Why a biosynthetics round table?
Textile Exchange’s Biosynthetics Working Group kicked off in 2016 and the inaugural in-person meeting in Hamburg attracted much interest from attendees wanting to learn more about this lesser-known fiber. Biosynthetics form part of Textile Exchange’s portfolio of preferred fibers and materials due to their production from either partial or 100% renewable feedstock’s/ raw materials.
The focus of the Biosynthetics Working Group to date has been the creation of a microsite that will gather and synthesize available information and resources on Biosynthetics with the goal of enabling this relatively new material to become a larger part of company’s PFM portfolios.
Join the Biosynthetics Round Table meeting in Milan this October to learn more. Further information and an agenda for this meeting will be available soon.
Definition of Biosynthetics
A biosynthetic material consists of polymers made from renewable resources, either wholly or partly. Visit aboutbiosynthetics.org for further information.
In January 2018, Textile Exchange’s Biosynthetics Working Group launched a new microsite, AboutBiosynthetics.org, along with an accompanying “Quick Guide to Biosynthetics“. These resources aim to demystify biosynthetics and provide soundly based information and market intelligence for businesses and interested consumers alike.
