Mushrooms, algaes and food leftovers: bioengineering awarded by H&M Foundation

Bioengineering is really about to gain a position in the fashion industry. On Wednesday, the H&M Foundation announced the winners of this year’s Global Change Award. Out of the five winners, three are from the field of bioengineering: American Crop-A-Porter, who uses leftovers from crop harvest to make sustainable bio textiles, Israeli Algae Apparel who is turning algae into biofiber and eco-friendly dye, and Fungi Fashion who make custom made clothes out of decompostable mushroom roots.
The other winners were Swedish The Regenerator who separate polyester and cotton blends and turn them into new textile fiber, and Belgian Smart Stitch who make a dissolvable thread that makes textile recycling a lot easier. Group-shot_GCA-winners-2018_step-and-repeat
