Synopsis of presentation on “Electrospinning of Cellulosic Nanofibers”
Aug 26, 2015

Presented by Dr. Dr. Sandip Bose on 26th August 2015.

Dr. Sandip Bose introduces the concept of electrospinning as a special fibre spinning technology. Explaining the unique features of electrospun fibres and its applications the challenges associated with electrospinning lingo-cellulosic fibres were presented. Electrospinning of sisal, a fibre similar to jute in chemical composition, with trifluroacetic acid and electrospinning of different forms of lignin with PEO as spinning assistant was highlighted. The effect of different parameter on electrospinning was also discussed. A correlation between fibre diameter and power requirement for electrospinning was also drawn.


Application of Jute-LLDPE Composites for Consumer's Product Development
Aug 19, 2015

Presented by Ms. Mamata Sarkar on 19th August 2015.

The presentation is based on an exploratory work done by IJIRA with Patton International, Kolkata. The presentation revealed the advantages and scopes of using jute in LLDPE matrix for consumer's product development. The presenter described the use of Kneader Extruder system and rotational moulding system for producing water tank, which shows property improvement by incorporating jute with LLDPE.

De-Lignification of Bamboo By Microorganisms
Aug 12, 2015

Presented by Ms Ipsita Roy on 12th August 2015

Delignification of bamboo has been carried out by two fungi such as, Penicillium sp. and Pythium sp. to separate its cellulose nanofibrils. Isolated fungi have been found to secrete delignifying enzymes such as lignin peroxidise, manganese peroxidise and laccase. Such microbial delignification process for biopulping of lignocellulosics is found to have good future potential.

Designing of new Metallic Card Clothing for Jute Cards
Aug 5, 2015

Presented by Shri Biswarup Nandy on 5th August 2015

The presentation is based on one previous exploratory work done by IJIRA himself collaboration with MILTEX ENG Coimbatore in 2006-2009.IJIRA had explored the possibility of introduction of metallic card clothing in Finisher Card. The presenter has highlighted the positive impacts in terms of quality, cost effectiveness by using MCC over conventional card and meta pin and staves. The presenter also discussed what were the various interesting and learning  experiences and hurdles were been faced during the work and what could be the future road map for successful introduction of metallic card clothing in jute card.
