Themed around the future of man-made fibres, Dornbirn Man-made Fibres Congress is being held during September 13-15, 2017. The congress, a "green meeting and green event" based on sustainable arrival, reduction of carbon dioxide, ecological catering, eco-friendly accommodations and waste management, will see lectures on water management and marine litter.
 
Delegations from Asia and the Americas have already confirmed their participation for the event which will be attended by leading brands and private label producers. Latest developments with applications of medicine and hygiene in the fields of hospital, nursing and implantology will be showcased at the congress. 
 
The event will see more than 100 experts speaking on themes like fibre innovations, fibres, textiles and nonwovens for hygiene and healthcare applications, fibres, textiles and nonwovens for protective applications, and fibres, textiles and nonwovens for sports and leisure wear. Lectures on the issues of water management by Veolia Water Tehcnologies and "Marine Litter (micro plastics)" from Germany are also expected. 
 
The organisers are expecting a speaker from NASA for the introductory lecture on flame retardant textile fibres for space research. A reputable global producer of protective clothing will present the latest developments and the requirements of the preliminary stages of the supply chain. 
 
The event will see several key note speeches. Vaude, the innovative outdoor brand will present on sportswear. Issues of functionalisation and ecological manufacturing process will also be addressed at the event. There would also be a "Young Scientists` Forum" on the final day of the congress.
 
An expert panel will discuss "textile and nonwovens waste - a threat or opportunity?", the day before the opening of the Congress. It will see coming together of the fibre and nonwovens industry and the waste management companies.
 
The event is being promoted by Dornbirn-MFC, CIRFS (European Chemical Fibre Association), EDANA (Association of the Nonwovens Industry) and ISWA (International Solid Waste Association). Lenzing, the world`s largest and most innovative cellulose fibre producer, is the lead sponsor of the congress.

Overall, more than 700 participants from 34 nations - 80 per cent from Europe, 15 per cent from Asia, five per cent from the Americas - visited Dornbirn last year. (SV)
