Biotech Helps Make Sugar-based Apparel
Sarah Rich, 13 Jul 06

You wouldn't necessarily expect to find haute couture at the World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioprocessing, but this year, that's just what came strutting down a catwalk at the Toronto conference. From the sustainable biopolymer producer, Natureworks comes fiber made of corn sugar. You've heard about this process for developing plastics and packaging, but this is new territory for textiles and fashion. Fancy.

Thanks, Mr. Zaks
