GOONDIWINDI – A study in Australia has found that cotton textile waste can be scattered in cotton fields and left to break down with no adverse effects to the land’s soil health or future yields.  

Trial results suggest such waste could be better suited for the fields from which they were once harvested, rather than landfill, though project partners are to replicate their work during the 2022-23 cotton season to corroborate these preliminary findings.

“There’s certainly a huge amount of interest in this idea and the trial results and while we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, we are hopeful that over time this will evolve to deliver a scalable solution for cotton textile waste here in Australia,” said Brooke Summers of Cotton Australia, a non-profit which supported the research.
