BIOVOICES Regional MML Workshop in Piemonte region: Bioeconomy as an opportunity to boost local development based on territorial resources

Currently, more than 60% of textiles are made of polyester and other petroleum-derived fibres. Consumers and environment demand for a more sustainable textile production and consumption.

Are textile industries ready to switch to green? What bio-based alternatives to petrol-based fabric are economically viable? Is it possible to replace fossil-based with bio-based polyester? What are the challenges and opportunities to design the next generation textile industry based on the innovations stemming from the circular bioeconomy?

Biovoices is organizing a Mobilisation and Mutual learning workshop in the Biella textile district (Piemonte region) to understand how the bioeconomy could reshape the textile industry and the socio-economic fabric of the district. The workshop will be in Italian.
