Future of Fashion: Innovative Fabric - Mestic Fibre

Most people consider cow manure as waste. Jalila Essaidi would disagree. Her company has patented the method to directly convert animal manure waste into new materials such as bio- textiles, plastic and paper. Since cow manure contains cellulose, there is an opportunity to extract raw material from manure into new biodegradable products. Through this process, methane gas production is reduced and contamination of soil and water by phosphate and nitrate is prevented. Read on to learn more about this transformation.
