Spinnova technology has won the Fast Company’s 2019 World Changing Ideas Award in the experimental category for creating fibre from cellulose. This technology can make fabric from old clothing, agriculture waste and even trees, without the environmental challenges of older materials. It is an initiative towards stopping the bad effects of cotton production. The process has advantages over cotton, which requires large amounts of water to grow–often in water-stressed regions–and also uses large amounts of pesticides, Fast Company said.
