Join BIO-CIRC project partners from the UK and France for a closing event for the EU-funded Interreg project which has been exploring the innovative reuse of waste polyester duvets in construction.
BIO-CIRC (Bio and Circular Insulation for Resourceful Construction) is an ERDF-funded research project that is investigating the waste bedding sector in the UK and France, and the potential reuse of polyester duvets, which currently suffer from poor recycling rates and sanitary issues.
On the main outputs of the project will be the creation of a number of innovative insulation prototypes made from re-fiberised polyester from waste bedding, with the aim of providing solutions for the construction industry which can contribute towards both net zero and circular economy ambitions. Join us as this ‘hybrid’ event to hear more about the findings of the 2-year research project!

The BIO-CIRC project has been awarded by the Interreg VA France (Channel) England programme, which is co-financed by the ERDF. The European Union (ERDF) will fund 80% of the project budget, which amounts to about €500,000 overall (€399,600 from ERDF).
The programme is a Cross Border European Territorial Cooperation (ETC) Programme which aims at supporting the development of the France (Channel) England area in line with the goals of the 2020 Europe strategy to create jobs and smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
