Assessment of bio-degradability of bio-synthetic fabrics
Author(s): Divyansha Sharma, Chanchal and Amita Walia
Sustainability, industrial ecology, eco-efficiency, and green chemistry are guiding the development of the next generation of materials, products, and processes. With advancement of science & technology, products beyond our present perception can be produced. In the concerned paper innovations in fibers being called as bio-degradable has been discovered. Five different bio-synthetic fabrics were assessed for their bio-degradable properties. Soil burial test and anti-microbial colony reduction test were performed. All the fabrics showed the bio-degradable properties which supports that the bio- fibers are environmental friendly fibers so it has been more demand in future. The development of special fibers is the consequence of merging fundamentals scientific and technical knowledge, as there is a quest for high performance fibres.
