Industrial Seminar - Threading-CO2 Academy

The textile industry is the fourth largest industry in the world with the global volume of fiber production for textile manufacturing reaching 110 million metric tons in 2020. At the same time, the textile industry is one of the most polluting industries worldwide with the highest greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions corresponding to 10% of the global emissions. Threading-CO2 aims to scale-up and demonstrate its first-of-its-kind technology producing high-quality commercially viable sustainable PET textile products from CO2 waste streams at industrial scale (TRL7) using a circular manufacturing approach and running on renewable energy sources.
Project partners Digiotouch, LUT University, and City of Lappeenranta are excited to invite you to the Industrial Seminar - Threading-CO2 Academy. It is launched address the current gap in academia and industrial skills needed in the valorisation of CO/CO2 streams.
