TAIWAN: MOEA launches bamboo charcoal textile products

TAITEI: The Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) on Nov 11 launched a series of textile products made of bamboo charcoal which the ministry says can make Taiwan's textile industry more competitive in the world market.

MOEA took two years to develop the technology of bamboo charcoal textiles with the help of the Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI) and several textile companies.

"TTRI has always abided the principle of comfort, health, and environmental protection in developing our products," read a statement released by the institute.

To produce bamboo charcoal, bamboo at the appropriate age of four to five years old are burned at 700-750 degrees Celsius.

The charcoal is then finely graded and inserted into fibers to create a new form of textile.

Clothing made of the bamboo charcoal textiles have the advantage of absorbing foul odors, retaining heat, blocking out electromagnetic radiation, and maintaining low humidity, said Huang Yao-tang, head of the TTRI.

MOEA also introduced a new trademark Phyllotex for its line of bamboo charcoal products that includes, besides clothing, soap, lotion, shampoo, and pillows.
