Overview of our research and development projects

Here you will find a list of our current and completed projects. We are proud to say that we have already successfully acquired research funding and will continue to do so thanks to our non-profit status and our "open-innovation approach". This provides us with a degree of continuity.

In addition, we try to fill information gaps with our own projects and dispel myths through transparent data collection and communication. These types of projects are financed exclusively through sponsorship and donations.

Microplastics and Textiles – a state description

One of the main sources of direct microplastic entry into the environment is through the wearing and washing of synthetic textiles. This accounts for approximately 35% of the microplastics entering the global marine environment every year, amounting to between 200,000 and 500,000 tonnes. There are multiple pathways and options to target the unintentional release of microplastics from textiles, from the design through to the use and disposal, that must be considered. The European Commission has identified the textile value chain as a key priority in the EU Circular Economy Action Plan and proposed key actions and measures that are set to be finalized by the end of this year. This blog will provide an overview of issues related to the synthetic textiles, the proposed pathways to target unintentional microplastic release, along with the associated challenges that must be addressed.
