AATCC is excited to attend TechTextil North America in Raleigh, NC, USA! This year, AATCC will participate in a panel discussion with Hohenstein discussing Testing and Standards: The Most Efficient Path to Textile Sustainability. This session will be at 12 PM ET on August 20.

Without scientific standards to back them up, sustainability is just a buzzword. Join us for insights on how testing and certification are the most direct way to develop and verify environmental and economic goals – and let your customers know you’re serious about sustainability.
