environment and climate research
A team of researchers at the University of Toronto have designed a solution to reduce the amount of microplastic fibres shed when washing synthetic fabrics. In a world swamped by fast fashion - an industry that produces a high-volume of cheaply made clothing at an immense cost to the environment - more than two thirds of clothes are now made of synthetic fabrics, such as nylon, polyester, acrylic and rayon.
The good news is that global population growth has slowed and won't in itself cause climate change, says UdeM demographics professor Alain Gagnon.

A new catalyst design created by researchers at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering could significantly improve the practicality of an electrochemical process that converts captured carbon dioxide into multi-carbon molecules - some of the key building blocks of the chemical industry.
A new grading system for waste could benefit the environment and economy Canadians trash about a billion pounds-nearly 500 million kilograms-of fashion and home items made of fabric each year, but a new grading system could help divert most of it from landfills.
