  • Waste and Biomass Valorization
Due to the growth in world population and overall improvement of living standard, global fiber consumption has been steadily increasing in the past few decades, which leads to a higher amount of post industrial and post consumer fiber waste. This paper provides an overview on fiber and textile recycling, focusing on the case of carpets, which account for a large part of textile waste. It includes a general description of fibrous waste, statistics, material characteristics (compositions) and…

Recycling of Carpet and Textile Fibers
Most of the fibrous waste is composed of natural and synthetic polymeric materials such as cotton, polyester, nylon, polypropylene, among others. Table 1 presents the amount of fibrous waste
Reuse of polymer and fibre waste
During the production of fibres, a certain amount of waste is generated in pre-and post-spinning operations. Since almost all synthetic fibres are non-biodegradable, their disposal poses serious
