Textile Exchange’s Biosynthetics Round Table was established in 2016 during the Textile Sustainability Conference in Hamburg, Germany. The aim of the Biosynthetics Round Table is to develop a framework to assess biosynthetics and to define preferred biosynthetics in order to support the industry to make informed decisions.
Biosynthetics is part of Textile Exchange’s preferred fiber & material scope due to its potential to offer a replacement made from renewables rather than fossil fuel-based feedstocks. The Biosynthetics Round Table, driven by the priorities of its industry members, aims to be the forum for organizations to discuss opportunities and challenges we face as an industry, including the sustainability of feedstock production and innovations in future feeder materials.
