Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the protocol developed by LEITAT for identification and quantification of released microfibres (microfibres shedding) from textiles in washing processes. Sampling, washing, filtering and quantification methods are described. Research has been carried out on the processing steps of the textile chain value that might affect microfibres release from textiles. Based on this, new strategies based on spinning processes, mechanical and chemical solutions have been pointed out as technological solutions for microfibre release.
