VDMA: Webtalk On Material Efficiency And Fiber Recycling In Textile Spinning

FRANKFURT — January 15, 2021 — The first VDMA technology webtalk in 2021 is scheduled for January 21, from 2-4 p.m. (CET). The topic will be “Material efficiency and fiber recycling in textile spinning: Approaches for circular economy”.

The experts will give an overview of the recycling processes that can turn old clothes into high-quality yarns and fabrics.

The presenters and their topics at a glance:

Dr. Bettina Temath, Truetzschler Group will demonstrate how production waste from spinning preparation can be recycled. She will also present solutions to process recycled fibers made from postconsumer textile waste and explain how the best possible quality can be achieved.

Title of the presentation: “From waste to value: Recycling processes in spinning preparation”


René Bucken, Saurer Group: “The use of regenerated fibers increases the share of short fibers in the sliver which tends to decrease spinning mill efficiency. Saurer offers solutions for different materials and fiber compositions in order to optimize spinning for all kinds of fibers.”

Title of the presentation: “Efficiency in spinning regenerated fibre”


Michael Wolf, imat-uve imat will show, using a specific project as an example, how high-quality yarns can be developed and produced from old clothing using blended fibers.

Title of the presentation:“New life for old clothes – Mixed fibre recycling for high demands”
