China's power supply tightens effect. Because of many factors including coal prices increase and surging demand, East China has led to side effects at factories of all kinds. Some of the factories cut the output or even halted production entirely. East China is the textile industry base. It accounts for nearly 30 percent of the national capacity. Companies have been asked to reduce power usage and cut production by the officials. "The suspension is quite long, and it will affect business as order deliveries will be delayed," a dyeing company executive in Keqiao told Nikkei Asia. It has affected nearly 160 energy-intensive companies, mainly the textile, dyeing, and chemical fiber industries. information source: Global Times, Nikkei Asia

The Secret of Athletes. The Tokyo Olympics Game is raising the passion of everyone in the world. Have you ever noticed the outfit of athletes?The functional sportwear is designed for the better performance of. One of the most famous is the Vaporfly Next% series of Nike. Moisture absorbing and quick dry The most important function of sportswear is moisture control. Moisture absorbing and quick drying fabrics ensure that the sportswear can cope with various exercise intensities and environments. The effects of different yarns and fabrics are very different. The main purpose of moisture control Thermoregulation Control the weight of sweat accumulated in the garment Reduce blisters and inflammation when the skin becomes damp Reduce the reproduction of microorganisms. Although it’s difficult to go to Tokyo this year, through the TV broadcast, we may see some points that have not been noticed in the past.

Bio Membrane｜ Hwa Fune eco series.
Most everyday consumer and industrial products are made using non-renewable resources, such as petrochemicals. The overuse of these finite resources is not sustainable. Biomass products use naturally-derived glucose instead of petroleum feedstocks. Reducing the use of fossil fuels can not only reduce greenhouse gas production, but also allow products to decompose naturally and return to nature. Reduce greenhouse gases by more than 40% Non-renewable energy use about 45% less Process Technology Harvest Renewably sourced feedstocks are harvested, dried and then wet-milled to create a range of carbohydrate rich feedstocks such as glucose. Fermentation Glucose is converted into 1,3 Propanediol using a patented microorganism under exact temperatures and conditions. Refining The 1,3 Propanediol is refined to a final purity of 99.7% by deactivating and removing the microorganism, water, and other byproducts.

The Problems After the Epidemic. With the increase in vaccine delivery rates in advanced countries, some important cities have begun to unblock. Whether it is increased or anticipated increase in demand, it is the long awaited result of various industries. However, the industries cannot quickly respond to market changes. Global transportation issues Trade volume began to reboundin the second half of 2020, whichcaught container manufacturersby surprise. New containerorders could not be digested,and the demand for containerswas clearly in short supply. InDecember 2020, the CAx(Container Availability Index)once fell to a record low of 0.13 Shortage of raw materials The epidemic has forced people to stay at home, sothedemand for services is transformed into demand for goods.But take the United States as an example. Even though thevaccine delivery rate is now increasing and cities areunblocking, the demand for goods is still high.With the slow replenishment of labor, upstreammanufacturers cannot increase production capacity even ifthey receive a large number of orders. The short term of oilalso impacts many livelihood products, such as textiles.

Bio Nylon｜ Hwa Fune eco series.
In the 21st century, consumers are increasingly demanding products that reflect their more sustainable values and lifestyles. Chemistry is giving way to synthetic biology, and engineered organisms—using the same kind of fermentation we use to make wine, bread, or kombucha—can now make the chemical building blocks for shoes, clothes, and carpets. *Castor oilCastor oil, derived from the seeds of the plant Ricinus communis, forms the basis of sebacic acid, which is the product’s renewable raw material content.Many manufacturers use castor oil to make biomass nylon. While maintaining the quality of nylon, it can also reduce fossil fuels and carbon emissions. BASF has developed a groundbreaking approach to derive products from renewable raw materials: Certified renewable feedstock is used to replace fossil resources at the beginning of the production process and is then allocated to sales products in the respective quantities.

Recycle Nylon｜ Hwa Fune eco series.
Today, many people are aware that even when they are dressing to impress the world, they must ensure that their dressing doesn't impact the environment. The textile waste recycling ensures that. Common nylon recycle material:•Post-industrial•Fishing Net•Buoy Most mechanically recycled materials are melted at high temperatures and then made into a reusable form. Nylon melts at a much lower temperature, which means contaminants remain alive or otherwise unscathed. For this reason, nylon must be thoroughly cleaned before being recycled. Good sources of clean, pure postconsumer nylon are difficult to find. 1.Post-industrial The post-industrial recycling is a common practice and has been there for years. The post-industrial waste includes the by-products from textile like fibers, trimmings left on the cutting room floor in apparel and other textile product manufacturing facilities. 2.Fishing Net Waste fishing nets are made of nylon with the high value, and the recycling technology is the most mature. The recycling methods can be divided into physical and chemical recycling. •Single-material waste nylon fishing nets are melted and re-spinned for physical recovery. •The chemical recovery: Through chemical processes such as cracking and fractionation is made into caprolactam (material for nylon 6), then pelletized and spinned. 3. Buoy There are 6% fishing nets, 9% traps and 29% tackle, including buoys and other fishery wastes become residual marine pollutants due to discarding every year. Those wastes not only polluting the ocean environment , they also would cause harm to living creatures due to entanglement. Seriously affect the ecological environment. It’s not news that marine waste is recycled into fabrics. The buoys can also be recycled and reconstituted into nylon. Buoys can become nylon 6.6 particles again after cracking, fractionation, and polymerized. Today, many people are aware that they must ensure their dressing doesn't impact the environment. The textile waste recycling ensures that. CONTACT US for more information or products. Information source: Fire2fashion<Managing textile waste>海洋保育屬<再生-海廢再利用>經濟部技術處<海洋環保新纖維開發-廢棄漁網循環再利用案例>
