German high quality products for ironing

 

 

German products enjoy a very high reputation at the international clothing industry. The worldwide leading specialist for high quality ironing covers VOMATEX Germany is going to present the wide range of heat and pressure resistant foams, felts and textiles at the Texprocess fair which will be held in Frankfurt a.M, Germany, from 9.-12. May.

 


Since 1968 the VOMATEX high German quality products are mainly used on industrial ironing tables and presses as well as fusing machines in clothing factories. Besides these articles are suitable for many other applications like textile bonding, fusing, thermo transfer printing and bending in industries like shoe, glass, aluminium, furniture, advertising and many others.



Today the ironing covers market faces worldwide competition, especially by new suppliers from China, but all attempts to reach the superior price/cost ratio of high German quality covers from VOMATEX failed so far.


Every international clothing factory and machine manufacturer is looking for a cost saving purchase of ironing covers, but cheap imitations are no solution. They do not last as long as VOMATEX high quality products and they quickly lose shape, elasticity and permeability, which is corrupting the look and the value of the clothing. Moreover inferior imitations cause more machine breakdown time which disturbs the continuous production process and costs more money than saved at the cheap purchase.

 

Technicians, engineers and purchase managers who realized this correlation replaced the inferior covers with high quality articles from VOMATEX and did not only save cost but also improved the ironing result and the rating of their products.



If you are looking for heat and pressure resistant coverings it is worth to visit VOMATEX on Texprocess in hall 6.0, booth B 60.

Cotton Demand is Strong

 

By: Seshadri Ramkumar, Texas Tech University, USA

(Lubbock, USA, March 27, 2017)-The demand for cotton is strong, which will be reflected in increased plantings.

 

High level of optimism was evident in Lubbock at the Plains Cotton Growers’ (PCG) meeting, this past Friday.

 

At least, 15% increase in acreage is expected against last year, this planting season in Texas. High Plains of Texas with 41 cotton-growing counties will see 15 to 20% increase in cotton planting this spring compared to last year.

 

Given the yield, quality of the crop and the price levels, cotton is the best crop in High Plains against food grains. High Plains has seen enhancement of quality in the recent crops with low bark, improvement in micronaire, which drive up cotton production, as there is demand for quality cotton world over. The importance of quality cotton with less contamination is a need felt by Indian cotton spinners. This may the reason; exporters like Australia are taking a serious look at Indian market, which itself is a leading producer of cotton.

 

Last year, High Plains of cotton planted 3.68 million acres of upland cotton, which is expected to go up this year. Steve Verett, Executive VP of PCG stated, growers are indicating an increase of cotton plantings for 2017, especially in our northern high plains region. Many of PCG’s members plant a various mixture of crops and we support their seeking the mix that is most efficient and profitable for their individual operation, added Verett.

 

The main reason for increased interest in cotton is the growing demand for cotton. Price fluctuations with synthetics and increase in general demand for cotton are major drivers. This season’s (October 16 –September 17) India’s crop is not what it was expected earlier, which also has aided more interest in cotton in the High Plains of Texas and elsewhere.

 

Of course, weather will be a major driver on what the yields will be for the 2017 crop in Texas, the leading cotton producing state in the United States. Large range modeling hits that good weather patterns in May to June period, that may be beneficial to cotton said, Matt Ernst, Fox34 chief meteorologist in Lubbock.

 

 

All pointers are pointing in the right direction for cotton and surely, demand is leading the charge for more cotton.

 

 

IQ-SPS GmbH (Germany) and CREALET AG (Switzerland) will take the chance to point out their efforts to take advantage of synergies that exist in terms of products, services and market position during the Techtextil from 09 – 12 May 2017 in Frankfurt am Main.

 

 

The two companies have the necessary know-how to modernize or overhaul weaving machines. The engineering department is constantly creating innovative products in the field of electronically warp feeding from beams or weaving creels for existing or new wide and narrow weaving machines as well as warp knitting machines.

Special developments were realized in the feeding of carbon fibers.

 

Core business of both companies are upgrading or overhauling of weaving machines

IQ-SPS and CREALET bring their expertise to bear on adapting and upgrading machines and their warp control systems so that customers get a customized application specific machine.

Upgrading of existing machines or the purchase of used machines does not mean a sacrifice on quality. Quite the opposite: Used and generally overhauled machines are often of higher quality and not so prone to breakdown as new models.

