Thermoplastic polyester elastomer is consists of hard and soft segments. Hard segments include crystalline polybutylene terephthalate, while soft segments include amorphous polyethers. Thermoplastic polyester elastomers have flexibility of rubber, strength of plastic, and processibility of thermoplastics. They can be easily processed by convectional thermoplastic processes such as injection molding, calendaring, rotational molding, extrusion, and melt casting. Thermoplastic elastomer is used to manufacture parts of electrical devices, automobiles etc. that requires high temperature.

Melt blowing is a technique used for the manufacture of thin sheets of nonwoven fibers. It is a method by which polymer melt is extruded out through tiny nozzles and subjected to high-speed blowing gas. Due to presence of gas, the extruded polymer forms a nonwoven polymer sheet. Different polymers are used as raw materials in the process of melt blowing. The process starts with a polymer resin and ends with a finished, self-bonded fabric with superior properties.

While cotton growing and ginning is a top agricultural export industry in Tanzania, the sector has been struggling for the past 50 years. As a result, Tanzania’s half a million smallholder cotton farmers in the Lake Zone, the region southeast of Lake Victoria where most cotton is produced, remain impoverished. The poverty rate in Tanzania was 26.8 percent in 2016. Improving the Tanzanian economy, which relies on the cotton sector, is essential to further reduce the poverty rate and improving livelihoods.
