Fashion trash generates 92 million tonnes of garbage each year, and a Biomimicry Institute-led project hopes to find new applications for it. The two-year study aims to find innovative techniques to turn degraded garbage into fibres that may be used in fashion.
Analysis of commercially available decomposition technologies is being carried out in conjunction with HKRITA. Following the piloting of these technologies, detailed plans for future development are developed for textile waste decomposition in ametropolis, collaborating with local enterprises, community groups and the local authorities. As part of a multi-year Design for Decomposition effort, the Laudes Foundation, a non-profit focused on a healthy world, has granted the Institute 2.5 million euros.

Almost 92 million fashion trash are thrown away each year, putting people’s health and the environment at risk, thus the industry must embrace genuine decomposition and collaborate with nature to help alleviate the worst consequences of textile waste.. Through this programme, the Biomimicry collaborators are hoping to accomplish just that, with help from the Laudes Foundation.

In order to illustrate that system change may occur worldwide, it will match these techniques decomposition technologies.
Change is a possibility.
According to the Biomimicry Institute, many textile sectors feel that the finest “green methods” can only improve recovery and recycling of petroleum-based polyester. That’s why the Institute is certain that human creativity helped create the Earth so friendly to life the first time around: bacteria and enzymes; mycelium and algae.