Today ‘Solar Energy’ has established itself as one of the most potential non-conventional energy resources to steadily replace conventional energy sources such as the hydro electricity and thermal power, as the production of conventional energy is not likely to meet future electricity demand of the world. The availability of natural fuel such as coal, gas, oil is limited and also the power generation using that fuel creates pollution into the atmosphere. There are plenty of other environment friendly sources such as sunlight and air which are rarely being used to generate power. Many organizations have already started thinking about the alternative energy resources and embracing solar energy. Besides being cost effective the technology also saves the planet as it is complete pollution-free.

 

 

In view of the above scenario and also for promoting ‘Green Power’, Northern India Textile Research Association, popularly known as NITRA, Ghaziabad, has decided to install Grid-connected Roof-top Solar Power Plant at its building. The plant is estimated to be fulfilling about 60%-70% of NITRA’s total power consumption in first phase. This effort, in turn, will also reduce the pollution which is quite prevalent in NCR and would help NITRA comply with its social responsibility.  In addition to that, this move will encourage the textile and garment units to install solar power plant, many of those have already installed in their units.

Tips for Cotton and Allied Sectors

 

By: Seshadri Ramkumar, Texas Tech University, USA

 

Getting involved and being active participants are a few traits that are needed to push the cotton, textile and related sectors forward.

 

Mr. Larry Combest, former Chairman of the US House Agriculture committee while reminiscing about his long experience in the United States’ Congress provided some value suggestions that are needed for people in any industry, in particular cotton sector.

 

Getting involved in the causes that affect the industry, by being very specific about problems and reasoning with policy makers will help to move the industry forward, said Mr. Combest.

 

Yesterday, Lubbock Chamber of Commerce hosted Salute to Ag Luncheon as part of National Ag Day celebration in Lubbock. In that event, Mr. Combest and his associate, Tom Sell of Lubbock- based Combest, Sell & Associates explained to farmers, academics and agribusiness people, some ways to accomplish bigger tasks such as passing farm bill legislation. Mr. Combest was the architect of the 2002 farm bill, who put together the bipartisan support for the bill, which provides the necessary support structure for production agriculture.

 

Lubbock is the epicenter of cotton production and research and has a thriving agribusiness such as insurance and lending agencies. Murvat Musa, Executive Director of Lubbock-based Reese Technology Center stated ”cotton's importance to the West Texas region goes beyond economics. It's truly embedded in the culture and is vital for future generations and the prosperity of families that have been providing cotton to the world.”

 

Trade is important stated, Mr. Combest. Echoing this sentiment, Tom Sell stated that United States produces more than it can consume and hence fair trade deal is important.

 

Getting to know people, putting alliances together and having a collective voice such as Chambers of Commerce are needed, at times when there are severe competitions for resources.

Governments around the world need to support research and programs to boost production, given many uncertainties that exits in the agriculture and manufacturing sectors.

 

Obviously, proposed reductions in U.S. agriculture department’s budget is ringing some alarm bells among researchers and producers.

 

In addressing this issue, Steve Verett, Executive Vice President of Lubbock-based Plains Cotton Growers aptly stated that U.S. Presidents’ budget is a blueprint that hints about the priorities of the administration. However, the proposed cuts to USDA are troubling as they represent significant reductions to programs such as agricultural research and the delivery of programs through the Farm Service Agency.

 

 

Verett, who has been with Plains Cotton Growers since 1997, practices on a daily basis, those traits that were expressed by the Congressman to be essential tools to thrive in the cotton industry. Verett embodies the spirit of hard working farmers of West Texas, who believe in shared responsibility, fair trade and good civic and professional ethics.

 

·         March 22 is United Nations World Water Day

·         Products from specialty chemicals company LANXESS render valuable services in industry and everyday life

·         Ion exchange resins from Leverkusen, reverse osmosis membrane elements from Bitterfeld and iron oxide adsorbers form Krefeld remove hazardous substances from this precious resource

 

Cologne – Water is the source of all life. All the more important it is therefore for us to manage it responsibly, and that means in industrial production too. Nearly one-quarter of global water consumption is attributed to industrial production. The global volume of wastewater is accordingly high. When it comes to wastewater – the subject of this year's United Nations World Water Day on March 22 – the goal therefore is: to avoid and recycle instead of conventional disposal. LANXESS is leading the way in this field starting with its own production facilities. For example, the volume of process wastewater produced relative to product output has fallen by six percent Group-wide in the last five years.

