Novel methods to recycle cotton textile wastes

Feb '10
History of cotton and textiles is not only, the history of the growth of modern industry in India, but, in a sense, it might be considered the history of India itself. The land holds great pride, for its excellence in cotton cultivation, spinning and weaving. Among the total waste from textile, the largest part comes from the spinning mills, most particularly, from the blow room.

The total cotton fiber consumption is estimated to be 26 lakh tons per year, of which approximately 2,10,000 tons of cotton dust (micro dust, a non-saleable waste) is produced during yarn manufacture. The problems of microdust have now assumed serious consideration, since it has no resale value. It also pollutes the atmosphere and if not degraded they get accumulated that leads to infectious diseases and spreads out foul odour to the environment.

Willow waste can be collected and decomposed into highly beneficial and valuable compost, which can be used as a supplement to increase soil fertility, thereby creating home for millions of micro-organisms. Use of natural fertilizers, compost and soil amendment techniques have enabled to make growing organic cotton a viable enterprise and thus the concept can be termed as need of the hour.
