Reduction of manufacturing Process & Cost for JUTE sacks [Hemless bag & its testing]
Nov 9, 2016

Presented by Mr. Kaustav Roy, Research Assistant, IJIRA on 09th Nov. 2016

An attempt has been made for establishing the minimum strength required at the mouth of the 50 kg jute bag and thereby justifying the concept of using Hemless bag technique by an experimental method. The mentioned concept has been discussed in this presentation.

Focused on the practical application of Bioremediation.
Nov 2, 2016

Presented by Mr Sayon Neogi, Research Assistant, IJIRA  on 2nd  November, 2016

The presentation focused on the practical application of Bioremediation that is the process of use of either naturally occurring or deliberately introduced microorganisms to consume and break down environmental pollutants into less or almost non-toxic metabolites, in order to clean a polluted site. Nowadays, textile industrial effluents contributes to huge amount of water pollution because of the use of carcinogenic aromatic and azo dyes and heavy metals. Bioremediation can be applied to these textile industrial effluents successfully by implementation of the four following phenomenon- Biodegradation, Biosorption, Phytoremediation and Microbial Enzymatic Treatment. Besides microorganisms, jute stick powder can also be used as a source of adsorption of textile effluents.

Third Generation Regenerated Cellulose from Imidazolium based Ionic Liquids
Oct 19, 2016

Presented by Dr Sanip Bose, Scientist, IJIRA on 19th Oct. 2016

The presentation was delivered on application of ionic liquids for making regenerated cellulose fibre. It was discussed that ionic liquids are a novel material which retains the degree of polymerization of native cellulose chain and hence the regenerated fibres obtained are having improved mechanical properties.

Resin transfer Moulding (RTM) Technology & its application in Jute Composite
Oct 5, 2016

Presented by Smt. Mamata Sarkar, Scientinst, IJIRA  on 5th October, 2016

The paper was focused on compatibility of using jute fabric in Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM), its properties and application and scope of using modern upgraded RTM machine for manufacturing of jute based composite with property realization.

Standard Procedure of Inspection of B. Twill Jute Bags
Sep 22, 2016

Presented by Mr. Palash Paul, Scientinst, IJIRA  on 22nd September, 2016

The presentation covered in detail the various stages of inspection of B. Twill jute bags; sampling criteria, selection of bags, assessment of fabric & bag fault, measurement of physical properties, determination of breaking strength, etc. The present facilities of IJIRA as well as IJIRA’s experience in jute bag inspection were also discussed in details.

Life Cycle Analysis & Carbon Footprint of Jute and similar products
Sep 2, 2016

Presented by Mr. Ritwik Chakraborty, Scientinst, IJIRA  on 2nd September, 2016

The following topics are discused elaborately:

  • Carbon Footprint & GHG Emission
  • Why is LCA required for Jute products?
  • LCA and it’s key components 
  • Issues highlighted by stakeholders in Life Cycle of Jute
  • Discreet Studies on LCA

The complete life cycle of jute can be assessed through three distinct phases: agricultural phase, manufacturing phase and disposal phase.

Breeding of Jute (Corchorus Olitorius) for better fibre yield
Jul 29, 2016

Presented by Dr. Arundhati Choudhury (Sen), Senoir Research Associate, IJIRA  on 29th July, 2016

The presentation was delivered on breeding of two varieties of jute plant to get a hybrid variety of jute plant with higher fibre yield.




Lubrication and its necessity in Jute Industry.
Jul 13, 2016

Presented by Suvankar Bej  on 13th July, 2016

Lubrication is imperative for any kind of machines for their smooth functioning, reduction of wear and tear of moving parts and thereby increasing life of the machines. In order to achieve the desired machine performance it is very essential to use correct type of lubricant with recommended or specified amount. The lecture contained details of types of lubricants, machine-wise requirement of lubricant type and their application schedule and also recommendations for appropriate methodology of application of lubricants.

Presented by Dr. Soumya Mukherjee  on 30th June, 2016

Finding renewable alternatives to fossil fuel has become a necessity not only due to the continuous depletion of limited fossil fuel stock but also for the safe and better environment Lignocellulosic biofuel represents promising alternative as they form the major component of any biomass.Jute is a renewable source of biomass. Jute (C. Camsularis) is a lignocellulosic composite natural fibre comprising of Alphacellulose [60.0-63.0], Hemicellulose [21.0-24.0], Lignin [12.0-13.0], Fats & Waxes [0.4-1.0], Pectin [0.2-1.5], Proteins   or   Nitrogenous   matter, etc. [0.80-1.9] and Ash [0.7-1.2]. Attempts are being made to utilize this rich hemicellulosic content present in jute sticks as a source for biofuel production using cost effective  downstream methods.Ethanol from jute sticks will help in boosting the ethanol production to meet the target for 10% ethanol blending in petrol policy by the end of this year.

Prospect of Natural Fibre Based Textile Industry of India - An Overview
Jun 22, 2016

Presented by Shri Anup Nandi  on 22nd June, 2016

The presentation focused on global as well as Indian market size and growth rate of natural fibre based textile materials. The scopes of jute based textile materials in new arenas are also discussed.
