KAUNAS - Scientists in Lithuania say that textile microfibres from tumble dryers could be collected and converted into energy to mitigate climate change and reduce microplastic pollution.

Researchers from the Kaunas University of Technology and the Lithuanian Energy Institute constructed a mini pilot plant to prove their point and developed a mathematical model to calculate the potential economic and environmental benefits.

Their study, published in the peer-reviewed Science of the Total Environment journal, says that three energy products - oil, gas and char - could be extracted from lint microfibres.
