Juan Hinestroza, director of the textiles nanotechnology laboratory at Cornell University, has joined CycloPure's Scientific Advisory Board. Hinestroza is a US Fulbright Scholar and leading expert in fibre science technologies. He is a co-inventor of the company's process to functionalise fabrics with the breakthrough adsorption technology.
 
Hinestroza's work has featured in a number of scientific and media publications. He has presented his pioneering work on "smart textiles" at conferences and was a featured speaker at the Sports Technology Symposium hosted by FC Barcelona in November 2016. Later this year, Juan will speak at the French Open Sports Innovation Forum at Roland Garros, and will discuss clean technologies in manufacturing as a keynote speaker at this year's World Fashion Convention in Rio de Janeiro.
 
"We are thrilled to have Dr. Hinestroza join our team. We are fortunate to have all three co-inventors of the company's technology leading our development efforts: co-founder Will Dichtel in synthetic chemistry/polymer design, Damian Helbling in analytic chemistry/water treatment and Dr. Hinestroza in process chemistry/fibre science," stated CEO Frank Cassou. 
 
"Our efforts to commercialise the company's functionalised fabric technology will greatly benefit from Juan's relationship with leading apparel and textile companies," Cassou said
 
 The company's functionalised fabric process was announced in a paper detailing the company's ability to bond its adsorbent polymer materials into textiles. The process has been used to embed highly adsorbent materials into textiles and functionalise the resulting fabrics.  This enhancement greatly expands the use of the company's adsorption technology to remove VOCs and contaminants from water and air, enabling the development of innovative textiles and fiber materials, such as odor controlling fabrics, respirators and other protective materials.
 
CycloPure is applying breakthrough adsorption technology to make water resources safe from contamination by micropollutants. It has been shown that organic compounds in nanogramme concentration, including industrial chemicals, pesticides and pharmaceutical residues, are pervasive in water and retain toxic effect. (SV)
