11th International Textile Coating & laminating Congress 2022
During the last decades, technological innovations were often too empirical and dominated by fundamental craftsmanship. Moreover, there is a growing demand for textile products produced using sustainable technologies. New emerging technologies will change and contribute to rethinking/re-inventing the production chain, using fewer chemicals, reducing natural resources (water, energy) smart/local deposition of new functionalities ànd applying new chemistry (polymers, additives). All this will revolutionize the actual coating/laminating industry and will create tailored-made solutions for customers, end-users, and new end-uses. The congress focuses on all you must know about the state-of-the-art, developments, innovations, and prospects for the coating and laminating industry.
Advanced and proven solutions presented at the Renewable Materials Conference
The unique Renewable Materials Conference 2022, held in Cologne, Germany, from 10 to 12 May, attracted over 400 participants to learn about the latest developments in bio- and CO2-based chemicals, plastics, and other materials as well as advanced recycling technologies in search of non-fossil solutions. Winners of the innovation award “Renewable Material of the Year 2022” showcased the electrochemical transformation of CO2 (Twelve Benefit Corporation), a natural polymer for paper and cardboard coating (Lactips), and material-to-material molecular recycling of plastic waste (Eastman).

CIRCULAR.Tèxtils.cat Hackathon: creating new solutions for textile waste
On April 27th and 30th, CIRCULAR.Tèxtils.cat Hackathon took place, coordinated by AEI Tèxtils and FITEX, with financial support from the Waste Agency of Catalonia. The objective was to generate potential circularity roads using textile waste from AEI Tèxtils members.
20 design and engineering students had the opportunity to get acquainted with the industrial environment of the textile ecosystem hand in hand with companies and experts in the sector while working on the challenge of generating new opportunities for textile waste.
The winning team was awarded a cash prize and an internship as a company member of the cluster.
