STFI: EU-Project BIOFIBROCAR with STFI participation

Melt spun fibres based on biopolymers for application in automotive interiors.
 
Aim of the project BIOFIBROCAR (coordinated by the Spanish research institute AITEX) is the development of textile fabrics (wovens and nonwovens) for car interior made from biologically degradable polylactide (PLA) fibres which will substitute the currently used polyester fibres. The fibre production is done from re-growing material. Using special additives, improvement of product properties (such as abrasion resistance and flame retardancy) should be achieved to fulfil the material parameters required in the automotive industry. STFI is mainly involved in the textile material selection and the specification of product requirements as well as in testing the adapted PLA fibres in different nonwoven structures. A joint presentation of this EU-project will be presented at the DORNBIRN Man-Made Fibre Congress in September 2014. For more information: www.biofibrocar.aitex.es

SAXION: Teaming up for Smart Textile Services

Integrate existing knowledge from the separate domains of textile (soft materials), technology and services.
 
Within the framework of the Dutch Creative Industry Scientific Program (CRISP, 2011), research institutes, textile and technology companies and service providers have started to create the structure that will support the development of innovative Product Service Systems in the context of Smart Textile Services (STS). Smart Textile Services can give the industry an added value, which enables it to keep its competitive position in the world. The goal of STS CRISP is to integrate existing knowledge from the separate domains of textile (soft materials), technology and services.  All results and approaches will be presented in the beginning of 2015. Announcements will follow via the ETP newsletter.
