Recycling for the Footwear and Apparel Industry

Light industry is the one always associated with wastes production. Therefore, production wastes as secondary material resources should be in focus. Traditionally, when we think of the light industry we assume footwear, textile, leather and fur, sewing and knitwear industries. All of them, for sure, in their production leave behind large quantities of different wastes.
Therefore, the problem of recycling and rational use of light industry wastes is urgent and timely.
