The NIFT-TEA Knitwear Fashion Institute, Tiruppur, India signs a memorandum of understanding with Synthetic and Arts Silk Mills Research (SASMIRA) to develop waterless cotton fabric dyeing technology uses liquefied carbon dioxide instead of water.
Advanced appliance for dyeing cotton fabrics would be similar to machines earlier developed for dyeing polyesters which uses liquefied carbon dioxide instead of water, states R. R. Shrinivasan, Chairman, Academic Committee, NIFT-TEA Institute.
Their plan is to reduce the duration of effluent coming out through the pre-treatment stage from 72 hours to 12 hours by developing new technologies using peculiar microbes.
The two bodies would also consult in the area of eco-labelling, helping the Tiruppur knitwear industry to produce technical textiles for the agricultural sector and use of microbial technologies to reduce the duration of effluent treatment in the dyeing business.
The collaborators will pursue technical innovations, research and information exchanges on new ideas.
