E-Textiles Network Webinar – Sustainability of E-Textiles

Presented by Dr Russel Torah, University of Southampton

With an ever increasing population and the rise of consumer culture around the world there is a need for all products to be more sustainable and recyclable to reduce their environmental impact.  This is particularly true with the development of e-textiles; a combination of two of the largest waste producers in the world, the textiles and electronics industry.  This webinar will discuss a number of the challenges of sustainability of e-textiles including the new materials being researched, the international standards and strategies from the key players in this field.

This webinar took place on Friday 24th September 1.30pm (BST).
