LIFE-FLAREX – Mitigation of environmental impact caused by Flame Retardant textile finishing chemicals
Program: LIFE of the European Commission
Participation of AEI TÈXTILS: Coordinator. Consortium formed by 7 members, including two members of AEI TÈXTILS: the Institute of Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia (CSIC) and LEITAT Technological Center.
Start date: July 2017
End date: June 2020
The aim of the project is to carry out an analysis of the environmental impact of the best technologies currently available that are alternative to toxic Flame Retardants (FRs), used in textile finishing processes, especially those that are halogenated, and demonstrate which are the best alternatives: the less toxic and with lower environmental impact but at the same time those that will keep the required properties of the fabric.
