Polymer materials manufacturer Covestro has developed a method of yielding elastic textile fibres through the partial use of carbon dioxide as a replacement to crude oils.

Produced in partnership with the Institute of Textile Technology at RWTH Aachen University, along with other collaborators, the fibres – made from CO2-based thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) – were created through the utilisation of a melt spinning technique that, unlike conventional dry spinning, is not reliant on harmful solvents.

Developing a smart material which can regulate its temperature
Summary: 
Anyone who has ever worked in an open-plan office will have be aware of just how drastically different people’s individual temperature preferences are. It’s one reason why the thermostat is arguably the biggest source of conflict

Anyone who has ever worked in an open-plan office will have be aware of just how drastically different people’s individual temperature preferences are. It’s one reason why the thermostat is arguably the biggest source of conflict in offices around the world. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a material that could more easily adapt to temperature requirements; either trapping in or releasing heat as required?

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.

GRS certificates acquired by RadiciGroup covers raw and yarn-dyed 95% r-PET and solution-dyed 85% r-PET

Related Keywords: Accelerating Sustainability in Textile and Fashion, fibres, nylon, polyester, polymer, R-PET, r-Radyarn, r-Starlight, RadiciGroup Comfort Fibres, yarn

Bergamo
Summary: 
Filippo Servalli, Marketing and Sustainability Director of RadiciGroup said that, “GRS certification was yet another goal achieved by the Group – evidence of its customary transparency with the greatest clarity,” emphasising how measuring environmental impacts and continuously working to reduce them is always a top priority of the Group. He added that, “Indeed, these are the operative words guiding the RadiciGroup Comfort Fibres Business Area on a daily basis on its road to certifying its fibres obtained from recovered materials.” Later he said that, “Again, with the aim of saving natural resources, and water in particular, the Group offers solution-dyed polyester (and nylon) yarn. Solution dyeing requires less water and energy usage compared to conventional yarn or piece dying, because the colour is added ‘upstream’ during the extrusion stage and thus becomes incorporated into the polymer matrix.”

Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) rebar has brought a solid construction revolution that is in full positioning with Saudi Aramco efforts to encourage nonmetallic solutions

Related Keywords: acidic solutions, alkaline solutions, fibers, FRP rebar, liquid resin, polymer, Saudi Aramco, thermal variation

Saudi Arabia
Summary: 
Saudi Aramco collaborated with King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, and King Saud University, on separate projects to evaluate the performance and durability of FRP rebar and FRP sheets under the typical local environmental conditions specifically considering exposure to alkaline solutions (i.e., seawater and subkha), acidic solutions, thermal variation, the outdoors, and fire, a few years back.

The results of these studies confirmed the excellent potential for the use of these materials on new construction and for the strengthening or repair of existing structures.