 

The “blue gold” is becoming ever more precious to mankind, because many people today have no access to clean drinking water. According to figures from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Unicef, some 1.8 billion people resort to polluted water to satisfy their thirst. Every year, nearly 850,000 people die as a result of drinking polluted water or poor hygiene conditions. Population growth, environmental pollution and climate change could greatly exacerbate this situation in the decades ahead.


Solutions for clean water

 

There is a great deal of potential for using process water sustainably and minimizing wastewater in industry. The chemical industry bears a particular responsibility for water because it can provide key solutions. With decades of experience in water treatment, innovative products and technologies, LANXESS is meeting these challenges head-on. Reverse osmosis and ion exchange in water treatment play a vital role in achieving these goals. The market for reverse osmosis membrane elements is currently projected to grow at an above-average rate of 10 percent annually over the next three years. In the case of ion exchange resins, future growth is predicted to average four percent per year.

 

Ion exchange resins: tiny beads with a big impact

 

An efficient technology from LANXESS for treating water is the use of Lewatit ion exchange and specialty adsorber resins. Among other applications, ion exchange resins are used to remove pollutants, such as nickel, nitrate, perchlorate, borate and hydrocarbons, from drinking water.

 

During the ion exchange process, contaminated water flows through a container filled with ion exchange resin. It filters the contaminants, binding the ions of the pollutants and replacing them with harmless ions. A variety of resins are used, depending on the pollutant. In the treatment of wastewater, the ion exchange resins remove heavy metals, such as mercury or cadmium. In addition, precious metals, such as copper or platinum, can be filtered out and then used for other purposes. Industrial applications include the treatment of water for industrial processes in power plants. These costly facilities need large volumes of cooling and process water, which have to be demineralized to protect the systems against limescale, for example.

 

The microchip and pharmaceutical industries require water in extremely pure form. Lewatit is used in these industries to produce ultra-pure water, which is a vital manufacturing resource.

 

Modern membrane filtration technology

 

The membrane elements in LANXESS’s Lewabrane line of products are spirally wound, thin-film, composite membranes. They filter out undesirable substances from water, such as salts, pesticides, herbicides, viruses, bacteria and particulates. The product line includes elements for all the main reverse osmosis applications, including desalinating seawater, brackish water and low-salinity water. Leading fields of application include the production and treatment of drinking water, but also the treatment of process water, other industrial water, and wastewater.

 

Among the most important applications for reverse osmosis membranes are the treatment of process water for power plants and the generation of ultrapure water in the microelectronics sector.

 

Another area of application for reverse osmosis membranes is the production of drinking water from both brackish water and seawater. This method is used on a large scale in cities and municipalities and on a small scale in restaurants, hotels and on cruise ships. The membranes lower the salt and particle content of the water and are often combined with ion exchange resins to form a highly efficient and very powerful demineralization system.

 

Lewabrane-brand membrane elements are manufactured at a high-tech, fully automated production plant in Bitterfeld. The membrane chemistry depends on a strongly crosslinked polyamide layer that displays high resistance to chemical cleansers, higher rejection of complex salt mixtures and a low surface charge, which reduces the tendency toward fouling. Since their market introduction in 2012, tens of thousands of Lewabrane filter elements have been installed in more than 70 countries.

Arsenic: the invisible threat

 

Arsenic pollution is one of the most dangerous forms of drinking water contamination. You can't taste it, you can't smell it, but the toxic substance accumulates in the body. Some very high concentrations of arsenic occur in the groundwater in many regions of the United States, South America and Asia. Elevated arsenic levels are often found in Europe, too, for example in the United Kingdom. It is estimated that more than 100 million people worldwide drink water with an arsenic content higher than 50 micrograms per liter. Both the European Union and the United States have adopted the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommended limit of 10 milligrams per liter of water in new legislation.

 

Arsenic is a semi-metal that occurs in nature in the form of minerals. Under certain conditions, highly toxic arsenic compounds can be washed out of the stone and pass into groundwater. Numerous medical studies document the chronic illnesses suffered by people who drink water contaminated with arsenic for extended periods, including skin disorders and carcinomas.

 

The hybrid adsorber Lewatit FO 36 and the iron oxide adsorber Bayoxide E33 are specially designed to remove arsenic from drinking water and wastewater. The core of the Bayoxide system is a solid bed of iron oxide beads. They have finely structured surfaces that adsorb pollutants when contaminated water flows over them. The beads are very stable in water and do not break down. They consist of minute particles that can only be seen under a high-resolution electron microscope. Every gram of these particles has a surface area of around 150 square meters, i.e. the floor area of an entire apartment on one gram of material, and it is on this surface that the arsenic is selectively adsorbed.


