Working in niche and emerging areas of sustainable innovation, biov8tion provides specialist support in topic areas such as Fibre Fragmentation and Biobased Resources.
Innovation is greater than purely just an idea, but the combination of creativity, strategy, technology, process, collaboration, communication and ultimately delivery.
For many organisations not resourced in all areas of sustainable innovation, work can become frustrating with concepts never commercialised or return on investment met.
biov8tion works with you, providing a wealth of sustainability experience, strategy, external capacity and networks, to enable you to realise and commercialise your ideas when first stepping into sustainable innovation, and later as you deepen your journey.
There is a developing landscape of research identifying fibre fragmentation from both natural and synthetic textiles, as a contributor to environmental pollution.
Although negative impacts to marine life have been known for some time, there is growing concern to human health.
This is a complex topic, not simply attributed to textile composition. The challenges lie in the interconnectivity of all the unique factors that make up a fabric, including but not exclusive of raw materials, type of yarn and fabric construction. Brands are at risk from negative media exposure, until they are able to apply research to new product solutions.
We work within the framework of The Microfibre Consortium to facilitate the development of practical solutions for the textile industry to minimise fibre fragmentation.
The UN forecasts that global population will rise to 8.1 billion by 2025. To support this, there is an urgency to switch to renewable resources and work within circular systems to enable our clothing to remain in use for longer.
The textile industry is currently reliant on oil based synthetics, which are price competitive and readily available. Switching to bio based and renewable raw materials requires a shift in approach to design, sourcing, costing and manufacturing which is not currently fully mature.
By demystifying the topic sticking points, we enable you to see the big picture and how you can play your part. Through the tools and resources we provide, you are able to engage your decision makers in support of your transition to the use of renewable resources.
