Innovation in the fibre world: focus of talks at GFC

RadiciGroup presents at the Global Fiber Congress on the circular economy and new trends in the automotive industry


Dornbirn (Austria), 12-14 September 2018 - For over 15 years, RadiciGroup has been a constant presence at the Global Fiber Congress, the international meeting on innovation in fibres that takes place in Dornbirn, Austria.  


About 700 specialists from 30 countries are taking part in the 57th edition of the event,  during which over 100 lectures will take stock of the situation in the evolving fibre world, with particular emphasis on the topics of the circular economy and sustainability. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore special areas of application more in depth, for instance, the automotive sector.


“With these themes as a focus during the three days in Austria,” said Arturo Andreoni, marketing and R&D director of RadiciGroup Performance Yarn, who has been on the GFC programme committee for many years, “RadiciGroup brings its experience as a manufacturer of innovative synthetic fibres that meet the needs of a continually evolving market, increasingly more demanding from a performance point of view. And the Group wants to share its circular approach to business. Our message for the entire production chain revolves around the concept of mechanical recycling: synthetic fibres, especially those with high physical-mechanical properties, can be recycled at the end of their useful life, for example, for new technical and industrial uses in the plastics field.”
