The European Commission has decided to prioritise the development of end-of-waste criteria for plastic and textiles. Work on the criteria for plastic has already begun with the finalisation of the technical assessment expected by 2024. The work on end-of-waste criteria for textile waste will commence in 2023. Definitions of Plastics and Textiles are as follows:

Plastics (polyethylene terephthalate recovered/recycled, mixed plastics waste recovered/recycled, polypropylene plastic recovered/recycled from plastic waste between others.)



Textiles (cellulosic fibres recovered/recycled and mixed fibres recovered/recycled from textile waste between others.)

About APLF

We bring leather, material and fashion businesses together: an opportunity to meet and greet face to face. We bring them from all parts of the world so that they can find fresh partners, discover new customers or suppliers and keep ahead of industry developments.


We organise a number of trade exhibitions which focus on fashion and lifestyle: sectors that are constantly in flux, so visitors and exhibitors alike need to be constantly aware both of the changes around them and those forecast for coming seasons.
