EMMEN – The vast amounts of dairy waste produced in Europe can be recycled and used to make textiles, according to Swiss fibre company Swicofil, which has offered textile fibres extracted from milk proteins for the last few years. The company notes that of the 88 million tonnes of food wasted in Europe every year, 20 per cent of that is dairy produce. UK charity, WRAP also says 200,000 tonnes, out of the 340,000 tonnes of milk wasted in the UK per year, is avoidable.
