Sustainability Challenges of the Textiles, Dyeing and Finishing Industries: Opportunities for Innovation

March 30, 2017 @ 2:00pm ET

Bolts of Fabric

What new fibres and what novel dyeing and finishing techniques will the future hold? The field of chemical processing of textiles, which includes dyeing and finishing, is constantly evolving, with the primary objectives being to improve aesthetic and functional properties of textiles. Join Richard Blackburn from the University of Leeds as he discusses the techniques being scrutinized so that textiles become more efficient from the technical, economic and ecological perspective.

Recorded Webinars

Systems Thinking to Re-Imagine Chemistry

Peter Mahaffy (The King's University) and Alain Krief (IOCD) will explore their premise that “the practice and overarching mission of chemistry need a major overhaul to be fit for purpose in the 21st Century and beyond.” What can practicing chemists and chemistry educators do to help our profession embrace more of a systems perspective—and play a more meaningful and visible role in addressing multiple unfolding global challenges?
