“Manchester of the East” Gets New Textile Policy

GDJASUJA

First the ritual statement: The Textiles industry is the second most important economic activity in terms of employment generation after agriculture. It contributes 15% to the country’s total export earnings and has a 7% share in the total industrial output. Gujarat is the largest producer of Manmade Fibre, Synthetic Fabric and Denim. The state contributes about 12% to the country’s total textile exports. Gujarat contributes 35% to India’s total cotton production and 50% to the total manmade fibre production. Gujarat accounts for around 30% of India’s fabric production coming from the mill sector. Gujarat, with more than 30 sanctioned textile parks, ranks second highest among all the states. Moreover, Gujarat accounts for about 40% of the total MMF fabric production and about 25% of the country’s total output of technical textiles. In view of these facts, the government – both at central and state levels – must consider measures to support the industry which provides livelihood to millions of people.

“Smart Leuco­Indigo”: Electricity Instead Of Chemicals

Smart-Indigo™: High sustainability; Reduced health hazards; Savings in wastewater treatment and energy; Better colour consistency and performance; More ecological and economical; Easy to handle and more efficient

During one year over 15 billion meters of denim fabric are produced. Most of the production takes place in countries like China (52%), India & Pakistan (15%), Mexico & Brazil (13%), Europe & Turkey & Middle East (7%), USA & Canada (4%), rest of the world (9%).

The demand for denim continues to grow, with each of us already owning four or more denim fashion items. 66’000 tons of indigo powder is needed to produce 15 billion meters of denim fabrics to different shades of blue. The famous blue indigo is a powder which needs hazardous chemicals to make it water soluble for the dyeing process.

After dyeing, tons of wastewater containing these chemicals is discharged into the environment often without treatment. The excessive damages caused by those chemicals and heavy metals, like cadmium, chromium, mercury, lead, and copper are harmful to humans, animals and the environment.

Furthermore chemicals left on the denim fabrics after industrial washing can still effect our skin. Imagine wearing denims which are contaminated with chemicals! The denim dyeing process is one of the major pollution problems within the textile industry.

Time for a change.

Smart­Indigo™ will resolve these issues. This Swiss invention which utilises a 100­year­old discovery (A. Brochet, 1917) becomes reality. Tons of leuco­indigo can be produced without chemicals.

Smart-Indigo™: Because It Makes A Difference

“Smart Leuco­Indigo” is produced in an electrochemical process consuming considerably fewer resources than existing methods. Using only indigo pigment, caustic soda, water and electricity. This technology is the most environmentally friendly process to dye denim. Smart­Indigo™ is a global innovation and will markedly reduce the ecological footprint.

Behind this technology are experienced specialists in the dyeing and finishing industry. Located in Switzerland, represented globally, with established and innovative products selling all over the world. Time to market for this development, replacing chemicals with electricity was 5 years in the making. Two years longer than originally planned “-Nothing good comes easy- kept us awake more than once through desperate nights.” Mr. Herbert Guebeli, managing director says. This resulting clean technology now speaks for itself. It makes a difference.

Smart-Indigo™

Smart-Indigo™ stands for an industrially proven technology, which will make a difference by bringing a revolutionary change to the global denim dyeing industry. Combining benefits for the environment, the people and the producers of denim items.

Makes more from less

This revolutionary leuco-indigo process opens up a whole new range of opportunities.

  • Electricity instead of chemicals
  • High sustainability
  • More ecological and economical
  • Reduced health hazards
  • Better colour consistency and performance
  • Savings in wastewater treatment and energy
  • Easy to handle and more efficient

Adaptive Textile Façade at Aachen Reduces Nitrogen Oxide Pollution & Urban Heat

The adaptive textile façade green.fACade, developed from Aachen researchers, is installed in front of a building like a second skin and can permanently reduce nitrogen oxide pollution in cities.

Exhibition “Adaptive Textile Facade”

The researchers have achieved the reduction of harmful nitrogen oxides (NO and NO2) by coating the facade with titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide acts as a photo catalyst and enables the oxidation of nitrogen oxides to form washable nitrate (NO3-). The green colour of the facade also contributes to the conversion of carbon dioxide into oxygen by photosynthesis. It also creates an optical resting point in the cityscape and reduces urban heat through evaporation cooling.

green.fACade is part of the innovative research project “adaptive textile facades”, which uses the special properties of textiles. Thanks to its design, textiles can let sunlight and air through, thus contributing to a modern, aesthetic building design. A new feature of the research project is that further elements such as the titanium oxide coating or sun protection elements are integrated into the textile facade and placed in front of the existing building facade. The adaptive textile facade acts independently and thus reduces energy consumption through the positive climatic effects on the building facade.

