EOI: Re-use textile waste and its potential for composting on farm as a carbon and nutrient source
- Solution providers interested in designing a textile composting solution for the cotton industry
Industry challenge: The compostability of cotton fabric is a potential means of creating a circular system of cotton production, allowing growers to return carbon to the soil and potentially benefit soil health and functionality as well as create a sustainable method of end-of-life management for cotton clothing or waste, and an exciting marketing angle for the cotton industry as a whole.
Current opportunity: Currently there is no established method for composting cotton fibre, and its effects on soil health and functionality is unclear. This could be a means of increasing soil carbon and give growers a method of carbon sequestration on farm, although the amount of carbon that could be sequestered this way and its potential longevity in the soil is unclear.
