Framework:  Interreg Central Europe
Duration of the project: 01.07.2017 – 30.06.2020

Aim of the project:

ENTeR focuses on waste reduction to prevent depletion of non-renewable resources in the textile industry.

The approach of the project is oriented to the management and optimisation of waste, in a life cycle design (or eco design) perspective.
