Transitioning from Fluorocarbon-Based to Fluorine-Free Durable Water Repellents
Durable water repellents (DWRs) provide many beneficial properties to textiles including resistance to rain, staining, and abrasion. But many manufacturers have been transitioning to fluorine-free DWRs where possible. Attendees will learn the basics behind different repellents, regulatory issues, and the evolving technology for increasing the ecological profile of these products.

Footprint Data for Climate Action
Specific and accurate data is essential to sustainable progress. OEKO-TEX® has developed a method for calculating the carbon and water footprint at each stage of a textile product’s life. This impact calculator is based on a two-year pilot project with in-depth research for best practices, current methods of data collection and calculation, recognized standards, proof of concept and stakeholder input. Join us to learn how the tool was developed, how data will be continuously improved and how the system can be used. We’ll discuss how we can leverage this data to lower our industry’s impact and communicate with customers.
