Summary: 
Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) noted emerging technologies such as 3D printing enables textile firms to improve their productivity and output at lower cost and fewer errors. The think tank said this gender displacement in the workforce could be traced to the lower educational attainment and training of women in scientific and technical disciplines. To treat this, the think tank is pushing for the greater training of women in these disciplines.

Summary: 
Considering filtration, for example: The fact that the Chinese city of Xi'an cleans its air with the tallest anti-smog tower in the world (100 m) is convincing testament, cleaning air and water is a major concern in China. And this is one reason why DORNIER in Shanghai for the first time ever in Asia will exhibit its new P2 rapier weaving machine in its most powerful configuration (Type: TGP). This machine is able to bring a reed beat-up force of up to five tons for producing wide, seamless fabrics for high density air and water filters. Wolfgang Schöffl, Head of Business Unit Weaving Machines at DORNIER explains that, "The textile is exposed to exceptionally high forces specifically for wet filtration; seams are weak spots, which should be avoided if possible.”
