dc.description.abstractThe applications of biotechnology to textiles are discussed with reference to improvements in natural fibres, novel new biodegradable fibres and polymers, biofabrics, intermediates and dyes from micro-organisms, and treatment of textile waste water. Majority of the techniques are not yet commercialized. However, wherever a clear economic justification and market for a particular product or process exists, progress has been rapid. It is thus expected that in future, many of the biotechnological processes would help in solving the environmental problems posed by textile industry.en_US
