Preface
As anyone can imagine, sourcing is the vital first step in apparel production, whereas the choice of sustainable raw materials plays a crucial role in deciding the fate of the product in terms of sustainability. There is a generic division of raw materials, namely natural and man-made ones. Apart from natural and man-made raw materials, there are ample amounts of novel and new textile materials arising these days for textile sourcing, and this volume lists all those materials under regenerated and man-made ones along with the novel, alternative, new sustainable alternatives and their production, processing, and properties.

This volume gives a comprehensive outlook on various sustainable synthetic raw materials for raw material sourcing and the key issues around how to change manmade and regenerated fibers from unsustainable origin to sustainable ones and with detailed implications. This book also deals with the novel, alternative sustainable raw materials and their sourcing.

This book presents nine chapters. The first chapter, Important Step in Sustainability: Polyethylene Terephthalate Recycling and the Recent Developments, by Sedat Kumartasli and Ozan Avinc, explores recycling methods and the steps of used waste polyethylene terephthalate materials and the rebirth of waste polyester materials in new textile products and also related recent developments was comprehensively reviewed.

Secondly, Angela Liliana Dotor Robayo, in Thinking Textile Materials from Their Nature: Ethical Materials for Fashion Design with Technological, Social, and Aesthetic Sense aims to expose two research projects started in 2016 at the University of Bogotá Jorge Tadeo Lozano, which are case studies of living laboratories co-disciplinary spaces that promote sustainability in fashion. This co-disciplinary approach for the softening and improvement of Creole sheep wool with peasant community; an artisan community who work silk; the silk nanostructuring for color change and luxury design; the characterization of antibacteriality in Creole sheep wool for functional fashion; and the generation of a biopolymer from rice are discussed.

The following chapter, Sustainable Green-Based Composites from Renewable Resources in Textile: Industrial Cotton Wastes by Emine Dilara Kocak, Munir Tasdemir, and Cigdem Gul explores cotton wastes in the apparel industry, and the opportunity of recovering them as recycled yarns. It analyzes different opportunities and potentials of reusing short fibers as cost-effective, profitable, renewable, environmentally friendly, and sustainable.

Subsequently, Aravin Prince Periyasamy and Jiri Militky author of the chapter entitled Sustainability in Regenerated Textile Fibers analyzes fibers as the basic raw material for textiles and explores the necessity to use sustainable materials and therefore produce sustainable textiles. Therefore, the author describes sustainability in regenerated fibers, including the cellulose and protein and their recent developments, including lyocell, bamboo viscose, modal, seacell®, smartcell®, and sustainable protein fibers.

Moving on to the next chapter, Use of Roselle (Hibiscus Sabdariffa) in Composite Materials for Sustainability, Munir Taşdemir, Çiğdem Gül, and Emine Dilara Kocak describe plant-based materials generally used to produce light composites. The authors present Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) fiber that is employed to reduce carbon footprint and increase sustainable production aiming to increase the mechanical properties of the proposed material as well as the cost-effective production. Then, Sedat Kumartasli and Ozan Avinc present Recycling of Marine Litter and Ocean Plastics: A Vital Sustainable Solution for Increasing Ecology and Health Problem. They explore and analyze marine litter and recycling of marine litter and ocean plastics and cover recent commercial developments for marine litter recycling.

In the next chapter, Sustainability in Polyurethane Synthesis and Bio-based Polyurethanes, Hilal Olcay, Emine Dilara Kocak, and Zehra Yıldız explore the composition, raw materials, and properties of polyurethane (PU) materials used in textile and other sectors. They also analyze the possibilities for bio-based PU synthesis. Later, Songyi Yan, Celina Jones, Claudia E. Henninger, and Helen McCormick, in the chapter entitled Textile Industry Insights Towards Impact of Regenerated Cellulosic and Synthetic Fibres on Microfibre Pollution investigate microfibre pollution (MFP) from the textile industry perspective and what challenges and/or solutions are associated with it.

Finally, in Sustainable, Renewable, and Biodegradable Poly(Lactic Acid) Fibers and Their Latest Developments in the Last Decade, by the authors, Farnaz Sadat Fattahi, Akbar Khoddami, and Ozan Avinc, PLA [Poly(Lactic Acid)] stands as a potential option in many different fields for reducing environmental concerns and for a more sustainable future. The authors comprehensively review sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable PLA fibers and their latest developments.
