design for disassembly and recyclability for blends in a circular economy

Laetitia's PhD research, "Textiles for Disassembly" aims to explore design driven solutions for incorporating ease of recyclability into blends. Using the tools of design for disassembly applied to materials, this research looks at how the current barriers to recycling mixed materials can be removed so as to design waste out of the systems from the very first stages of materials production. This research is funded by the University of the Arts London with additional support from the Cotton Textiles Research Trust.
