    Woodhead Textiles Series No. 60

     - a key guide to best practice in sustainable production
     - includes expert reviews of current developments in recycling, sustainable production and process optimisation
     - assesses novel technologies, including new fibres and finishing techniques

    This book includes a carefully-chosen and edited selection of 23 papers from the Ecotextile 2004 Conference held at the University of Bolton. Ecotextiles is divided into five main parts. Part 1 deals with recycling and use of waste as raw materials in such areas as clothing and carpet manufacture. Part 2 discusses sustainability and eco-design with papers on improved design, use of sustainable fibres and manufacturing techniques. Part 3 reviews sustainable development and renewables, including discussion of topics such as composites made from textile waste. Part 4 considers waste management in such areas as dyeing and effluent treatment. The final part of the book assesses novel technologies, including new fibres and finishing techniques.

    As pressure from governments and consumers continues to grow, Ecotextiles will provide a valuable reference for the textile industry on best practice in sustainable production.
