Chemical management in textiles and the leather sector is a hotly discussed topic. Chemicals are in many textile raw materials and products which contribute towards essential areas such as material performance and longevity. However, understanding how to correctly manage chemicals within the textile supply chain is vital to help ensure overall product safety.
Last week; Chem-MAP® Chemistry Lead and Technical Manager, Georgina Mawer, and AQM Environmental Advisor & Training Manager, Francesca Giometti, presented to a group of Spanish brands and retailers around the importance of implementing robust chemical management systems.
The seminar, organised by Eurofins, entitled ‘Addressing the Challenge of Chemical Management in the Textile Industry’, was held at the ACOTEX offices in Madrid. The seminar overviewed the key requirements for manufacturers and brands to eliminate the use of hazardous substances from the textile supply chain.
Delegates from these internationally recognised brands and retailers welcomed the information delivered by chemical experts and found the seminar to be both enlightening and thorough.
