Natural silk is a very expensive material for the textile industry. Silk mills produce large amounts of fibrous waste from natural silk. It is very important to prepare the necessary materials for industry from the fibrous waste of silk. We obtained a multifunctional sorbent from silk fiber waste by various methods to purify vegetable oils. The resulting sorbent was used to purify cottonseed oil instead of bentonite-based sorbents. We are currently conducting research to modify natural silk fibro derived from silkworms. In this case, mainly the silk fibers derived from spinning are studied as objects. Silk waste fibers from yarn are also chemically composed of fibroin. However, their hydrolysis and sorption properties have not yet been studied. In our research, we are studying the hydrolysis and sorption properties of silk waste fibers. As a result of the hydrolysis of polymers, they change from a fibrous state to a powdery state. Thus, silkworm fibers have three structures, the second of which is used in spinning silk weaving. The structures on the first and third floors are removed as waste. Their chemical properties, hydrolysis and sorption properties are still poorly understood
