PolyU - Wuyi University research collaboration in textile technology

June 2019 - PolyU - Wuyi University research collaboration in textile technology

PolyU and Wuyi University (WYU) signed a collaborative framework agreement to join hands for research on the development of green and healthy textile materials over a span of three years. The collaboration marks an important milestone of joint R&D effort between Hong Kong and Jiangmen – two major cities in the Greater Bay Area.

As one of the world's largest textile and garment production and consumption regions, the Mainland's growing demand for "green and healthy" textile has created a huge market potential for antibacterial and mildew resistant textiles. The collaboration aims to facilitate the experts from the two universities to innovate dyeing and finishing technologies for fabrics so as to address the health and environmental concerns associated with man-made fibers and their chemical processes. The research will also study the ingredients and methodologies to enhance the antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal performances in textiles.
