Stakeholder Conference: TextileMission - Findings and Solutions from three Years of Research

Our research project TextileMission is coming to an end after more than three years of research. We would like to take this opportunity to share with you the insights gained, promising approaches to solutions and necessary further steps. What are the extent and causes of microplastic emissions from textiles? What are the findings from textile research and water chemistry? And above all: What approaches are there to reducing microplastic input into the environment? These and other questions will be in the focus of our expert conference on March 17, 2021, which will take place as an online-only event due to the current situation.
