retailers and their value chains working to advance a circular business model.

The paper will examine solutions for garments that contain elastane and/or elastomultiester and propose an eco-system of solutions that are needed to bring recyclable stretch technologies to commercialisation.
