Each year, 35 million mattresses are disposed of in Europe alone.
Only a fraction of those can be effectively recycled – too poor is the quality of the material, too complex the structure.
As a result, the majority end up on landfill sites or are burned. Mattresses are becoming a real environmental problem.
To counteract that, manufacturers and suppliers are working hard to provide more sustainable products and components, with the aim of transforming the mattress from a high-waste product to a zero-waste one. Planned changes to the Circular Economy Act provide additional incentive for this development – circularity is now becoming a benchmark for the whole industry.
Concepts and products relating to circular mattresses
interzum@home tooks up this highly topical subject and, in cooperation with Ferdinand Holzmann Verlag’s B2B network möbelfertigung, is inviting the big names of the mattress industry to the digital stage. On 4–7 May, the industry’s key trendsetters presented their ideas, concepts and products relating to circular mattresses on the Mattress Recycling Stage.
Presentations, interviews and panel discussions
Innovative companies such as Auping, Agro International, BASF, Mattes & Ammann, Recticel, Schlaraffia and many more, as well as the major industry associations reported directly from their markets and gone up against the international competition in a round table discussion. Visitors to the Mattress Recycling Stage could therefore expect an interesting mixture of presentations, interviews and discussion rounds, demonstrating how much dynamism there is in the globally growing circular economy market for mattresses.
