This research concerned with emphasizing the importance of the contribution of the textile industry in the province on the ECO-system so as to reduce pollution resulting from various agricultural and industrial wastes, where we used one of these plants waste which found in the Arab Republic of Egypt is(Bagasse). Bagasse is considered of secondary waste that results from squeeze the stalks of sugar cane, which is used in the manufacture of sugar, black honey and fresh juice. Using Bagasse fibers need some of treatments to remove lignin from fibers which gave stiffness to the stalk of sugar cane plants, then we had to blending Bagasse fibers with other fibers to get all the properties of these fibers in the textile end product. Two types of blending were used, the first: blended Bagasse fibers with other natural bast fibers (Linen, jute) to produce variation counts of spinning yarns, the second: blended Bagasse fibers with man-made fibers (poly propylene) to produce nonwoven fabrics. In this study tests were conducted on each of the steps and all test methods were explained and results were discussed to demonstrate the possibility of using samples produced from the blending of plants waste (Bagasse) in the field of textile.
