NIRI at Eco TLC General Assembly

NIRI's Dr Andrew Hewitt will be participating at the 2016 Eco TLC General Assembly in Paris on June 10th. The event looks to share technical innovations with the organisation's members in apparel, household textiles and footwear.

NIRI will be discussing wear2, a novel sewing thread co-developed with C-Tech Innovation, which can be triggered to disassemble on command. This allows sewn textiles to be partially or completely disassembled quickly, easily and cheaply at end-of-life or for remanufacture or repair.

More information about wear2 can be found at www.niri.technology/case_studies/wear-2
