Sustainable and thermal insulating composite materials: cements containing recycled textile microfibres
Every year a large amount of textile waste is generated by the fashion sector. Recently this phenomenon has rapidly worsened due to the spread of the “fast fashion” concept, based on a linear economic model and mass consumption. The desire to reduce process environmental impact and the objective to create new business with waste products pushed a consortium’s companies to start a research project in collaboration with the Department of Engineering Enzo Ferrari. Read the project, it won our first call for papers.
