Sustainable innovations will be the guiding principle of the Dornbirn Global Fiber Congress (Dornbirn-GFC) which will be held in Austria from September 12-14, 2018. The global congress will host over 100 lectures on academic research and industry. Delegations from Asia and US have already confirmed their participation for the upcoming event.

Lectures will be conducted at the event on key themes such as fibre innovations; transportation and mobility; recycling - circular economy; energy generation and storage; surface modification and additive technologies.

Top management from the lead sponsor Lenzing Group, Indorama and Reliance and other European, Asian and American fibre producers are expected to participate in the event. Due to the vast interest from industry and trade and the strong support of the EU Commission ‘circular economy’ is once again the focal point of the event. A panel discussion will be conducted by International Solid and Waste Association (ISWA) to discuss new approaches with relevant players from the textile value chain.

As a connoisseur of the automotive industry, AVL, the world`s biggest independent company for the development of powertrains, will discuss the relevance and potentials of the fibre industry in the future development of the automotive industry. Canadian brand Lululemon Athletica will talk about the latest innovations in the industry.

The successful ‘Young Scientist Forum’ will also be conducted for the third time. The workshop will take place on September 11, 2018, under the leadership of the industrial consultancy Syngroup (AUT) on the issue of ‘Open Innovation and its relevant challenges’.

The ‘Green Meeting & Green Event’ will be organised at the event to discuss eco-friendly accommodations, reduction of CO2 (carbon dioxide), ecological catering, as well as material - and waste management. (KD)
