Quick Guide to Biosynthetics

Rita Luppino

Welcome to Textile Exchange’s Quick Guide to Biosynthetics – a concise review of the opportunities offered by developments in this area. The Guide has been produced as a companion piece to accompany the release of Textile Exchange’s new microsite, aboutbiosynthetics.org. Biosynthetics form part of Textile Exchange’s portfolio of Preferred Fiber & Materials (PFMs) because of their potential to reduce the textile industry’s dependence on fossil fuels and shrink its carbon footprint, while producing innovative, high performance materials.
