Fiber Fragmentation Summit to focus on development of textile fibers


To be held online from March 23 to 26, 2021, the inaugural Fiber Fragmentation Summit 2021 in partnership with Planet Textiles will focus on three areas: measurement, science: and development of textile fibers. The four day period of the summit will convene global apparel and textiles brands, supply chain partners, legislators, NGOs, academics and other thought leaders for the next round of cross discipline presentations, discussions and planning ahead.

Senior research scientist Andy Booth from SINTEF, one of Europe’s largest independent research organization will look at the UV degradation of synthetic textile fibers in aqueous environments, while Heidi Sanborn, Executive Director of the National Stewardship Action Council will talk about the current state of play with regard to US policy and legislation on this issue.

On behalf of the AATCC, Heather Elliot will examine testing methodology for fiber fragmentation and shedding, and Dr Jan Berenger from the Hohenstein Institute will outline the current understanding around the size and characterisation of fiber loss from textiles.
