Po.In.Tex - University Master in Fiber Design and Textile Processes in Biella, Italy

Sustainability, Technology, Design, Internet of Things: these are the key words of the 1st level University Master in "Fiber Design and Textile Processes", designed by Città Studi Biella and POLI.design, with the goal to create new textile professional roles capable of combining innovative skills and design. Roles, which are necessary today due to the sector’s evolution and strongly requested by companies.

Starting in October 2018 and completely in English, the Master looks at textiles with a completely new perspective, starting from Industry 4.0, characterized by smart, inclusive and sustainable industrial processes that have seen the technical textile sector among the most dynamic and rapidly evolving sectors of all time.

ITM - TU Dresden: Multi-scale simulation of textile structures and processes

At the ITM, intensive research is carried out on the modeling of structures and processes along the entire textile chain. By means of multi-scale modeling and simulation, a deep understanding of material and processes is achieved. For this purpose, multi-scale finite element models are developed and validated for woven, braided, and knitted fabrics.
The simulation results provide textile constructions according to the requirements for a subsequent structural analysis and further development of the textile products and processes. In addition, artificial neural networks are used to investigate, evaluate and optimize the influence of manufacturing parameters on the structural and physical properties of textiles.

IWTO: The impact of textiles and washing methods in microfibre pollution

A major report on microplastics science confirms that microfibres are escaping waste-water treatment plants and ending up in the food chain. In fact, it is estimated that around 30% of all microplastics in marine environments come from synthetic clothing, with that figure expected to grow.
While the full extent of on the environment is yet to be fully understood, current research suggests that different textiles and washing methods contribute to the spread of microfibre pollution.
This helps demonstrate the eco-credentials of natural fibres, and is proof that wearing well-made clothes and washing them less helps reduce microfibre pollution.

ITA RWTH Aachen at Hannover Trade Fair

Hanover, 23 - 27 April 2018, Germany: The ITA presented a longboard deck made of natural fibre-reinforced plastic (NRP) at the stand of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi). Using natural fibres represents an ecological alternative to resource-intensive reinforcing materials such as glass fibres.
In cooperation with the Institute of Polymer Materials and Plastics Technology at Clausthal University of Technology, the ITA investigates the potential of highly oriented natural fibre fabrics for structural fibre composite applications as part of the HyPer-NFP (High-Performance Natural Fibre Reinforced Plastics) project.
