THE GREEN MATCH PROJECT: Innovation and R&D to reach sustainability in the textile industry
Framis Italia Spa, in association with the State University of Milan, the company IMA srl, that deals with chemical products for the production of synthetic leathers and the private research centre “Centrocot”, one of the main reference laboratories in the textile and clothing industry, is the leader and promoter of the project Green Match.
This project aims to research, develop and apply new ground-breaking solutions in the field of polyurethane production setting sustainability as the main objective in the textile industry.
The project also aims to redefine completely the production of polyurethane-based films, tapes and laminated fabrics avoiding solvents and using innovative processes of coating and extrusion.
Green Match exploits local and excellent skills of the territory to adopt a new set of solutions. These solutions are a combination of technologies that allow environmental sustainability in the manufacturing industry without compromising the aesthetic side of the final product. In other words, the final product is certified in terms of sustainability.
The project is subsidized by the resources of the fund POR FESR 2014-2020 – Agreements for the research and innovation of the Regione Lombardia.
