The European Outdoor Group (EOG) has announced the next phase of its plans as part of the ongoing Outdoor Industry Microfibre Consortium project. The latest research venture, conducted in collaboration with biov8tion and University of Leeds, is seeking to address the issues surrounding microfibre pollution.

The consortium has confirmed it is to start work on an infographic and roadmap, alongside an applied research project; all designed to facilitate a shared understanding of the environmental issues posed by microfibres pollution and to try to find viable solutions for the textile industry to implement. 

This follows the Ecotextile News story that research conducted recently by the organisation discovered that continued exposure to UV light can lower the tenacity of some polyester fibres by up to 42 per cent.
