Basics Intimate apparel

Basics Intimate apparel As a carpet fibre, the new material offers outstanding performance including durability, crush resistance and resilience. Best of all, is the benefit of permanent, natural stain resistance that won’t wash or wear off as topical stain treatments are prone to do. Even tough stains like mustard, ketchup and red wine will not penetrate carpets made with PTT fibres. Carpets made with Sorona are bleach- and UVresistant to reduce fading. DuPont has partnered with leading carpet and rug manufacturers across the globe to bring this environmentally friendly material into residential and commercial markets: SmartStrand ® & What Moves You by Mohawk, eco+ ® Soft to Touch by Godfrey Hirst, Amaize by Balta, SENS luxury rugs from HBC Bulckaert, Starck by Fletco. DuPont is also working with the automotive industry to offer similar stain resistant carpets to automotive manufacturers for carpeting and car mats [12] . In March of 2009, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued a new subgeneric – ‘triexta’ – for fibres made from PTT polymers. Triexta fibres can be used for apparel as well as for carpet applications.

Catering Two days (7-8 October 2013) € 790 (incl. dinner Buffet) Three days (7-9 October 2013): € 945 (incl. dinner buffet) First day (7 October 2013): € 470 (incl. dinner buffet) Second Day (8 October 2013): € 420 Third Day (9 October 2013): € 370 plus 19 % VAT. Undergraduate and PhD students can attend the conference with a 50 % discount. The main topics will be: 7 October: Political and technical challenges 8 October: CO 2 -based polymers 9 October: CO 2 -based chemicals and fuels A new paradigm for the industrial chemical production has arisen over the last few years: the CO 2 economy. According to this vision, CO 2 is no longer seen as a waste product with dangerous environmental effects but increasingly as a feedstock for chemicals, fuels and polymers. For the second year in a row, the conference „CO 2 as chemical feedstock - a challenge for sustainable chemistry“ will concentrate on this issue. It will be held on 7-9 October 2013 in the „Haus der Technik“ in Essen, Germany and will be the biggest event on Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) in 2013. More than 300 participants from the leading industrial and academic players are expected to attend the conference.

The book is intended to offer a rapid and uncomplicated introduction into the subject of bioplastics, and is aimed at all interested readers, in particular those who have not yet had the opportunity to dig deeply into the subject, such as students, those just joining this industry, and lay readers. It gives an introduction to plastics and bioplastics, explains which renewable resources can be used to produce bioplastics, what types of bioplastic exist, and which ones are already on the market. Further aspects, such as market development, the agricultural land required, and waste disposal, are also examined. An extensive index allows the reader to find specific aspects quickly, and is complemented by a comprehensive literature list and a guide to sources of additional information on the Internet. The author Michael Thielen is editor and publisher bioplastics MAGAZINE. He is a qualified machinery design engineer with a degree in plastics technology from the RWTH University in Aachen. He has written several books on the subject of blowmoulding technology and disseminated his knowledge of plastics in numerous presentations, seminars, guest lectures and teaching assignments. 110 pages full color, paperback ISBN 978-3-9814981-1-0: Bioplastics ISBN 978-3-9814981-0-3: Biokunststoffe Pre-order now for € 18.65 or US-$ 25.00 (+ VAT where applicable, plus shipping and handling, ask for details) order at www.bioplasticsmagazine.de/books, by phone +49 2161 6884463 or by e-mail books@bioplasticsmagazine.com
