Duratex is an Interreg V France-Wallonie-Flanders project looking for ecofriendly water and oil repellent textiles. The European Life project Flarex assesses alternative environmental friendly flame retardants (FR) to be used in interior textiles.
Both projects organise a workshop focusing on the legislation and industrial use of alternative FR and repellent agents in textiles. The workshop includes an interactive session (World Café) to discuss the challenges and opportunities of using FR and repellents complying to REACH.
A project co-funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme within the NMP thematic area.
