Eurofins | BLC achieves The Microfibre Consortium Accreditation for testing

Eurofins | BLC is pleased to announce that they have achieved accreditation to perform testing against the The Microfibre Consortium (TMC) approved test method, which considers the impact of fibre release during domestic laundering.

 

Eurofins has also joined The Microfibre Consortium, a multi-member group, comprised of upstream and downstream stakeholders, concerned with understanding the environmental impact of fibre fragmentation within the textile sector.

 

The ongoing environmental impacts associated with fibre release into the environment focuses on accumulation in ecosystems, resulting in pollution, disruption to food chains, and health/toxicological concerns. Microfibres (in particular the subcategory microplastics), are of particular concern as this problem increases, although the long-term implications are still not fully understood.

 

In offering The Microfibre Consortium approved test method, Eurofins | BLC will contribute towards gathering information on behalf of customers and group members, with the long-term goal to collaboratively collate data, understand the scale of the situation, and address ways forward to reduce the global impact resultant of fibre fragmentation.

 

If you are a TMC member or if you are interested to understand how your textiles my fragment during laundering, please get in touch to discuss further with our team: [email protected]
