The collaborative effort includes over 30 partners focusing on research of bio-based raw materials to find credible alternatives to traditional plastics. The BIOTEXFUTURE projects intends to apply the use of biopolymers to the entire textile supply chain with the ambition of a bioeconomy. Adidas is co-leading the program with RWTH Aachen University and has been since November 2019.
