On 31 March 2023, The European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing (Textile ETP) organised the “3rd ECOSYSTEX Dissemination Webinar”, where the ALIGNED project was highlighted, among other relevant initiatives such as WhiteCycle and BioTEN. During this event, both projects presented their aims and objectives, and report on their latest progress and developments.
There, Marisa Groenestege, from BTG Group, was in charge of providing a short presentation of the ALIGNED project, including its objectives, expected outcomes, and sectors of interest.
In the words of Marisa Groenestege: “The ALIGNED project is one of the answers to the EU’s call to improve the environmental performance of Construction, Woodworking, Textiles, Pulp and Paper and Biochemicals. We believe that bioeconomy and bio-based products hold the promise of potentially reversing climate change restoring biodiversity and protecting air, water and soil quality of the World”.
ECOSYSTEX is an initiative of the Research Executive Agency of the European Commission (REA), the European Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA) and the Circular-Biobased Europe Joint Undertaking to accelerate collaboration in textile sustainability.
