About this book

This book is part of a five-volume set that explores sustainability in textile industry practices globally. Case studies are provided that cover the theoretical and practical implications of sustainable textile issues, including environmental footprints of textile manufacturing, consumer behavior, eco-design in clothing and apparels, supply chain sustainability, the chemistry of textile manufacturing, waste management and textile economics. The set will be of interest to researchers, engineers, industrialists, R&D managers and students working in textile chemistry, economics, materials science, and sustainable consumption and production. 

This volume comprehensively covers the various sustainable natural materials used in textiles that originate from raw materials sourcing. The book discusses agricultural production systems and standards for the development of sustainable textile fibers, the effects of chemical surface modification methods on the properties of textile fibers, and how antibacterial and antifungal textiles can be manufactured using natural resources.
