Training on Basics of "Knitting and Knit Garments" at ICAR-CIRCOT, Mumbai

About the Training Programme Course

India is the second largest producer of textiles and garments in the world with a market size of around US $137 billion. The Indian textiles and apparel industry is expected to grow to a size of US $ 223 billion by 2021. Knitwear is an important market segment of industry that has become popular among all men, women and kids. The Indian knitting industry is one of the most innovative global producers of knitwear products. Today, there has been a tremendous change in technology. A large number of sophisticated computerized knitting, embroidery machines, dyeing machines, state of the art sewing lines, CAD/CAM systems, large scale processing machines are used in Indian knitting industry. The production speeds have raised in recent years and the buyers are more and more conscious about the quality of garments manufactured in the mills. Hence it is necessary to know the various aspects related to knit fabric production, garment production and quality control of fabrics and garments. In view of this, ICAR-CIRCOT is conducting a training programme on “Basics of Knitting and Knit Garments” for the benefit of industry personnel, researchers, academician and students.

Training Program on Absorbent Cotton Technology at ICAR-CIRCOT, Mumbai

About the training programme

Cotton, the king of natural fibres is the major raw material for the textile industry. As much as 94% of the total cotton fibre consumed is used by the spinning sector for making yarns. However, a significant quantity of cotton, about 6% is also utilized for technical applications, such as for the manufacture of “absorbent cotton”. Absorbent cotton (popularly known as cotton wool or surgical cotton), is a medical product used to absorb body fluids. Apart from medical applications, absorbent cotton is also used in various non-medical applications especially beauty and personal care sector with products like wiping pads, ear buds etc. The demand for absorbent cotton is on the rise with increase in population and boom in the healthcare and cosmetic sectors. There is a good market potential both in the domestic as well as in the export market. India, being the largest producer of cotton in the world with a vibrant textile industry has abundant supply of the raw material for the preparation of absorbent cotton and can be a prominent producer of this important product in the world. This training programme on Absorbent Cotton Technology has been designed by CIRCOT for the benefit of personnel from industry, entrepreneurs as well as researchers to help them in understanding various processes involved in the production of absorbent cotton and testing methods for checking the product quality as per Pharmacopeia norms.

Objectives

  • To acquaint the trainees about basic and advanced chemical and mechanical processes involved in the production of absorbent cotton
  • To apprise the trainees about the market potential of absorbent cotton
  • To introduce the trainees to various testing methods for absorbent cotton

Course content

  • Chemistry and preparatory process of cotton fibre for absorbent cotton
  • Eco- friendly preparatory processes for absorbent cotton
  • Mechanical processing for preparation of absorbent cotton
  • Environmental issues in the absorbent cotton industry
  • Demonstrations on absorbent cotton preparation and testing

ICAR-CIRCOT Mumbai is conducting a training program on Quality Evaluation of Cotton

About the Training Programme Course

In India, cotton quality evaluation is accomplished largely by hand and eye methods, during purchasing of seed cotton from farmers by traders and ginning factory owners, which is known to suffer from limitations of inconsistency, subjectivity and inaccuracy. After globalization of market economy, cotton community all over has become quality conscious. Hence, there is need for well-trained personnels in the world to evaluate cotton on objective basis. ICAR-CIRCOT, with its appropriate infrastructure for training, conducts specialised training course to impart adequate theoretical and practical knowledge in the evaluation of cotton. The course is useful for persons related to cotton trade and industry. 

Objective

  • Skill development on cotton grading, quality evaluation & marketing to cater the needs of Indian cotton sector
  • Provide hands on experience on visual grading, and instrumental methods
  • Know-how on effect of ginning & spinning on fibre and yarn quality and economics of cotton processing

Course Content  

  • Global perspective of Cotton
  • Importance of cotton & its scenario in India and economics of cotton processing
  • Importance of quality evaluation and grading of cotton
  • Cotton fibre quality evaluation:-Theoretical background, sampling, logic and methods
  • Instrumental measurement of length, fineness, maturity, strength, trash content & fibre quality index
  • HVI & AFIS testing of cotton
  • Contamination of cotton
  • Marketing and commercial aspect of cotton
  • Fibre attributes and their effect on yarn quality
  • Advance in ginning & its significance on cotton quality
  • Good management practices for cotton harvesting & storage
  • Spinning behavior of Indian Cotton
  • Techno-entreprenurial activities related to cotton
  • Visit to Cotton Association of India (CAI), Mumbai

Training on Value Addition to Cottonseed

About the Training Programme Course

Cotton being the major textile fibre in India, is an important cash crop. We are now the largest cotton producer in the world. Fibres however constitute only one third of the weight of the harvested seed cotton and the remaining two third is constituted by the seed. At current production levels, about 11 milion tonnes cottonseed is produced in our country. Cottonseed contains some very short fibres known as linters and is rich in oil and protein. It therefore is a valuable resource but its potential has not yet been fully realized. Linters, like cotton fibres are a very pure source of cellulose and have numerous applications in preparation of high value cellulose derivatives, regenerated cellulose fibres and high quality pulp and paper. But most of the cottonseed is currently being crushed directly without removing linters and hulls which reduces oil recovery and also prevents usage of resulting meal for high end applications such as poultry and fish feed due to high content of fibres and low protein content. Scientific processing of cottonseed results in realization of full value of cottonseed and results in almost complete recovery of oil and other valuable products such as linters, hulls and de-oiled high protein cottonseed meal. The products thus obtained can be further value added to get higher economic benefit. This training programme aims to create awareness among the participants about the benefits of scientific processing of cottonseed and various technologies developed at CIRCOT for value addition of various products obtained from cottonseed

Objective

  • To impart knowledge about scientific processing of cottonseed and its benefits
  • To teach the technologies for value addition to cottonseed
  • To impart skill on various analytical methods for analysis of cottonseed

Course Content  

  • Scientific processing and value addition to cottonseed
  • Prospects of cottonseed oil
  • Value addition to cottonseed by fermentation technology
  • Diversified uses of cotton linters
  • Value added products from linters- nanocellulose, pulp and paper
  • Utilization of cottonseed for feed and food purposes
  • Demonstrations and hands-on training on cottonseed and meal analysis
