In 2018, the EOG, the European Outdoor Group, was given the opportunity to join a research project run by the Swedish research organisation RISE. After initial research that evaluated the possibilities and potential effectiveness of using RFID tags in garments, it was established, that there were a number of areas where the technology could deliver major opportunities, most particularly in sustainability. The EOG is therefore delighted to be part of this next phase of research to build knowledge and competence in this exciting technology.
The use of digital information carriers integrated into garments has the potential to greatly increase future traceability throughout the supply chain, but also to facilitate subsequent processes and lay the foundation for circularity – which information is necessary and why? A system based on RFID-tags, with multiple functionalities responding to the needs of different actors in the textile value chain is a key enabler in the future vision of a circular economy.
EOG would therefore like to invite you to a webinar with RISE on the subject of
RFID tag technology. In this webinar, we will dig a little deeper into areas
such as chemical use in the textile value chain and chemical profiles of
recycled materials, recycling technologies under development and the potential
of digital information carriers. In addition – existing and upcoming
legislation and how it can drive development. The webinar will give insights
into ongoing activities as well as coming initiatives on European level.
We will be holding two webinars to accommodate for time zones.
