The Zara capsule collection of black party dresses incorporates fabric made with carbon emissions.
LanzaTech’s biological process captures and converts steel mill emissions that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide.
The company claims the Zara capsule collection of black dresses marks the first clothing to come to market made from carbon waste.
The dresses are available for purchase online only.
Earlier this year, LanzaTech partnered with Canadian athletic apparel retailer Lululemon Athletica on what was claimed to be the world’s first yarn and fabric using recycled carbon emissions that would otherwise be emitted to the atmosphere as pollution.
LanzaTech also converts different feedstocks including agricultural or household waste into ethanol through a fermentation process much like that of beer or wine, only using waste carbon from sugars and microbes, instead of yeast.
Inditex recently announced it is bringing its net zero emissions target forward ten years to 2040 and aims to hit its sustainable cotton target by 2023, two years ahead of schedule.