“Adaptive Textile Facade” is part of a current research series with the aim of developing innovative facade constructions that are climate-neutral and increase the comfort of local residents. The research team consists of the three RWTH fields of architecture (Faculty of Architecture, PhD student architect M.Sc. Jan Serode), medicine (University Hospital RWTH Aachen, Clinic for Ophthalmology, Prof. Dr Walter) and textile technology (Institut für Textiltechnik, Prof. Dr Gries) for applying shared expertise in the best possible way.

This summer the research team was supported for the first time by the Munich architectural office Auer Weber, represented by managing director Philipp Auer: “For us architects, developments in the field of textile outer shells are a special challenge. Here, highly developed textile materials and processing methods are combined with the lightness and grace of fabrics. Adaptive textile facade elements will increasingly turn the “building shell” into a “building skin”, a system that not only offers weather, heat and sun protection, but is in constant intelligent exchange with its environment”.

Prof. Dr Gries from the Institut für Textiltechnik sums up: “As textile researchers, we see a great opportunity to develop concrete solutions for our urban living spaces together with renowned experts from other disciplines. I’m sure we can make the urban climate more pleasant and reduce pollution.”

Zoroguard-ZP: Antifungal and Antibacterial Agent from Sarex

Mould, mildew, fungus, yeast, and bacteria (microorganisms) are part and parcel of our everyday lives. Thousand of species of microorganisms are found in the environment, on our garments and on our bodies. Substances added to fibres, such as lubricants, antistatic agents, sizing agents, thickeners etc and dirt act as a source of food for microorganisms. The microbial growth is influenced by relative humidity and temperature. The microorganism’s growth on textiles causes a range of undesirable effects, not only on the textile itself but also on the user. These effects include stains and discoloration, generation of unpleasant odor, reduction in mechanical strength, and a risk of infection to user. The microbial growth on textiles, overall decreases functional, hygienic and aesthetic value of the textiles.

Microbial attack on textile is of great concern in textile worn next to skin, such as, apparels, socks, intimate wear, aprons, uniforms etc.; Home furnishing such as carpets, shower curtains, mattress ticking and upholstery as well as for industrial fabrics that are exposed to varied or harsh weather conditions such as filter fabrics, fabrics used for awnings, screens, tents, tarpaulins, ropes, etc. Mould and mildew are major cause of damage to outdoor textile. Many antimicrobial technologies viz. Silver, Silane, Chitosan etc are available for textiles. Out of these Zinc pyrithione based product act specifically against Fungi.

Zinc pyrithione was first developed in the 1930s for its antifungal and antibacterial properties, and it is still commonly used today as a main ingredient in anti-dandruff shampoos, and as an over-the-counter treatment for seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, athletes’ foot, ringworm and other medical conditions. Zinc pyrithione is also used in paints, polymers and textile products to inhibit the growth of fungi as well as bacteria on susceptible surfaces.

Zinc pyrithione mediated growth inhibition is due to increased copper uptake. Zinc pyrithione in presence of copper forms copper pyrithione which is exogenous (outside microbial cell). This copper pyrithione is then transported inside cell (endogenous) which eventually targets Iron-Sulphur(Fe-S) proteins in microbial cell. Fe-S proteins play key role in microbial metabolism. Deactivation of these Fe-S protein leads to stop in microbial metabolism eventually leading to cell death.(Fig.1)

Fig.1 : Mechanism of action of Zoroguard-ZP

Looking at demand’s of industry for antimicrobial finish exhibiting antifungal as well antibacterial finish for indoor as well as outdoor application such as Home textile, Sport textile and Technical textile etc, Sarex has developed antimicrobial finish Zoroguard-ZP based on Zinc pyrithione chemistry.

Detergents, Cosmetics, and Clothes Producing Everyday Products with Fungi

Most detergents, cosmetics, and clothes, to name just a few products, are manufactured using petroleum, making such everyday items anything but eco-friendly. It is now possible to produce the bio-based and CO2-neutral basic chemicals for such articles with the help of fungi.

If you find a layer of blue-green mold covering your bread, fruit or something else from your pantry, you’ll quite rightly end up throwing it out with the garbage – fungi are after all harmful to your health. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB in Stuttgart, however, are particularly keen on molds, and in particular the genus Aspergillus. They’re also enthusiastic about yeast and smut fungi. Why? “Fungi have long been indispensable for antibiotic production or in the food industry. The fungi we employ help us to synthesize a variety of chemicals in a CO2-neutral way. They’re the basis for detergents, emulsifiers, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and plastics,” says Prof. Steffen Rupp, deputy director of Fraunhofer IGB and head of the Department of Molecular Biotechnology.

