In this article we discuss a technology developed in our laboratory to recycle and reuse polystyrene waste (e.g. thermocol) into a fabric that can be used for many industrial applications such as cleaning of oil spills and flexible insulation for green buildings. Another novelty of this process is that it also helps in managing citrus fruit peels which are an agro-waste. Apart from recycling polystyrene, these citrus fruit peels can also be used in many other innovative ways such as print transfer medium, making tattoos or as solvent for biopolymers. This work is a demonstration of environmental sustainability using a green and novel approach. © 2021, Indian Academy of Sciences.
