MIDWOR-LIFE

MIDWOR-LIFE-Mitigation of Environmental Impact caused by DWOR textile finishing chemicals

Programme: LIFE+ of the European Commission

Participation of AEI TÈXTILS: Coordinator. Consortium formed by 6 members, including two members of AEI TÈXTILS: the Institute of Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia (CSIC) and LEITAT Technological Center.

Start date: September 2015

End date: August 2018

Objectives:

The aim of the project is to carry out an analysis of the environmental impact of the best technologies currently available that are alternative to toxic DWOR (liquid repellents), used in textile finishing processes, especially those that are fluorinated, and demonstrate which are the best alternatives: the less toxic and with lower environmental impact but at the same time those that will keep the required properties of the fabric.
