In the intervening years an increasing amount of momentum has gathered behind research projects to determine the extent of the problem and attempt to formulate a solution. Oeko-Tex, along with its industry partners, are currently pursuing their own answers to the questions which hang over the textile industry surrounding microplastic pollution through a new project that looks at measuring microplastic fibres in textile effluents The latest findings of the project are set to be announced and discussed at Texworld Paris in February.
