Mitigation of environmental impact caused by Flame Retardant textile finishing chemicals LIFE-FLAREX aims to carry out an analysis of the environmental impact of the best technologies currently available that are alternative to toxic Flame Retardants (FRs) used in textile finishing processes. The project will concentrate on those that are halogenated, and demonstrate which are the… Read More »


MIDWOR stands for Mitigation of environmental impact caused by DWOR textile finishing chemicals studying their non- toxic alternatives.   The main objective of the project is to mitigate the environmental, health and safety impacts of current and future Durable Water and Oil Repellents (DWOR) alternatives by analyzing their environmental impact and technical performances in order… Read More »


Mitigation of microplastics impact caused by textile washing processes   The main objective of the project is to contribute to the mitigation of the impact caused by micro and/or nanoplastic particles resulting from laundry waste water on European seas’ ecosystems, by demonstrating and implementing innovative technologies and additives for laundry processes and textile finishing treatments.… Read More »


Innovative tool to improve risk assessment and promote the safe use of nanomaterials in the textile finishing industry


The new methodology of Wool Dry Scouring (WDS) project focuses on demonstrating new technologies based on closed-loop processing and total waste recovery. In particular, wool grease (lanolin) and wool dust will be recovered as by-products. In this way, they are not discharged into the waste streams and the complex and expensive waste water treatments are… Read More »


    REACHnano aims to develop of a web based REACH Toolkit to support the chemical safety assessment of nanomaterials. The overall aim of REACHnano project is to improve the protection of environment and health from risk posed by chemicals by supporting the implementation of the REACH regulation with regard to nanomaterials, whose use raise many… Read More »
