Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses the properties of some existing and newly developed biosynthetic fibers such as polylactic acid (PLA), soybean protein, casein, alginate, chitin, and chitosan. Production technologies of these fibers and their impact on various sustainability parameters are also discussed. Existing applications of these biosynthetic fibers are presented. The last section of this paper presents lifecycle assessment studies to assess the environmental impacts and sustainability aspects of PLA fibers.
