Textile Mission Project Update - Reduction of microplastic release from textiles

Initiative against Micro-plastic Release in Environment. Sporting Goods Manufacturers Conduct a Research in Collaboration with Two Universities and an Environmental Organisation. Synthetic fibre-based textiles can shed micro-particles once when they are washed. Such particles end up in the environment and can enter the food chain when being released into rivers, lakes and seas. Reducing this environmental burden is the goal of a joint research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
