The NIFT-TEA Knitwear Fashion Institute is working in collaboration with Synthetic and Arts Silk Mills Research (SASMIRA) to develop a machine for dyeing cotton fabrics without the use of water.

The proposed machine would be similar to the one developed by SASMIRA for dyeing polyester fabrics. It uses liquefied carbon dioxide instead of water, said R. Shrinivasan, chairman of Academic Committee in NIFT-TEA Institute.

The two organisations recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to take pursue technological innovations as part of the collaborative projects, undertake research activities and information exchange on new technologies, media reports said.

The two bodies would also be involved in joint consultancy in the area of eco labelling besides helping Tirupur knitwear industry to make gigantic strides in the production of technical textiles and sourcing information regarding textiles used in the agriculture sector.

The NIFT-TEA Institute, which is supported by the Tirupur Exporters Association, will also serve as a hub for developing new technologies using 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. We plan to reduce the duration to 12 hours,” said Shrinivasan.

The MoU also envisages the development of a curriculum on agro-textiles by the Centre of Excellence for Agrotextiles, under SASMIRA which could be later introduced in universities and other educational institutions. (SH)
