Published: 9 Feb 2018

This issue of High-Tech Materials profiles a fabric-shredding machine for converting textile waste into other products, a chemical recycling technology for harvesting polyester from textiles waste, a recycled carbon fiber textile, a carbon disulphide-free process for recycling fiber material from worn and discarded cotton, and a technique for transforming cellulose into fabric materials that are stronger than cotton. The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Textile waste, polyester, recycled carbon fiber textile, cellulose
