Legislation and government policy influencing the carpet and textile flooring sector’s creation of circular initiatives will be a key focus at the annual conference of Carpet Recycling UK (CRUK), at the voco® St. John’s Solihull from June 21-22.

Through its 138-strong membership and international outreach, the not-for-profit association is helping the sector to reduce and recycle textile flooring waste such as residential and commercial broadloom carpet, carpet tiles, event carpets and underlay.

CRUK’s conference will offer its members and the wider network dissemination and networking opportunities for UK, EU and international decision makers from across the supply chain.

Returning as keynote speaker and CRUK Awards presenter will be Bob Peoples, executive director of the US-based Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) and a second keynote speaker, Hans-Peter Breuer of GUT-Prodis, will provide updates on sector developments in the EU and Product Passport initiatives.

Other topics to be explored are UK waste policy and Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) programmes and how they relate to carbon calculation and net-zero targets.

The popular Carpet Recycling UK annual member awards will recognise and reward companies and organisations who are taking voluntary and proactive action to demonstrate and drive sustainability in the carpet and textile flooring sector. 

“Our comprehensive two-day conference programme will explore the important legislative and policy implications for the sector through a range of expert speakers, making it a must-attend event,” said CRUK scheme manager Adnan Zeb-Khan.
