Biodegradation of textiles Hohenstein's focus at Techtextil
02
Mar '17
With a focus on biodegradation of textiles, the Hohenstein Group will exhibit at twin trade shows, Techtextil and Texprocess to be held in Frankfurt in hall 3.1, booth no. B21. Hohenstein experts will present a test procedure for assessing biodegradation of textiles, and show marketing opportunities offered by certification and product labels.

According to Hohenstien, biodegradability of textile products is becoming an increasingly important factor in assessing their sustainability, focussing not just on manufacturing and product safety, but on what happens to a product once it reaches the end of its useful life cycle.

Hohenstein scientists are also currently involved in a collaborative project to develop protein-based water and dirt-repellent finishing agents to provide an alternative to hydrophobic processes using fluorocarbon chemicals (PFC).

The aim is to functionalise textiles in a stable, economical and sustainable way, using fungal proteins produced with biotechnology as a replacement for per- and polyfluorinated hydrocarbons that are potentially dangerous to humans and the environment. (AR)
