    Japanese biotechnology company Spiber has partnered with Japanese sportswear manufacturer Goldwin to announce the launch of its 2023 autumn and winter collections for five brands, using protein fibers brewed from structural protein materials. The demand for alternative fabrics that do not contain petroleum or animal products in the textile industry is growing,and brewed protein fiber is a structural protein material that are promising to meet this demand. Due to the limited availability of Brewed Protein Fiber, all items were previously sold in limited quantities by lottery. Starting from this autumn, this series will be released on a large-scale production system and sold globally and sold worldwide. Since 2015 ,Goldwin has been working with Spiber to develop structural protein materials for apparel products with the goal of solving different environmental challenges related to the apparel industry. Brewed protein materials are fibers, films and other types of materials manufactured through the fermentation of plant-based ingredients. (The sugars from renewable biomass such as sugarcane and corn are used as the main raw material for brewing protein materials, known as microbial nutrients.) This novel material was created using Spiber's proprietary technology platform, which enables customized design and molecular engineering of naturally inspired protein polymers. These materials can provide alternative solutions to a variety of traditional animal-based, plant-based and synthetic materials for a variety of uses, including textile applications in the apparel industry.

  • The Earthquake in Turkey Halted Paper Mills
    The Earthquake in Turkey Halted Paper Mills
    The massive earthquake in Turkey on February 6, which shocked the whole country and killed tens of thousands of people, will also have an impact on the Turkish paper industry. For example, Kahramanmaraş, the epicenter of the earthquake, is home to two paper mills, Kipas Kagit and KMK Paper. Both factories are now in a state of shutdown. Kipas Kagit produces waste paperboard base paper at its factory in Kahramanmaraş with an annual capacity of approximately 450,000 tons. KMK Paper's factory in Kahramanmaraş produces recycled paper-based corrugated base paper, gray paperboard and core paperboard with a capacity of 150,000 tones/year. Other paper mills in the region may also be affected, although there is no information about them yet. For example, Essel Kagit runs a tissue mill in Osmaniye, and Ankutsan's containerboard mill plans to add a new machine this year, which is located in Adana, along with several other paper mills. Shortly after the earthquake, Osmaniye Tissue Factory in Essex County showed that although the tissue PM was not damaged and the factory itself did not suffer any serious damage, it decided to stop production out of concern for the suffering of the workers and human beings. According to well-informed people, Osmaniye is now up and running again after about a week of standstill. The factory can produce about 31,000 tons of tissue paper per year.

  • Papermaking White Water Closed, Resulting In Waste Accumulation, How To Do?
    Papermaking White Water Closed, Resulting In Waste Accumulation, How To Do?
    Technology collation With the improvement of the closed circulation degree of the white water of paper machine, the accumulation and concentration of interfering anionic impurities in the wet part will be higher , and the problem of anionic waste will be more obvious, just like lipid in the blood, which needs to be dealt with in time. Anionic wastes include hemi cellulose, lipophilic extract, lignin, neutral polysaccharide, charged polysaccharide, protein, etc. And colloidal particles are composed of extracts, carbohydrates, and lignins. These substances are divided into two categories: dissolved and colloidal. Dissolved and colloidal substances are the most important components in the closed cycle of papermaking wastewater. Dissolved substance (DS) and colloidal substance (CS) in white water are collectively referred to as colloidal substance (DCS). In papermaking system, the content of anionic garbage can be expressed by cationic demand CD of slurry filter. DCS harm and source The main harm caused by the accumulation of anionic waste is as follows: ① The anionic substance in DCS is the main component of anionic garbage, in high concentration, it will weaken the use of cationic additives. ② Colloids are viscous and easy to deposit, which is an important cause of secondary adhesive obstacles. ③ Excessive accumulation of DCS leads to deterioration of chemical environment of water system and abnormal operation. ④ Increaseing the water treatment load and chemical dosage, hinders the process water closed circulation and causes rot pulp. On one hand ,DCS comes from soluble wood extract (small seed lignin, starch, sugar, etc.) ,resin and other natural substances, on the other hand, it comes from waste pulp mixed with adhesive substances. At the same time, the chemical additives added in the papermaking process and the fine fiber fragments in the pulp are also important components of DCS. The geometric size of these substances is generally less than 10μm, so it is quite difficult to control, and the control object is limited to colloidal substances (CS). Effect on paper property After the system closed cycle, the anionic waste will directly affect the operation of paper machine and the quality of paper. However, due to the different raw materials, types of paper and production conditions of paper mills, there is no unified evaluation standard for the effect of closed white water cycle on paper performance. For newsprint, the breaking length, tensile strength, breaking index, elongation and binding force all decreased with the increase of DCS. In terms of optical properties, the whiteness decreases with the increase of pollutants, and the light scattering coefficient, light absorption coefficient and opacity generally increase with the increase of pollutants. The results show that that CS has more influence on the breaking length of newsprint than DS. For cardboard and packaging paper, the physical strength is not adversely affec...

  • Emulsification and Solubilization of Surfactants
    Emulsification and Solubilization of Surfactants
    The trend of the steady growth of surfactants in the world provides a good external environment for the development and expansion of the cosmetic industry, and the requirements of product structure, variety, performance and technology are becoming higher and higher. Therefore, it is necessary to systematically develop safe, mild, easy to biodegrade and have special functions of surfactants to provide theoretical basis for the development and application of new products. It is important to develop glycoside surfactants, and a variety of polyols and alcohol-based surfactants can be developed. Systematic research and development of soybean phospholipid surfactants; To develop sucrose fatty acid vinegar series products, strengthen the research of compounding technology, and expand the application range of existing products. The phenomenon of uniformly emulsifying insoluble substances in water to form emulsions is called emulsification. Emulsifiers are mainly used in cosmetics to produce pastes and lotions. Common silty cream and Zhongxing cream are O/W type emulsions that can be emulsified with anionic emulsifier fatty acid soap (soap). It is easy to make emulsion with less oil by emulsifying with soap, and the gelation of soap can make it have greater viscosity. For the cold cream containing a lot of oil phase, the emulsion is W/O type, can choose the natural lanolin emulsification with large water absorption and viscosity. At present, the most widely used nonionic emulsifier is safe and less irritating. The phenomenon of increasing the solubility of slightly soluble or insoluble substances is called solubilization. When a surfactant is added to water, the surface tension of the water begins to drop sharply, forming micelles of surfactant molecules. The concentration of surfactant used to form micelles is called the critical micelle concentration. When the surfactant concentration reaches the critical micellar concentration, the micellar can attract the oil or solid particles to the end of the oleophilic group, so it can increase the solubility of the slightly soluble or insoluble matter.
