Soilless Cotton & Non-Petroleum Polyester- Potential Opportunities for Sustainability in Textiles

Today, most of people who start off for an environmentally friendly application do more damage to sustainability compared with conventional methods. 

Therefore, this book primarily aims to understand real sustainable production. 

Secondly, it is emphasized in this book that wastes of textiles and garments constitute a major environmental load. 

At this point, it is pointed out that recycling is the best solution for humanity. 

It is highlighted that recycling presents us the opportunity to obtain “soilless cotton” and “non-petroleum polyester”. 

This book examines these two recycled fibers that have important potentials for sustainability by using arguments obtained from the author's knowledges, experiences, researches and latest literature. 

Finally, it is pointed out that habitat provided by people who do the right things for sustainability are begun to be abused by malicious ones. 

This book describes how to become true environmentalists, how real environmentalists can recognized and the main principles of sustainability and recycling in textiles. 

This book gives suggestions to producer, consumer, academicians and researchers in this field.

Usage of Recycled Cotton and Polyester Fibers for Sustainable Staple Yarn Technology

In this study, yarns were produced from cotton fibers (CO), recycled cotton fibers obtained from yarn wastes (r-CO) and fibers produced from recycled PET bottles (r-PET).

Tensile strength, elongation at break, unevenness (CVm), yarn imperfections (IPI) values and hairiness properties of these yarns were measured.

The purpose of this study was to eliminate negative characteristics of recycled cotton and polyester fibers with using together by open-end spinning system.

There was no study about r-CO/r-PET blends in the literature.

This study was also given significant findings related to these blends.

This paper obtained results which corroborate the findings of a considerable number of the previous works in CO/r-CO and CO/r-PET binary blends.

Furthermore, this study contributes to the extant literature.
