News - Wolkat advises Dutch national committee for circular textiles
In order to minimise material wastage and optimise material use, it is important to keep a product or material in the chain for as long as possible. With this in mind, the working group 'Circular Textiles' by the NEN (Dutch Norm) was set up. Wolkat is an active participant and also advisor in this working group. This means we invested in ensuring that this working group could come into being and has a say in the outcome.
The Netherlands Standardization Institute has now also officially laid down the requirements. The Dutch Technical Agreement (NTA) Circular Textiles could even serve as a basis for normalization on national or even international level with regard to requirements for circular textiles. Wolkat not only gives textile waste a new life, but also contributes to establish the standardization around circularity and sustainability of textiles!
