Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

A new technology developed in the UK offers corporations a golden opportunity to take much greater responsibility for their used uniforms and workwear. 
Heeding government messages and the ‘consumer education’ public relations initiatives of many multi-corporations, the UK public is now keeping around 62% of its discarded textiles out of landfill. 
Yet the country’s governmental institutions and the corporations themselves currently prevent just 11% of centrally-procured corporate clothing from the same fate. 
One problem, explains Chris Fowler, managing director of NIRI, the Nonwovens Innovation and Research Institute based at the University of Leeds, is that there are a number of security concerns in respect of the ‘tax tags’ and logos used on branded clothing, which also add to recycling difficulties.
