The BioTex FieldLab represents an open innovation center for biobased polymers. In this center the goal is to illustrate the entire textile process chain from the granules to the textile prototypes.
The process chain starts with the optimization of the biopolymers. There the focus is on the spinnability and the end product properties. The Chain goes over to production of filament yarn and the development of an appropriate process. After optimization of the process, the yarn is textured if necessary and then further processed to textile prototypes. In the BioTex FieldLab we can displayed, with the help of our partners, the complete textile process chain. The individual links of the supply chain can be flexibly optimized. It can quickly respond to the needs of our industry partners and an optimal product can be achieved on a joint basis. This chain for biobased polymers is unique and is therefore particularly innovative.
Furthermore, it is only by considering the entire process chain to establish possible new polymers in the industry. The BioTex FieldLabd is an important contribution to bring biopolymers from research in to industry. Further fields of application and process chains can be so easily achieved in the future.
