2018 R&D 100 Awards - Special Recognition Award (Green Tech) - Bronze Award
This project aims to extend the applications of bio-based and eco-friendly polymers and fibres to "green" textiles, which is based on polymer blending materials, texturing filament yarns, textile and dyeing processes, as well as 3D printing technology of multi-materials.
This project includes three parts:
- Development of new spinning, knitting, dyeing, and finishing processes and fashion style design to manufacture a series of silk-like, light-thin and top-grade "green" knitting.
- To research and develop bio-based medical compression stockings which are light, thin and smart for treating varicose vein;
- Based on the novel 3D printing technology, to develop the fabrication technique of degradable biomaterials with complex-shaped, porous and pseudo-textile structures.
