The new book Cotton Science and Processing Technology edited by Professor Wang Hua of DHU and Dr. Hafeezullah Memon was published recently. The book summarizes cotton science and the related engineering fields for cotton fiber processing, involving knowledge from genetics, fiber chemistry, soft materials, to textile and fashion engineering, also including the latest applications of biomaterials, nano-coated smart fabrics, functional textiles etc. Moreover, the book introduces major improvements in cotton genetic modification and genetic technology.
The development of the cotton textile industry is closely related to the poverty alleviation for developing countries, and it is also the only gate to development and revitalization for the cotton-producing countries along the "Belt and Road”.This book is edited by Professor Wang Hua of DHU and postdoctoral researcher Hafeezullah Memon of Zhejiang Sci-Tech University, with each chapter written by cotton fiber industry experts from 9 countries, which systematically introduces the development and latest achievements of the cotton textile industry. This is a book for undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in cotton science and cotton processing technology, researchers who study the latest applications of cotton in various fields, and practitioners who want to quickly learn cotton fiber and its different processing stages.
At the beginning of 2021,the Seminar of the Economic and Trade Cooperation Opportunities and Challenges for the "Belt and Road" International Cotton Textile Industry in the Post-epidemic Era, hosted by the College of Humanities of DHU and the "Belt and Road" Research Center was held in Shanghai Yongao Textile Technology Co., Ltd., including the release ceremony of the new book Cotton Science and Processing Technology. Liu Chenggong, Party Secretary of DHU, and Zhu Beina, Chairperson of China Cotton Textile Industry Association, attended the Seminar and delivered speeches offline/online respectively. Hu Zhengyuan, Director of the China Committee for Strategic Promotion of Constructing An Innovation-Oriented Country, Zhang Xiling, Deputy Director of the Institute of Cotton Research of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Wang Hua, Chief Researcher of the B&R International Cooperation Research Center for Textile Industry of DHU, and other internal and external experts delivered keynote speeches at the Seminar.
