AIMPLAS to produce sustainable fabrics

Jun '17
AIMPLAS, a research institute, has taken initiative to produce biodegradable fabrics. Its FIBFAB project aims to develop 100 per cent bio-based and biodegradable clothing that meets the mechanical and performance requirements of the textile sector with the technology developed in previous EU projects to enhance the final polylactic acid (PLA) crystallinity.

The FIBFAB project has been initiated to successfully launch and industrialise the production of biodegradable and sustainable PLA based fabrics (wool/PLA and cotton/PLA) for the applications in casual (menswear and womenswear), protective and workwear clothing, and to overcome the current limitations of PLA fibres as a real alternative to current fabrics (wool and cotton combined with polyester fibres). This project will reduce the market dependence of Asian countries and improve the competitiveness of the textile sector by creating a new concept of clothing that fits the expectations of customers with high ecological awareness.

FIBFAB involves CENTEXBEL, Belgian scientific and technical centre for the textile industry; DS Fibres, one of the subsidiaries of the DS Textile Platform Group; Yünsa, worsted wool fabric producer and exporter and SINTEX, producer of protection textiles such as heat resistant, fireproof, antistatic, and antibacterial. Together with AIMPLAS, these consortium members cover the entire textile value chain, from fibre production to clothing manufacturing, ensuring the industrial implementation of PLA fibres. (RR)
