Russian entrepreneurs suggest investing in man-made fibre

Russian entrepreneurs of textile and light industry have suggested that the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Russia should instead of reviving the domestic cotton industry aim at manufacturing of man-made fibre, used in the making of polyester and other synthetic fabrics.
 
The Russian Government has created a technical textiles branch around 15 years ago, which focuses on raw materials derived from petrochemical products, and the branch has become the driving force of the country’s light industry, the Russian Union of Entrepreneurs of Textile and Light Industry said, reports newspaper of the Government of Russian Federation ‘Rossiyskaya Gazeta’.
 
According to the union, the global demand for synthetic materials continues to rise. In addition, the increasing developments in the field of fabrics made from petroleum derivates have found new applications especially in the construction of roads (geo textiles), in the aviation and automotive industries (automobile textiles).
 
The technology of producing fabric from petroleum has already been successfully engaged in Germany, the union states.
 
The entrepreneurs are of the opinion that the quality of domestic cotton may be significantly lower compared to the imported cotton and hence propose a parallel program for production of textiles from petroleum derivatives.
 
However, the entrepreneurs’ union said the program would require a lot of money as the production of textiles from petroleum is expensive, estimated at about 15 billion rubles a year.
 
Earlier this month, the Russian Ministry of Trade and Industry announced its plans to revive the domestic cotton production to reduce dependence of its textile industry on imported cotton.
 
Last year, Russia imported 90,000 tons of cotton.
