Ahmedabad Textile Industry’s Research Association (ATIRA) received ‘Special Recognition in Textile Sector’ award in the category – Technical Textiles. The award was given at an event held in Delhi on January 5, 2019. ATIRA director MN Subramanian received the award on behalf of the organisation from Union minister of textiles Smriti Irani.


“ATIRA’s efforts in composites have resulted in innovations such as low cost toilets, jute composite, cotton composites, GFRP, KFRP, CFRP components and CFRP hybrid products. The organisation is also pursuing 32 geo technical textile projects in North East India for strengthening roads, stabilising slopes and lining water reservoirs. Antimicrobial face masks with 99.8 per cent virus filtration efficiency and water filters are some of its nano textile innovations,” the ministry of textiles said in the award presented to ATIRA.


“ATIRA has developed mission critical components such as reflectors, cylinders, blocks, struts for ISRO. They have already been installed in already launched space-crafts including GSAT-29, Chandrayaan-2, and Cartosat-3,” the award added. (RKS)
