Textile mass-personalisation and process-automation, integrating the textile value-chain to deliver scalable ‘Virtual Giga Factory’ production of biodegradable woven textiles.

Project description

Digital technologies for the textile industry

The textile industry is composed of mainly SMEs and self-employed professionals. The industry faces difficulties concerning planning and scalable production of biodegradable materials and the production of bio-based yarns. As a result, small players struggle in the face of further modernisation, while big players focus on chemical-based materials, planning high-scale production. The EU-funded NaturalDyers project aims to disrupt the traditional value chain and relation structures by resorting to digital technologies (connectivity, cloud platforms, internet of things, smart factories). The project envisages transforming the way the textile industry is organised, redefining the bargaining relationships across the entire supply chain and promoting organised mass production of biodegradable fibres.
