ICAR-NINFET organized training programme entitled ‘Nonwoven Fabric from Natural Fibres: Production, Properties and Evaluation’

Kolkata, October 27-29, 2021: 

The ICAR-National Institute of Natural Fibre Engineering and Technology organized a three days virtual self- sponsored training programme on “Nonwoven Fabric from Natural Fibres: Production, Properties and Evaluation” during October 27-29, 2021.

In his welcome address, Dr. D. B. Shakyawar, Director, greeted the participants and told that training on Natural fibre nonwoven is a new initiative of ICAR-NINFET. He made the participants aware about the significance of nonwoven and its rising application in the present time. He informed the participants who were Research Scholars, Scientists, Assistant Professors, Associate Professors and Managers that ICAR-NINFET is a pioneer institute which contributes massively in the research of nonwoven from all kind of natural fibres and expressed confidence that the trainees will be benefited immensely from this programme. 

The programme was aimed at apprising and encouraging the awareness of non-woven fabric from natural fibre which may eventually lead to its wide range of industrial application. This training programme covers the wide gamut of topics including production, extraction, instrumental evaluation and prospects of different types of natural fibre, non-woven fabric, and their application in agro-textiles and geotextile. 

Total 29 participants from different Universities, research institutes and Industry from all over the country have participated in this training programme. Faculty members from ICAR-NINFET have enlightened the participants with their scientific and technical deliberations on non-woven fabric from natural fibre. 

A book on “Nonwoven Fabric from Natural Fibres: Production, Properties and Evaluation” has been released in this occasion. 

Dr. S. Debnath and Dr. Sanchita Biswas Murmu look after the whole programme as course Co-ordinators under the supervision of Dr. S. Sengupta, course Director and HoD, Mechanical Processing Division.
