Chemistry and Chemical Processing

  • Exploration of new avenues in application of Bio-technology in textile processing with respect to Quality improvement and source reduction in stream pollution.
  • Eco-friendly finishing to natural dyed fabric with special reference to decentralised sector.
  • Development of shades on cellulosic yarns and fabrics meant for value added products manufactured by decentralised powerloom sector using trichromatic reactive dyes.
  • Application of bio-technology in wet processing of textiles with special reference to cellulases to impart speciality finishes and amylases for rapid desizing under Indian mill conditions.
  • Development of speciality polymetric finishes for jute and blended fabrics to impart functional and asthetic properties.
  • Development of cost effective Eco-friendly products & processes for chemical processing of textiles with special reference to requirements for export.
  • Stanardisation of instrumental test methods for qualitative and quantitative estimation of hazardous chemicals red-listed for fabrics meant for export at PPB level.
  • Development of Eco-friendly polymers for textile application.
  • Formaldehyde-free finishing of cotton fabrics dyed with various classes of dyes for improved functional properties.
  • Development, evaluation & standardisation of Eco-friendly & quality improvement products & processes in textiles with special reference to requirements of international standards for exports.
  • Identification of natural dyes in dyed textiles.
  • Standardisation of methods for dyeing with natural dyes w.r.t. Eco-standards.
  • Development of Eco-friendly patches stain remover with special reference to the needs of the export of textiles.
  • Dyeing of lyocell fibre with different classes of reactive dyes.
  • Receipe prediction for dyeing combination shades on cotton yarns commonly used in the decentralised powerloom sector and study the effect of these shades on woven fabrics (woven with different weaves) using the existing CAD system.
  • Development & identification of high performance and multi-functional products & processes for value-added fabrics for export & for manufacture by decentralised sector.
