Training on Absorbent Cotton Technology

Cotton, the king of natural fibres is the major raw material for the textile industry. As much as 94% of the total cotton fibre consumed is used by the spinning sector for making yarns. However, a significant quantity of cotton, about 6% is also utilized for technical applications, such as for the manufacture of “absorbent cotton”. Absorbent cotton is a medical product used to absorb body fluids. It is also popularly known as cotton wool or surgical cotton. Apart from medical applications, absorbent cotton is now also finding various non-medical uses mostly in the beauty and personal care sector with products like wiping pads, ear buds etc.
The demand for absorbent cotton is on the rise with increase in population and boom in the healthcare and cosmetic sectors. There is a good market potential both in the domestic as well as in the export market. India, being the largest producer of cotton in the world with a vibrant textile industry has abundant supplies of the raw material for the preparation of absorbent cotton and can be a prominent producer of this important product in the world. This training programme on Absorbent Cotton Technology has been designed by CIRCOT for the benefit of personnel from industry, entrepreneurs as well as researchers to help them in understanding various processes involved in the production of absorbent cotton, testing methods for checking the product quality as per Pharmacopeia norms and business prospects of this industry.
