The Institute of Biopolymers and Chemical Fibres (IBWCh) founded in 1952, specializes in R&D aimed at biopolymers, functional thermoplastics including biodegradable, bioprocesses, biocatalysis in polymers and fibres, biomaterials, nanotechnology, pulp& paper and environmental protection.
Role in the project
IBWCh will developed spun-bonded technology for composite non-wovens for the preparation a new assortment of hydrophobic textiles. Composite non-woven will be produced by spun-bonded technique from fibres directly extruded from the spinneret. This method already patented by IBWCh, allows the production of biobased fibers by the incorporation of feathers into a polymeric matrix during the well-known spun-bond process.
