NIFT-TEA Knitwear Fashion Institute promoted by Tirupur garment exporters will take up with Synthetic and Arts Silk Mills Research (SASMIRA) to develop a gadget for dyeing â€˜cotton fabricsâ€™ without using water and also draft a curriculum on agro textiles.The technological innovations were planned as part of the collaborative projects.
NIFT-TEA Institute and SASMIRA signed a Memorandum of Understanding recently to promote development of new products, research activities and information exchange on new technologies.
The two bodies would also be involved in joint consultancy in the area of eco labeling besides helping Tirupur knitwear industry to make gigantic strides in the production of technical textiles and sourcing information regarding textiles used in the field of agriculture.
The curriculum which the NIFT-TEA Institute and the Centre of Excellence for Agrotextiles under SASMIRA plan to be developed would be later suggested for introduction in universities and institutes.
On the advanced appliance that has been planned to be developed for dyeing â€˜cotton farbicsâ€™, R. R. Shrinivasan, chairman of Academic Committee in NIFT-TEA Institute said that it would be similar on the lines of a machine which SASMIRA had already developed for dyeing polyesters.
The equipment which SASMIRA developed for dyeing polyester fabrics used liquefied carbon dioxide instead of water.
The NIFT-TEA Institute will be further acting as a hub for developing new technologies using peculiar microbes to reduce the duration of effluent treatment in the dyeing segment.
At present, it takes almost 72 hours for the effluent to come out through the pre-treatment stage. They plan to reduce the duration to 12 hours.