Wastewater treatment and rehabilitation in mining

 

 

Bayoxide E33 from LANXESS not only helps to treat drinking water. Other fields of application include wastewater treatment, e.g. in mining, or the treatment of contaminated groundwater in the vicinity of abandoned industrial plants.

New sustainability in the tanning process

·           LANXESS develops innovative technology to recycle leftover leather

·           Resource-efficient manufacturing of leather chemicals

·           Joint project with INVITE research institute and HELLER-LEDER tannery

·           Investment volume of approx. five million euros

·           Funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

·           Pilot plant scheduled to be taken into operation in mid-2017

 

Cologne – Specialty chemicals company LANXESS is leading a research and development project to investigate an innovative technology for a new recycling concept in leather manufacturing. Under the title “Resource-efficient manufacturing of leather chemicals” (ReeL), LANXESS Leather business unit is working with the Leverkusen-based research institute INVITE to develop a modular pilot plant that can use shavings previously disposed in most cases and organic biomass to create “X-Biomer” brand retanning agents for manufacturing leather. The manufacturing equipment is designed for use directly on-site at the tanneries. The feasibility tests are set to take place with the third project partner, HELLER-LEDER GmbH Co. KG tannery in Hehlen, Lower Saxony.

 

“As one of the largest manufacturers of chemicals for the leather industry, we consider the sustainability of these processes to of particular importance to us,” says Luis López-Remón, head of the Leather business unit at LANXESS. “Our goal with this project is to highlight how production waste during leather manufacture can be recycled directly in the tannery, thus significantly improving the sustainability profile compared to the conventional production of retanning agents in centralized production facilities located far away from the tanneries.”

 

In this way, a tannery would be able to automatically and largely independently manufacture enough retanning agents, such as the
X-Biomer range offered by LANXESS, to meet part of its own needs. “I feel this approach is an extremely promising step toward an even more sustainable production concept,” says Dr. Dietrich Tegtmeyer, head of the project at LANXESS. “First of all, ‘in situ’ and ‘just in time’ production save an enormous amount of logistics and packaging resources and on top of that there is no need to dispose the production waste as it can serve as raw material for the retanning chemicals required.”

 

The joint project has a total investment volume of around five million euros and was launched in January 2016. Almost half of this investment is provided by a grant from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) which runs for three years. LANXESS is currently working on adapting and optimizing procedures in its Leverkusen laboratory to perfect the chemical recycling process. The INVITE research institute is primarily responsible for planning and constructing the pilot plant. To test the innovative production concept under real conditions, one of these plants will be completed in April 2017, and after some cold commissioning tests to check the process control technology, it will go into feasibility operations at HELLER-LEDER in mid-2017.

 

So far, the modular plant concepts designed by INVITE were primarly developed to achieve technological process improvements and flexible, continuous production processes. In this project the benefits of the concept’s application as decentralized production concept for a mature industry come to the fore for the first time. “For us, this project idea is an important step toward opening up a broader application spectrum,” says Armin Schweiger, Managing Director of INVITE. “We also see the ReeL project as a significant boost to technology.”

 

 

Complete recycling without emissions

 

A medium-sized tannery produces between one and two metric tons of shavings a day. Using a production plant, e.g. leased from LANXESS, the company could manufacture a comparable volume of liquid X-Biomer directly on site. Every trace of the waste is recycled, leaving no residue, and without generating any emissions.

 

Tegtmeyer: “The goal of the project is to be able to offer X-Biomer to the tanner at a similar cost to the procurement of conventional retanning agents. The lack of logistics outlay should, for example, offset the higher production costs for the design. Piloting is being carried out to verify this concept model. In addition, the project will most certainly benefit sustainability.”

 

The project is receiving funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of its “r+Impuls – Innovative Technologien für Ressourceneffizienz – Impulse für industrielle Ressourceneffizienz” (r+Impulse – innovative technologies for resource efficiency – impetus for industrial resource efficiency). This program supports projects that are bringing innovative technologies and products out of the laboratory and into commercial use.

 

 

The Leather business unit is part of LANXESS’s Performance Chemicals segment, which recorded sales of EUR 2.1 billion in fiscal 2016.
