Eurofins Softlines & Leather have launched a white paper on the findings from our microplastics shedding quantification services.  You are welcome to download the findings https://www.eurofins.com/textile-leather/white-paper.

Shedding of microplastics from synthetic textiles during domestic laundry has been identified, in a study, as a key source of the primary microplastics found in oceans. However, given the lack of industry standards and regulation on textile-related microplastics release, it is challenging for the industry to measure its real impact and look for meaningful solutions.

In this white paper, Eurofins have summarised findings from their in-house microplastics shedding quantification services in the hope of supporting the development of impactful solutions to this microscopic challenges. An introduction to microplastics and its potential harmful impacts to us and the environment are detailed too.
