Picanol will be present at Cinte Techtextil in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre! Visit us at booth E3-A15.
Driven by extensive investments in R&D, Picanol has grown into an industry leader for high-tech weaving machines in the sector of technical textiles. The various developments made in recent years clearly highlight this point and have resulted in the growing success of our weaving machines in technical segments.Petrochemicals CarbonFiber Textile
The wide OptiMax-i rapier machines can be equipped with positive guided grippers in widths up to 212 inches (540 centimeters). This demonstrates how Picanol can efficiently replace obsolete projectile technology for such applications as agro-textiles, packaging, and carpet backings.
Microfibres released during laundry pollute the environment considerably / TUV Rheinland to support members of The Microfibre Consortium (TMC) to enhance understanding of fibre shedding from textiles / Information at www.tuv.com/textiles
It happens a million times every second, worldwide. Yet for many people it is happening in secret. “With every wash, textiles shed microfibres.
But while cotton, as an organic material, degrades almost completely, synthetic fibres persist in the environment much longer,” explains Heather Ball, responsible for textile testing at TUV Rheinland in Western Europe. Only a few days ago, researchers from the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Great Britain published their latest measurements of micro plastics in the Atlantic Ocean. Petrochemicals CarbonFiber Textile
The experts assume that an estimated twelve to 21 million tonnes of waste are found in the upper layers of water in the first 200 meters alone. This also includes fibres shed from synthetically produced fibres. “The problem has long been recognized by experts. The microfibres in the wastewater are not completely filtered out by sewage treatment plants and thus end up in the waters or as sewage sludge on the fields”.

ePac operates a network of 18 community-based flexible packaging facilities in the US, United Kingdom, and Indonesia focused on supporting the growth of small and medium-sized companies. Through the power of digital printing every package produced can be serialized with a unique code that allows it to be tracked from production through reuse. Using IoT/Blockchain technology, data can be collected to provide tracking information to brands and retailers, while educating consumers about the package they just discarded and incentivizing them to practice a sustainable lifestyle.

Bioplastics are being touted by industry marketers as the solution to plastics pollution. But the idea that bottles and packaging made of plant-based material can simply be discarded and then break down and disappear is false – recycling and reuse are the only strategies that can work. Petrochemicals CarbonFiber Textile
Coca-Cola calls it the PlantBottle — a new kind of recyclable plastic container, 30 percent of which is made from sugar cane and other plants, with the remaining 70 percent made from traditional oil-based plastic. The company says that PlantBottle packaging now accounts for nearly a third of its North American bottle volume and seven percent globally.
Does the PlantBottle mean the giant soft drink company has cracked one of the world’s most serious environmental problems, the choking of the world with oil-based plastics that never completely break down and disappear? Hardly. Though companies like Coca-Cola and Pepsi are under public pressure to solve the problem of plastic pollution, they have so far been unable to find a material or method as cheap and effective as single-use plastic.
“If present trends continue, by 2050, there will be 12 billion metric tons of plastic in landfills.
That amount is 35,000 times as heavy as the Empire State Building.” If that isn’t a rallying cry, what is? Petrochemicals CarbonFiber Textile
The United States makes up 4% of the world’s population but produces more waste-to-population than any other country at 12%. “ India and China make up more than 36% of the world’s population and generate 27% of the world’s waste.
To make things worse, the U.S. needs help when it comes to disposing and reusing waste. Each year, approximately 90 million tons of extremely useful recyclable products are thrown away and sent to landfills,” said Chris Werth, VP of Marketing for AMP Robotics.
