From fungi, new colours for textiles
In order to produce new colours with a low environmental impact, ALBINI_next has chosen to collaborate with BGreen Technologies, the innovative Lombardy-based start-up that brings biotechnology in the Italian industrial context.
At the end of this process, the following tests are conducted:
- quality control of the pigment produced, in which the identification of the pigment, its stability and concentration are verified
- quality control of dyed yarn
The project is currently in a research phase: ALBINI_next is evaluating how this type of dye behaves and performs, before eventually going forward with its industrialisation.
This partnership came into being with the support of Kilometro Rosso, Europe’s leading innovation district in the field of research and technology transfer, which today is the venue for over 75 companies, laboratories and research centres.
