During the Conference Circular Economy for Textiles and Plastics, Enterprise Europe Network will organise international business-to-business contact days where you can meet potential partners.

In preparation of these meetings, you will be asked to complete a business profile by specifying the kind of cooperation you are looking for. An online catalogue of the profiles will be made up allowing the participants to select the companies they would like to meet or to be invited in turn. On the basis of these selections, the Enterprise Europe Network will schedule individual appointments.

More information


lg_alsico_WIT_BLUE_0.pngAlsico is a specialist in workwear. As a family company with global activity and over 80 years of experience we are used to care about sustainability. We look at how we can produce a quality product while having a positive impact on people and the environment. A partnership with chain supervisor Dutch Awearness now permits us to close the loop and offer a fully circular product. The circular workwear is made out of a 100% polyester fabric woven from new filament that is made out of used polyester clothing. Infinity, as the fabric is called, can be recycled up to eight times. For mixed fabrics we offer an end-of-life solution; the clothes are shredded and mixed with plastic waste into a new composite (CLIFF) used for e;g. garden furniture and other various applications. These CLIFF products are recyclable again into a new composite at their end of life. We thus close the loop and create new, virtuous cycles.