In contrast to petroleum, extracting chemicals from renewable raw materials doesn’t release CO2 into the atmosphere. And using fungi as production organisms has another major advantage: The pool of potential production organisms is almost inexhaustible, as is the range of renewable raw materials they can convert. As the fungi employ a host of different metabolic pathways, they produce an astonishing variety of products, which can be used in a wide range of applications.

Seminar at ‘Liva Studio’,Tiruppur on Thriving Indian Man Made Fibre Textiles – A Myriad of Opportunities

The Synthetic & Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC), Mumbai, the apex Export Promotion Council of MMFT exporters organized a seminar on Thriving Indian Man Made Fibre Textiles – A Myriad of Opportunities on 18th December 2018 at ‘Liva Studio’,Tiruppur in association with SIMA and Grasim Industries Ltd.

The Seminar was intended to create awareness amongst the textile community in and around Tiruppur region about the prospects for further growth of Man-made fibre textiles and bring more textile manufacturers and traders as members of SRTEPC.

Mr. Murali Balkrishna, Joint Director opened the session by welcoming the gathering of about 50 guests and invited the distinguished Chief guest Mr. Durai Palanisamy, Director, Pallavaa Group & Member-Committee of Administration, SRTEPC, Mr. S. Balaraju, Executive Director, SRTEPC, Mr. D. Jayaraman, Asst. Director (Head-Spinning), SITRA, Mr. M. Natarajan, Asst. VP (Sales & Marketing), Zonal Head (Southern Region) Grasim Industries Ltd, Mr. M. Balasubramanian, Dy. Director & Officer In-Charge, Regional OTxC, Coimbatore and Mr. M. Duraisamy, Past Chairman, PDEXCIL and MD, Surya Cotton Mills Ltd. He thanked Mr. M. Natarajan for supporting the Council in its endeavor to promote manufacture and exports of MMFT in the textile cluster of Tirupur. He spoke of the need for partnership and collaboration of likeminded associations and companies to further the cause of MMFT in these clusters.

Mr. M. Natarajan presented the distinguished guests with bouquets.

Shri Durai Palanisamy, Director, Pallavaa Group & Member-Committee of Administration, SRTEPC delivering the special address.

Mr. Durai Palanisami in his Keynote Address spoke about the huge opportunity for manufacturers in the South to get into exports of MMFT. While he agreed that the domestic market is huge, he pointed out that situations like the demonetization and GST implementation which resulted in lower business in the domestic market could be offset by being present in exports and hence it is imperative to have a backup plan in place. He spoke of the high per capita consumption of textiles globally and the low consumption in India which presented a great opportunity for Indian Manufacturers and exporters. The limitations of natural fibre meant that the gap had to be filled by MMFT and its blends. He urged the audience to the benefit of the expertise of organizations such as SRTEPC and Grasim Industries.

The Executive Director with his in-depth knowledge on MMFT briefly touched upon the current market scenario of MMFT in the world. He informed the gathering that India is the largest supplier of MMFT products in the world after China and supplies it to over 150 countries. “There is a tremendous growth in the global textile market with huge demand for MMFT products and we should take advantage of the rising demand in the overseas market” said the Executive Director. He praised SIMA, Grasim Industries Ltd. and other Clusters in the region for playing an important role in developing the MMFT sector in Southern India. “The Ministry of Textiles, Government of India has always supported and encouraged by providing necessary incentives and other benefits to help our industry to grow” conveyed by the ED. He also said that the onus now lies on the individual companies to take advantage of the myriad of opportunities and urged the guests in attendance to be part of the SRTEPC family by becoming member and take benefit of various services and initiatives undertaken by the Council to assist exporters in their development and growth. He also informed them about the activities planned for the next financial year.

“Moralization” or “Re-moralization” of Globalization?

GDJASUJA

The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting is being held from 22—25 January 2019 in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland. The 2019 event will focus on the theme, ‘Globalization 4.0: Shaping a Global Architecture in the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution’. The stated mission of the World Economic Forum is to improve the state of the world. I came across a statement of Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, in which he says a “re-moralization” of globalization is needed. He said globalization produced many “winners” over the last generation or so. “But now we have to look after the losers, after those who have been left behind.” The intensity of this revealing statement drove me to write this piece and its title in the form of a question is equally revealing. This question needs to be earnestly answered if any meaningful dialogue has to happen for the required course correction.
