FRAM Seminar: Chemicals management in practice in real textile value chains

Research profile seminar

This presentation will highlight the complexity of the textile value chain regarding its chemistry, but also with regard to the use of energy, soil and not least water, where all these resources are intimately linked to the chemical issue. Finally, it will be described how to effectively perform chemical management in the value chain as a textile retail company with remote production in completely different parts of the world.

The global textile industry is among the most chemical-intensive and complex in transboundary trade and production on our planet. The textile industry is characterized by a number of different sectors, from fashion, outdoor to technical products, such as protective clothing, that characterises differences in material and chemical use among these different sectors.
Through this diversity of sectors and textile products, a wide range of quality and technical requirements are required, which is reflected in the complex use and function of various chemicals throughout the textile value chain.

Lecturer: Stefan Posner is a polymer and textile chemist with over 30 years¿ experience in research on chemicals in textiles and polymeric materials in cooperation with international companies, authorities and academia in several international projects over the years. Stefan is since many years working with legal preparatory work on chemicals for UNEP Stockholm Convention, EU Commission and several National Authorities and is deeply involved in research to substitute hazardous chemicals with a certain focus on highly fluorinated substances and flame retardants but other groups of hazardous chemicals have been in focus in the past.
