Abstract
Textile industry produces a high amount of residues that, nowadays, are poorly managed. The majority of such wastes are dumped and landfilled. Among all the textile value chain, cotton yarning factories produce wastes in the shape of fiber flocks, with lengths smaller than 10 mm that prevent their reintroduction in the textiles manufacturing process. Nonetheless, such waste cotton flocks could be used as reinforcement for short fiber mould injected composites. This paper reports on the behavior ...
