The second edition of the Sustainable Textile School (STS) will be held in Chemnitz, Germany, from September 10 to 12, 2018. The intended ten lectures and five accompanying presentations in the expo will focus on recycling and sourcing issues that the textile industry faces today. It will be a forum for innovation with a focus on sustainability in textiles.

Compared to the premiere last year, this year’s edition will have longer and more intense lectures combined with workshops, which were the most popular formats last year.

The Environmental Innovation Prize will also be awarded for the second time. The focus of the assessment is set on practically and environmentally friendly subsequent utilisation processes and ground-breaking recycling, enabling to save resources and transferring to closed loops. Moreover, new sources and business models for producing high-quality and sustainable textile products having a long-life and usage are part of this year’s prize.

Many international experts will join the Advisory Board of the expo. Charlotte Turner (Eco Age), Dr. Pamela Ravasio (European Outdoor Group), Karla Magruder (Fabricology), Christina Raab (ZDHC), Sonja Amport (STF), Giuseppe Gherzi (Gherzi Organisation), Mark Jarvis (World Textile Information Network), Dr. Reiner Hengstmann (go4more.global), and Mag. Lorenz Wied will work together with the STS organisation and the STFI, represented by its executive scientific director, Yves-Simon Gloy, to build a valuable programme and connect players from the global textile value chains.

Fast fashion and ever-increasing consumption require players in the textile system to deal with the end-of-life scenarios of their products. Resource efficiency must be combined with sustainable and cost-efficient production and procurement. Consumers and legislative initiatives will have a major impact on the rules of this industry over the next few years.

In order to provide the topic of resource efficiency and sustainability with the necessary attention in the fields of engineering, development, and purchasing, recycling is the main focus of this year’s STS. The motto Realcycling & New Sources will be shared by more than 200 professionals and students from all sectors of the textile industry. At the same time, they are working on new content for the planned Textile Online University 4.0, which will use the powerful tools of digitisation to communicate new knowledge, technologies, and business models across the entire industry.
