ABSTRACT
The article stresses the need for the Indian textile industry to adopt various remedies for reducing carbon emissions. According to statistics, textiles and clothing account for nearly 4% of the secondary carbon foot print of a person in the developed world. It cites remedies which can be adopted for cutting textile emissions, such as to use atmospheric plasma technique. It notes that Sorona, a polymer which is made with agricultural feedstocks, is said to slash greenhouse gas emissions by 63% in comparison to conventional nylon made from petroleum.
