Geotextiles become an important growth pole in textile industry
Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, 18 Nov (Reporter Zhang Xinxin) Li Lingshen, president of China's Industrial Textiles Industry, said on the 18th that since 2013, China's geotextile production has increased by an average of 9.28% a year. In the future, it will maintain a growth rate of about 7.5% and become an important growth pole for the textile industry.
Li Lingshen made the above remarks at the second Asia-Europe Geosynthetics Conference sponsored by the China Industrial Textiles Industry Association in Beijing on the 18th.
Industrial textile is an important economic growth pole and transformation driving force of textile industry because of its high scientific and technological content, wide range of application, strong driving effect and great market potential. Geotextile is one of the earliest and most mature fields of industrial textiles. With the innovation of materials, technology and technology, the performance of geotextiles is continuously enhanced, the function is constantly enriched, and the application field is constantly expanded.
For example, geotextiles made of fiber materials can enhance the durability and service life of roads; some geotextiles and geomembrane can isolate Rain Water and become "guards" for sponge city construction, and so on. Geotextile is becoming the representative of new materials and new science and technology.
Li Lingshen said: in 2018, the total fiber processing of industrial textiles accounted for 28% of the total textile industry, and geotechnical textiles accounted for 6.76% of industrial textiles. With the breakthrough and application of technology and the continuous construction of infrastructure at home and abroad, geotextiles in China will usher in more room for development.
Sun Ruizhe, co-president of China's textile industry, said at the meeting that the China Textile Federation will promote the research and development of key materials, core technologies, high-end equipment and key products, and strengthen the construction and docking of the standard system. We will strengthen the application and innovation of geotextiles in the field of infrastructure construction, and at the same time explore the extension of geotextiles to product design, engineering construction, operation monitoring, maintenance, and so on, so as to form systematic solutions. Promote the high quality development of the industry.
