A Study on Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) of a Cotton Woven Shirt
AbstractThe property of textile materials has gained a lot of attention thanks to the resource consumption and wastematerial emissions at the moment time. So, it's terribly essential and a core demand to gauge theenvironmental result of textiles from a life cycle perspective to develop the property of textiles.Environmental problems became vital over the previous few years owing to increasing pollution, wastematerials, heating, etc. shoppers have additionally begun to demand inexperienced products. As a result ofthese events, additional strategic and systematic approaches square measure necessary for ever-changingenvironmental problems. Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) is one of the tools to satisfy this necessity. During thisresearch, we have a tendency to square measure analyzing the LCA of a ‘Cotton woven Shirt’, andscientifically evaluating the environmental impacts also as resource utilization to supply, from raw materialsto the disposal of the merchandise at the top of life.
