The aim of the research project is to reduce the impact of microparticles in the future.


TextileMission "runs for a period of three years and is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research with around 1.7 million euros as part of the funding priority" Plastics in the Environment - Sources, Sinks, Approaches to Solutions ".
