Textile and other closely related industries today have an important challenge when it comes to R&D and production on an environmentally friendly and social responsible way. The textile industry has long suffered a bad reputation, but there is now a change of paradigm. More and more actors put sustainability on their agenda.
Within Smart Textiles we priority the environment and work active to integrate this in all parts of our activity. For us, durability, life time, quality and function are also important concepts for sustainable development.
All projects within the frame of Smart Textiles seek to form a method to predict future influence on the environment by a planned activity or product.
For assistance with environment expertise, there is TEKO, Waste Refinery at the Swedish Technichal Institute of Research (SP), to name a few.
Smart Textiles follows University of Borås plan for sustainable development.
