Carpet Recycling

Report price: Euro 395.00; US$ 520.00  

Carpet recycling is set to increase significantly in Europe as companies take steps to comply with recycling, reuse and recovery targets for 2020 which are specified in the EU's Waste Framework Directive. Landfill bans coupled with a requirement to sort materials are seen as the best solutions in terms of resource efficiency gains and minimising the impact on climate change. Carpet Recycling UK (CRUK) -- a not-for-profit association which was set up in 2008 to address the challenges of recycling floorcoverings -- plans to divert 25% of carpet waste to landfill by 2015. The report assesses the objectives and achievements of CRUK, and analyses developments in environmentally-friendly processes and products aimed at reducing the amount of carpet waste which goes to landfill from several leading companies, namely Aquafil, Desso, Filature Miroglio, Forbo Flooring Systems, Greenback Recycling, Penthouse Carpets, Protomax and Sellers.

This is what our customers say:
"In 1987 I was working as a graduate-trainee in the buying teams at Marks & Spencer in London. I was asked to prepare a paper on the textile and clothing industry in Italy. In my search for information I discovered Textile Outlook International. The quality of information that this publication provided was nothing short of excellent. As I look back over the past 25 years, there have been several times that I've turned to the publications of Textiles Intelligence. They have always been of the highest quality and provided me with the opportunity to talk with confidence about the global textile & clothing industries. Today, I'm the Chief Supply Office for Umbro, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nike Inc. As I look back, of course there are many factors that have helped me to get to where I am today. I've no doubt that the information provided by Textiles Intelligence has been a contributory factor."
