Textile heroes in danger
The German textile industry is a world leader in the development of protective equipment for firefighters, police, rescue services, doctors and nurses. But whether the men and women working for the fire department, the police or in the healthcare sector can continue to be equipped with protective suits that provide them with optimum protection is questionable. This is because the EU Commission wants to ban textiles that are finished with fluorocarbon. Many heroes of our everyday life are in danger!
