Bio-Degradation of Dyed Cotton Fabrics
The use of softeners, stain repellents, durable press resin, and bio-degradation products on cotton fabrics may generate organic pollutants, especially when they degrade in landfill (the most common disposal method). This investment characterised potential pollutants from a range of bio-degraded treated cotton fabrics, their impacts on the soil and the potential for soil leaching.
