Products that are produced by various industries such as agriculture, food, mining, chemistry, and textile cannot meet the needs of humankind since the world's population continues to grow exponentially. Furthermore, the reduction in natural resources forced researchers to produce new synthetic products by utilization of technology and led them to study recycling of existing natural resources. This study compares some properties of yarns and fabrics produced by virgin and recycled polyester and… 

A Comparative Study of Physical Properties of Yarns and Fabrics Produced from Fresh and Recycled Fibres

Recycling is the process of producing new products with additional qualities from old materials which are no more in use. Furthermore, the decreasing natural resources forced researchers to produce

Abstract The use of recycled materials has become increasingly important in both the textile and apparel industry. Recycling means the breakdown of raw materials from existing products and the re-use

A study on the suitability of which yarn number to use for recycle polyester fiber

Abstract Recycling and reuse of materials is not new to the textile and apparel industry. Recycling refers to the breakdown of product into its raw materials in order for the raw material to be

Investigation of tensile strength and elongation properties of chenille upholstery fabrics including recycling polyester yarns

Every day, millions of plastic and polyethylene terephthalate bottles are being thrown away by people. This leads not only to the reduction of landfills and increase in environmental problems but


This investigation was conducted to produce open end rotor yarns from blends of card wastes, recycled fabrics and Giza 90 low grade FGF cotton in the spinning mill of North Africa Spinning Company El

Investigation of the quality properties of open-end spun recycled yarns made from blends of recycled fabric scrap wastes and virgin polyester fibre

Abstract Recycled fibre obtained from fabric scrap wastes is characterized by its low quality properties in terms of inhomogeneous fibre type and non-uniformly distributed short fibre lengths, both

Utilization of Cotton Spinning Mill Wastes in Yarn Production

Efficient use of natural resources and utilization of recoverable wastes are getting more and more important day by day since recovering wastes have both economic and environmental benefits. As the

A Comparative Study on Mechanic and Structural Properties of Recycled Pet (R-Pet) and Viscose Blended Yarns

: Environmental pollution caused by plastic bottles is shown as one of the biggest environmental disasters of recent years. Not only in the form of plastic bottles, but the microplastics formed from

The Effect Of Recycled Polyester (rPET) Filament Fiber Properties On Various Woven Fabric Performance Properties

In order to reduce the requirement of waste eliminating and environmental pollution, recycling seems to be a suitable solution. In this study, polyester fibers with three different number of filament



Producing Medium Count Yarns from Recycled Fibers with Friction Spinning

Yams production from recycled fibers (RF) is limited, and spinners often prefer to produce coarse yams from these fibers. In this research, we attempt to produce middle- count twp-component and

At textile mills, the fiber fly generation is a big concern almost at every stages of the production including knitting and weaving operations. Therefore, it is not a surprise that the fiber fly

Recent Developments in the Chemical Recycling of PET

Poly(ethylene terephthalate), more commonly known as PET in the packaging industry and generally referred to as ‘polyester‘ in the textile industry, is an indispensable material with immense

Effect of cotton waste and spinning parameters on rotor yarn quality

Abstract In this paper, we study the effect of cotton wastes and different spinning parameters on the rotor yarn quality. Statistical models are established to predict a total quality index and the

The study of fiber fly generation during yarn preparation for either knitting or weaving operations has attracted the attention of many researchers for decades, due to either production

Determining an Optimum Opening Roller Speed for Spinning Polyester/ Waste Blend Rotor Yarns

The opening roller, which is one of the three most important items in the OE rotor spinning system, influences yarn quality and spinning performance. In addition to the raw materials, roller speed

A study of fly generation during raising

Abstract The study of fly generation during manufacturing has attracted the attention of many workers for decades. Among all fibre properties, the fibre length has the greatest effect on the amount
