industry learn about the causes, impact and
treatment of wastewater. The free online
resource is a hub for communicating the
business case for wastewater treatment and
integrates new standards, knowledge and
resources across all parts of the textile supply
chain. For more information, visit www.
sustainabilityconsortium.org.

AATCC offers new scholarships
Two new scholarships will enable AATCC
Foundation Inc. to provide more funding
to students in textile and related fields. The
new scholarships are the NCTO Paul T. O'Day
Scholarship, created to honor Paul O'Day,
who served as president of the American
Fiber Manufacturers Association, and the
Percy W. Woodruff Jr. Textile Manufacturing
Scholarship, which will be awarded to nontraditional textile students. For the 2020-
2021 academic year, the AATCC Foundation
will award more than 35 scholarships and
fellowships worth nearly $150,000.

ASTM establishes Gumpertz award
ASTM International has established a new
industry award in honor of Simpson Gumpertz
& Heger (SGH) co-founder Werner H.
Gumpertz. Gumpertz, a pioneer of the modern
practice of building technology, died in 2017
after a long and accomplished career. The

Werner H. Gumpertz Award will be presented
annually to an engineer, scientist or architect
who has made significant professional contributions to the field of building technology or
to solving multidisciplinary technical problems in the construction industry.

Polyester fiber market growth
According to a report by Global Market
Insights Inc., polyester fiber market revenue
is anticipated to cross $190 billion by 2026.
The report asserts growth will be due to rapid
urbanization around the globe and more
polyester being used in home textiles and
apparel. E-commerce and a booming home
decor industry are expected to augment the sale
of polyester fibers for carpets and apparel. The
fast-fashion and garment sector is projected to
be the fastest developing sector through 2026.

New chemicals on SIN List
Chemical specialist organization ChemSec
has revealed the latest additions of industrial
chemicals on its SIN List, a compilation of
more than 900 toxic chemicals that should be
avoided in the global supply chain. The SIN
List is followed by many brands, chemical
producers and manufacturers, and the latest
additions to the list are expected to set a new
standard for sustainable chemicals management. Among the newly added substances are
perfluorinated chemicals, which are used in
products such as cooking pans, food packaging
and water-resistant clothing.

The 25th anniversary of the International
Workshop on Design and Practical Realization
of Architectural Membrane Structures-Textile
Roofs 2020-will be held May 18-20, 2020,
at the Archenhold Observatory in Berlin,
Germany. The event will combine its traditional workshop and educational formats
with several anniversary celebrations. The
event is geared toward architects and builders, designers and manufacturers, engineers,
scientists, state officers and people working
in the field of membrane architecture and
structural engineering. Visit www.textileroofs.com for information.

Yarn producers applaud import decision
U.S. polyester textured yarn producers applaud
the U.S. International Trade Commission's
final unanimous affirmative injury
determination on imports of polyester textured
yarn from China and India. On Dec. 12, 2019,
the U.S. International Trade Commission
reached the affirmative decision in the final
injury investigation on imports of polyester
textured yarn from China and India (subject
imports). As a result of the determination, the
U.S. Department of Commerce will publish
antidumping duty and countervailing duty
orders covering the subject imports.

OEKO-TEX 2020 regulations
OEKO-TEX® has updated its existing
guidelines and the valid test criteria and limit
values for its certifications and services-in
line with consistent consumer protection
and the sustainability of textiles and leather
products. Notable changes include the MADE
IN GREEN label being expanded to include
leather products and the integration of
DETOX TO ZERO in STeP by OEKO-TEX.
New regulations will come into effect on
April 1, 2020. For more information, visit
