Presented by Dr. Dipanjan Basu, Associate Professor, University of Waterloo, Canada on 10th June, 2016
The presentation was delivered on notions of sustainability of Geotextiles and its application to geotechnical engineering. It was also focused on the latest research activities related to sustainability in geotechnical engineering, including utilization of recycled materials and use of alternate materials and construction methods to reduce carbon foot print. The use of Jute geotextiles in geotechnical engineering was described from the perspective of sustainability with examples.
Manufacturing of Robust Natural Fibre Preforms Using Bacterial Cellulose as BinderJun 1, 2016
Presented by Ms. Ipsita Roy, Research Associate, IJIRA on 1st June, 2016
Bacterial cellulose (BC), produced by aerobic bacteria received ample of attention due to its unique physiochemical properties compared to plant cellulose. BC finds its application in medical, food and textile industries. BC can be used as a binder in the manufacturing of lignocellulosic natural fibre preforms and composites as it has been proven to increase the tensile properties of the mentioned. Natural fibres like jute, sisal, hemp, etc., can be used along with BC as binder to manufacter better quality Green Composites.
An over view of reactive dyes.May 25, 2016
Presented by Sampurna Chatterjee on 25th May, 2016
This presentation highlighted on the chemistry of the reactive dyes and its evolution. The use of the poly functional reactive dye helps to reduce the water consumption, salt consumption & also the dyeing cycle time. Simultaneously it also reduces the energy consumption and CO2 emission.
