EcoFab: Repurposing Non - Degradable Plastic Bottles into Sustainable Fabric

Tanveer Inamdar

Abstract: This research paper presents an innovative solution to address the growing challenges of non - degradable plastic waste and its environmental impact. The study focuses on the conversion of discarded plastic bottles into functional fibers, subsequently transformed into yarn and fabric. The methodology involves a multi - step process encompassing collection, cleaning, shredding, and extrusion to create high - quality fibers. These fibers are then spun into yarn, offering a sustainable alternative for fabric production. The properties of the plastic bottle - derived yarn, including tensile strength, flexibility, and durability, are thoroughly analyzed, revealing its potential for diverse applications. Case studies demonstrate its viability in industries ranging from fashion to infrastructure. The research also explores the environmental implications of this approach, underscoring its contribution to waste reduction and carbon footprint mitigation. By introducing a practical method to repurpose plastic waste into valuable materials, this study aligns with the global pursuit of sustainable practices. This innovative approach not only addresses the plastic waste crisis but also presents a path forward for the textile industry to embrace environmentally conscious production methods.
