AMSTERDAM – Global sustainability organisation Fashion for Good (FFG) has initiated a new project that will explore the feasibility of scaling promising PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoates) fibres for commercial use.  

PHA fibres are biosynthetic alternatives to fossil fuel-based materials, and so in theory could help reduce the industry’s carbon emissions output by switching out synthetics.  

FFG managing director, Katrin Ley, commented: “There is an urgent need to find replacements for the predominantly fossil based fibres in the fashion industry through solutions such as biosynthetics from renewable sources. This project aims to drive further innovation in this space to bring them to scale.”
