Abstract:

The present research has the objective of identifying the characterization and management of textile solid waste generated in clothing manufacturing within a local productive arrangement (LPA) in Brazil. The importance of this research consists in the data presentation and survey which indicate the scenario of textile solid waste, enabling the promotion of appropriate and sustainable management actions for these materials. Thus it is exploratory research with a qualitative and quantitative approach. After analysing the data, the main characteristics, dimensions and management practices of textile solid waste in these industries are presented. The research results point out a considerable amount of textile solid waste that is generated and appropriate practices for the management of such waste. Nevertheless there is a need for improvement of this process aiming at enhancement opportunities of the materials mentioned as raw material in the development of the same products or other segments, in order to promote sustainable action.
