Bolton University to host recycling symposium in 2011

Jul '10
The University of Bolton has put out a call for papers in preparation for hosting the Third International Symposium on Fibre Recycling.

Held in collaboration with the Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, and Kyoto Institute of Technology, Japan, the symposium will be held at the University on 15 and 16 June 2011.

Around the world, textile and fibre waste has become a growing concern for both environmentalists and those working in and with the waste disposal industries. The symposium aims to be a forum for both scientists and industrialists to explore and discuss the latest research findings and innovative solutions in their field. The symposium also aims to provide a dynamic forum for exchanging ideas and build on international cooperation.

Topics for papers include: natural and synthetic fibre recycling, carpet recycling, reuse of fibrous waste in new applications, cleaning processes and machineries, environmental impacts and possible solutions and future trends.

Said Symposium Chair at the University of Bolton, Dr Mohsen Miraftab: 'Recycling is still in its infancy and much of what could be recycled or diverted into alternative applications remains unexplored, or currently unattractive for reasons such as cost.

'The research communities across the world have a great deal they can give to recycling and this symposium is an important opportunity for us to come together to learn from each other and inspire new ways forward.'

The deadline for submitting abstracts is 15 December 2010.
