During September, Michael Gerakios attended the Dornbirn man-made fibres Congress in Austria. The event is positioned as the leading European platform for the presentation of fiber innovations with industrial relevance. Of interest to TTNA members is its focus on the future viability of a fibre and textile industry based on sustainability and innovation as well as communication with upcoming generations. Technical streams were focused on the frontiers of fibers and textiles for transport, medical, filtration and environmental applications; and fiber innovations including unconventional fibre applications. Michael will deliver a short presentation on his experience and the technical papers of relevance to the Australian industry.
