The mattress business is very dynamic, both in terms of its technical and commercial aspects. At present, the focus is on the manufacture of more environmentally-acceptable products and innovative methods of final disposal. An additional boost has been given to these issues at various levels by new laws and regulations. The global mantra for the bedding industry is now: how can we effect the circular motion of materials within the mattress business? The forthcoming interzum@home online event will be the platform from which the chief executives of four international trade associations will describe the status quo of mattress materials recycling, and outline possible innovative approaches to closing current gaps in the cycle.
