InnovhubSSI, as a partner of the Enterprise Europe Network, in collaboration with FAST, Federtessile and CNA Lombardia, organizes the event "New formaldehyde and fluoro-free textile finishes - Improved safety at work and environmental sustainability in newly developed products for the textile sector". The aim of the event is to highlight the risks for workers, environment and final consumers from the use of some chemicals in the textile sector and to make companies aware of effective safety measures. Best practice cases will be proposed as examples of strategic choices that can enhance safety for the textile sector, such as the replacement of formaldehyde, a versatile and widely used substance, which since 2015 has been officially classified as a carcinogen. 

The event is addressed to companies in textile/chemical sector interested in new and safer approches able to guarantee workers and consumers health.

Participation is free.
