As the world is worried about ecological impact of polyethene – back in 2015 – as an ecofriendly alternative, Dr. Mubarak Ahmad Khan successfully developed a biodegradable and eco-friendly bag from jute cellulose film polymer – known as the ‘Sonali bag.’

Dr. Mubarak in a recent interview with Textile Today said, “If Bangladesh’s total jute production turns into Sonali bag, it can reduce the 1/3 of global polythene usage.”

Dr. Mubarak Ahmad Khan is currently serving as an Advisor of Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC) and a former Chief Scientific Officer of the Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission.

On 30 March, TTH 7th season grand finale – the top 5 Transformation Leaders will showcase their innovation outcomes set for the transformation of the textile and apparel industry.
