Fiber Science and Material Innovation
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 4 March 2024 | Viewed by 2287
It is well understood that the earth’s environment suffers considerably at the hands of human activity. Of all the industries around the world, the textile industry remains one of the most detrimental to the environment, from significant depletion and contamination of natural resources during manufacture to millions of pounds of textile waste a year. Hence, innovations in fiber and material science are necessary in order to both lessen the burden that the industry poses and to create state-of-the-art solutions that help to solve the overarching environmental crisis at hand.
The scope of this special Issue is to bring attention to recent innovations in fiber and material science that emphasize sustainable solutions.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Advanced materials;
- Biodegradable polymers;
- Fibrous materials;
- Novel fibers;
- Advanced technology.
I/We look forward to receiving your contributions.
