A Management Tool for Microplastics from Textile Production Process
In this project, we will establish a testing method for evaluating microplastic release from different textile material (polyester/recycle polyester, nylon, and acrylic) in textile manufacturing processes such as yarn and fabric production and propose a management protocol in reducing microplastic release in the manufacturing processes.
Microplastics have become a serious problem that threatens the environment and human, because they are found in bottled water and table salt, entering the food chain, potentially endangering human health. Plastic fibres from textiles are referred to as the seventh major source of such contaminants. As most of the studies focus on of the release of microfibres during textile washing process, this project focuses on the evaluation of their formation and release during the textile manufacturing processes.
