Webinar: Finnish solutions for producing high quality textiles from recycled materials and sustainable biomass sources

FINIX – sustainable textile systems research project invites you to find out and discuss Finnish developments on textile recycling and sustainable biomass sources supporting recycled streams in the textile value chain and to paint the picture on these developments in Europe in the coming years.

THE AIM of this webinar is to give participants up-to-date information and practical insights on Finnish technologies and developments in the field of chemical and mechanical textile recycling and sustainable biomass.  Together with researchers and industry representatives from Finland and the Netherlands we will create a picture how textile industry, ecosystems, materials and production chains could look like in 2035. The event is intended for both researchers and industry.
