The TTNA launches a program on textile lightweighting technology
September 25, 2012

Lifecycle thinking is being applied to identify where it’s important to lightweight, and to determine other design strategies to reduce material use and the embodied energy within products. In recognition that lightweighting is being applied to all manufactured goods - from packaging (including plastic bottles) to soldier’s uniforms - the TTNA is conducting an analysis of fibre and textile lightweighting technology on manufactured componentry that will conclude with recommendations for integration into fibre and textile industry through education.Click at this link for more information on the TTNA Lightweighting program.
