The event

Take it, use it, throw it away! For many decades, mattresses have been designed, manufactured and finally disposed of on this principle. At the end of its service life a mattress usually ends up on a dump or is burned. It is now high time for the mattress industry to think again, say Inga Arling, Ronja Zoppke and Job Dröge. In the podium discussion these experts outline possible ways as to how – from the manufacturers’ point of view – materials recovered from time-served mattresses can be re-used in the same function; further, to offer suggestions how the issue can be tackled on an industrial basis in partnership with associated businesses.
