VANCOUVER - Athletic apparel retailer Lululemon has partnered with biotech startup LanzaTech to create what is claimed to be the world’s first fabric made from captured carbon emissions.

LanzaTech is working with ‘green’ petrochemical manufacturer India Glycols Limited (IGL) and Taiwanese textile producer Far Eastern New Century (FENC) to turn ethanol sourced from waste carbon into polyester.

The aim is to recycle carbon which would otherwise be emitted to the atmosphere as pollution, while also reducing usage of fossil fuels, to create a fabric comparable to virgin polyester.
