ATIRA for More Centres of Excellence Along with Composites CoE

may 14 2012

The Ahmedabad Textile Industry's Research Association (ATIRA) is planning to set up more number of center of excellence (CoE) along with the government of India aided Rs. 25 crore (CoE) for composites. The industry research body already houses CoEs in Protective Textiles (Protex) and Geo-textiles as well at its premises in Ahmedabad.

According to Sanjay Lalbhai, Chairman of the Council of Administration at ATIRA and CMD, Arvind Ltd., ATIRA has submitted a proposal to the State Government for expanding the scope of the existing Pilot Plant to a Center of Excellence for Nano-fibre – Nano-web in view of large potential and significant benefits for development of sustainable technology in high priority areas. ATIRA is also considering setting up of two more centers of excellence including COE for Wet Processing for Textile and COE for Effluent Treatment – water management and zero liquid discharge. The estimated additional cost for the Nano-fiber and Nano-web is around Rs 25 crore. "ATIRA won the project to set up center of excellence for composites in a national competition staying ahead of formidable bidders like IIT-Delhi, Shriram Institute-Delhi, and UDCT-Mumbai. As a result ATIRA has been sanctioned a grant of Rs 25 crore from Ministry of Textiles. The state government will extend financial support for the construction of a new building and purchase of capital equipment for the COE and for setting up of the pilot plant," said Lalbhai. For the CoE in composites, ATIRA has collaborated with the Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT) of Fraunhofer Germany.
