Re-Engineering Textile - Avoiding Microplastics


Thursday 29th November 2018

10:45 - 11:45 CET

Expert Talk Area

This expert talk is aimed at brands, retailers and suppliers wanting to demystify the topic of microplastics and the textiles industry. Together we will look at the entire process from raw materials to final product and end of life to understand where textile engineering can influence the reduction in fibre loss.

  • Why do we need to look at textile reengineering as a solution to this complex topic?
  • How can we map out how this needs to be done through the use of a new infographic tool?
  • What can we learn from our understanding to date?
