IIT-Delhi’s New Tech to Manufacture Nanofibres

The technology has been granted patents in India, the UK and the USA.

Researchers at IIT Delhi have recently announced the development of a technology for industrial-scale production of Nanofibres which is superior to existing commercial technologies in other countries.

NanofibresNanofibres, which are 1/1000 thin in diameter in comparison to cotton fibre, are one such material that has found applications in making high-efficiency industrial filters, automobile oil and fuel filters, scaffolds for tissue engineering, highly responsive electronic sensors, protective devices and many more.

The IIT Delhi researchers, led by Ashwini Agrawal and Manjeet Jassal from the Textile and Fibre Engineering Department, were able to solve all the challenges and develop a scalable prototype.

The pilot machine developed at IIT Delhi has been validated in an industrial set-up for producing nanofibres at a commercial scale.

The technology has been granted patents in India, the UK and the USA.
