Lunamicro’s Moisture Management Technology Wins Techtextil Award

LunaMicro AB which has developed an innovative moisture management technology has been awarded Techtextil’s 2024 Innovation Award in the ‘New Technology’ category.

Compared to passive membranes normally used in waterproof garments, LunaMicro’s patented fabric pump technology removes moisture even when the outside environment is wet.

The technology also allows over 80 percent of the water-resistant garment to be made from recyclable materials such as natural rubber or polyester.

Additionally, it diminishes the requirement for environmentally harmful ‘forever chemicals’ such as halogenated polymers or PFAS.

“These improvements can dramatically improve the performance and sustainability of waterproof clothing and equipment,” LunaMicro said in a press release.

“This prize recognises the potential of revolutionary technology and showcases LunaMicro’s commitment to pushing boundaries of innovation within textile industry,” the Swedish company added.

The award ceremony will be held at the Techtextil trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on April 23, 2024, where the patented technology will also be exhibited.

“We are honoured and very excited to accept Techtextil’s Innovation Award acknowledging our work in the textile industry,” Nate Robinson, CEO and founder of LunaMicro said.

“This recognition underscores the uniqueness and potential of introducing cutting-edge technology into textile products,” Robinson added.

“Our technology offers groundbreaking active moisture management, enhancing user safety and comfort, while promoting sustainability by reducing the reliance on harmful chemicals,” he stated.

“We think that it brings smart textiles a step further and has a lot of potential in different fields,” Dr Jan Laperre, GM at Centexbel and jury member for the Techtextil Innovation Award also said.
