  1. 1. Fibres from agricultural hemp waste

    University essay from Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi

    Author : Ella Kärkkäinen; Åsa Älgbrant; Simon Kronberg; [2021]
    Keywords : Hemp fibres; hemp residue; unretted hemp; nonwoven hemp;

    Abstract : There is an increasing demand for natural fibres in the textile industry as a consequence of the negative impact of the industry on the environment. Svensk Hampaindustri (SHI) is currently growing hemp in Sweden for its seeds. This leaves residue in the form of hemp stems that could be processed for textile products. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investigation of the binding effect of fungal fiber (grown on apple pomace) in the formation of lyocell nonwoven textiles and their potential applications

    University essay from Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi

    Author : Xue Luo; [2021]
    Keywords : lyocell; nonwovens; binder; filamentous fungi; wet-laid; fungal microfibers; apple pomace; cellulose;

    Abstract : This project combines nonwoven technology, biological technology and food waste management and seeks for this feasibility to use fungal microfiber (FM) as a binder for lyocell pro-duction and the characterizations for possible applications. Rhizopus delemar was cultivated apple pomace in liquid-state fermentation to obtain mycelia biomass. READ MORE

  3. 3. A novel and feasible material recycling technique for end-of-life textiles as All-Cellulose Composites (ACCs)

    University essay from Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi

    Author : Belinda Johansson; [2021]
    Keywords : all-cellulose composites; end-of-life textiles; denim fabrics; ionic liquid; mechanical properties; sustainability;

    Abstract : Today’s consumption of textiles generates a large volume of textile waste. Therefore, it is needed to find solutions to re-use the textile waste rather recycling fibers into new fibers. Research using pre- and post-consumer textiles in composites is ongoing and an interesting direction. READ MORE

  4. 4. Preparation of films and nonwoven composites from fungal microfibers grown in bread waste

    University essay from Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi
