IFAT Munich X OutDoor by ISPO

The first IFAT Munich Cross-industry session entitled "Recycling strategies in the sporting goods industry - what's up? Status quo, opinions and solutions" took place at OutDoor by ISPO 2023 on June 4.

The two experts Dr.-Ing. Julia Hobohm, Managing Director of Gemeinsame Rücknahmesystem Servicegesellschaft mbH and Kim Scholze, Sales Officer of Sympatex discussed the development of a textile recycling infrastructure beyond the outdoor borders, as only the entire textile industry can provide the necessary quantities (tons) for recycling facilities.

Missed the presentation? No problem, because we recorded it as a video podcast.

IFAT Munich X digitalBAU conference & networking

Not only in the sporting goods industry, but also in the construction industry there is great potential for optimization in terms of sustainable production processes, recycling strategies and circular economy.

Buildings and infrastructure are an important, man-made store of raw materials. In terms of climate and resource protection, this treasure must be harnessed and put to good use. The environmental technologies presented at IFAT Munich every two years can be used for precisely this purpose.

Therefore, our second cross-industry session will take place at this year's digitalBAU conference & networking. The topic will be “Circular economy in construction: the contribution of digital technologies.”—Be there!
