Technical Textiles Nonwovens Association, Australia is holding the third of its kind sustainability forum on October 15, at the National Centre for Sustainability at the Swinburne University of Technology in Australia.

The main agenda of the forum is to explore the ways by which textile waste can be captured and channeled to produce energy and/or regenerated textile products.

Delivering the keynote address is Professor Mohammad Taherzadeh, School of Engineering, University of Borås, Sweden, under whose guidance PhD students found a method to produce 500 grams of ethanol from a kilo of denim.

The presentation of Professor Mohammad Taherzadeh will outline the future for garments at the end of the lifecycle that would otherwise have been sent to landfills.

Studies indicate that un-recovered textile waste, which includes factory fabric waste and garments, disposed off by people, account for approximately 4 percent of the content of landfill.

According to experts, textile wastes are valuable sources of raw materials that can be re-generated into saleable and usable products.

Mr Michael Coates, MD of I.N.C will also deliver a lecture on a process that can take mixed textile waste and turn it into something useful and Christine Wardle, Chairperson of the EfW Division of the Waste Management Association, will provide the context to potential recovery of energy from textile waste.
