Development of biotechnological processes for textile processing to dramatically reduce consumption of resources and environmental pollution without incurring expensive investments.
To develop specific processing systems, as reduced chrome, nonchrome, aldehyde, oxazolidine and heavy vegetable combination and /or resin tannage which gives desired blend of properties for the restauration of antique leathers.
Investigation of the production parameters (fibres, yarns, weaving, knitting, dyeing and finishing) for woven and knitted fabrics of high upf (ultraviolet protection factor) and optimum resistance to weather conditions.
Elaboration of good quality, attractive and ecological textile products using naturally coloured cotton, and development of a technology to process coloured cotton in spinning mills.
Innovation in processing technologies to manufacture medical leathers, shoe upper/linings for increased health and comfort efficiency.
Aims to investigate the physical and chemical properties of some modern textile fibres in order to develop advanced methods and norms for distinguishing them from raw materials and woven fabrics.
Aim: to investigate defects in textile yarns and fabrics then to develop procedures for recognition, classification and detection of causes and establishment of influences on quality parameters with the development of procedures for preventing and remedying negative effects.
Aims to investigate the production of fibres and fabrics with semi-permanent antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal and deodorising properties.
To exploit silver's properties to give antimicrobial, antistatic and thermo-regulating properties to textile materials. Either silver-containing yarns or novel finish formulations will be applied to this effect.
