cycletalk - our information and exchange platform

As part of the realCYCLE project, we organized regular CYCLEtalks for registered and interested actors, in which we showed the latest project developments, presented new findings and discussed new issues. The company realcycle continues to run the platform under the same name with a slightly different spelling.

The 9th cycletalk will focus on clean cycles for plastics and the recycling of mattresses. How can cycles be designed when it comes to functional clothing? Cédric Clavière, Country Manager of Patagonia, provides insight into the circularity of functional clothing.

"We put the power of NIR analysis into the palm of your hands". Daniela Kolodziej, Manager Business Development & Sales IR Sensing of trinamiX, presents the innovative mobile NIR technology. By simply using a portable handheld device that combines trinamiX data analysis with a mobile app, various compositions of different plastics can be precisely determined and thus distinguished. During the cycletalk break, you can test the device yourself.
