Carpet Recycling UK explores carpet waste at edie Live 2019

  • 29 Mar 2019

Carpet Recycling UK‘s Scheme Manager, Adnan Zeb-Khan is set to reveal the company’s ongoing challenges and secrets of its success at edie Live 2019.

Formed in 2008, CRUK has been at the forefront of finding new uses for waste carpet and diverting one million tonnes of this bulky material from landfill. 

Consistent support from CRUK’s industry-leading core funders and flooring supply chain members has been crucial in driving forward innovation, from recycling techniques to supporting entrepreneurial development of new markets.

Adnan will be explaining CRUK’s resource efficiency success story and its achievements at edie Live’s Circular Economy Theatre at the NEC in Birmingham on May 22nd.

The presentation will cover overcoming the challenges of tackling waste carpet and how the sector is responding to design for recycling and future product resource efficiency.

“We’re very proud of what we have achieved so far in terms of developing viable and sustainable reuse and recycling opportunities for carpet that prevent valuable resources from being lost forever,” says Adnan.

He adds: “Examples such as carpet tile reuse helping Third Sector organisations to recycling fibres for use in new underlay or as horticultural growing felt, demonstrate that our journey towards recovering ever-increasing volumes of waste carpet into resource-efficient circular practices continues to be a truly inspirational one.”

CRUK’s core funders are Cormar Carpets, Lifestyle Floors/Headlam, Brintons Carpets, DESSO, ege, Milliken and Balsan. Promoting increased recycled content in textile flooring and ‘circular production’ practices are a key focus for CRUK as it approaches its 60% landfill diversion by 2020 goal.

Carpet Recycling UK’s 2019 Annual Conference and Awards event will be held on Thursday 18th July at Edgbaston Cricket Stadium in Birmingham. Visit the website to find out more.
