A research at Wageningen University & Research shows
that there are definite possibilities to create raw materials for clothing
fibres from waste streams from rice, maize, bananas, pineapples and sugar cane.

The research was carried out at Wageningen University
& Research together with the Institute for Sustainable Communities and the
World Resources Institute due to the request of The Laudes Foundation as an
alternative to fibres derived from fossil fuels.  At present 60% of all clothing are produced
in the same way. This research provides a promising glimpse into the first
steps towards sustainable textiles.

In the research report “Spinning Future Threads”, the
researchers have therefore included a roadmap for cooperation and innovation in
the fashion and food industries.

They looked at whether there
are useful residual streams (waste) in agriculture in South and Southeast Asia
that can be used to produce natural fibres. They also looked at the technology
needed to do this.

According to Paulien
Harmsen, Wageningen University & Research

producing fibres from
agricultural waste is possible, but  the
key is to work together.
