YORK - Scientists at the University of York are working on a £5.4m project with the Royal College of Art to transform household waste, crops and old fabrics into new textiles.

The aim is to reduce the amount of fabric sent to incinerators and landfill per year in the UK, as well as the amount that is imported.

To create the new materials, scientists in laboratories in York will break down old textiles, household waste and crop residues into simple sugars using enzymes.
