Textile Institute of Pakistan is a private sector institute located at KarachiIn order to run TIP independently, APTMA created a trust under the name of National Textile Foundation . This foundation is the caretaker of TIP and looks after its financial and capital needs. The institute was purpose built along with a state-of-the-art architectural design by a leading architect on 50 acres of land located on the National Highway, about 40 km from the Karachi city center. The architectural features of interior and exterior design are in consonance with the climatic and topographical need to soften the harshness of Karachi’s physical and social environment. While not being ostentatious, the premises are air-conditioned and fitted with pleasant fixtures, wood work and finishing. The exterior is adorned with beautifully sprawling lawns and an artificial lake complete with related fauna in its natural habitat.Realizing the importance of this segment to Pakistan’s export potential, the Export Promotion Bureau has played a significant role in the development of TIP in the shape of generous financial assistance through the EDF . The campus houses all requisite facilities as per internationally acceptable standards, such as, an extensive library with individual and group study facilities together with an audio-visual room. The entire campus is WiFi enabled based on dedicated 8 Mbps Fiber Optic internet connectivity. The computer lab also has a separate CAD lab equipped with specialized software related to the field of textile design, weaving and apparel. The science and textile laboratories, including spinning, weaving, knitting, wet processing, apparel and testing labs, have all been equipped with the specialized machinery for imparting hands-on training to the students. Computers have also been installed in the hostels to enable hostelites to avail this facility for homework and other assignments. The entire faculty, management, staff and students are transported to and from the campus on TIP’s air-conditioned vehicles covering all major parts of Karachi city.Since its establishment, TIP has served the needs of industry to a large extent and is gearing up its resources to meet its further requirements. So far, all TIP graduates have been taken up by the domestic textile industry with the exception of those who have gone abroad in pursuit of higher education. With an independent charter granted by the Government of Sindh, TIP is authorized to award its own degrees under the recognition of the Higher Education Commission . TIP’s course content and syllabi were developed by faculty at the Clemson University, USA. TIP also has had various higher education links supported by the British Council and with the University of Manchester. This has helped TIP to adopt and upgrade its educational standards according to the changing global industry and market.At TIP, a student is exposed to an environment where he/she is given the opportunity to actively participate in activities such as public speaking, stage appearances, social and cultural activities, art, music, etc. to help foster well-rounded personalities besides serving as a form of recreation.In this modern era of rapidly evolving technology, it is imperative for any nation to stay in touch with the latest technological trends. Bearing this in mind, TIP has established Textile Research and Innovation Centre under its wings. This would help Pakistan’s textile sector innovate new products and become competitive in the global race. The Vision of TRIC is to foster genuine leading-edge research linking the industry and other institutions within Pakistan and abroad and provide a new dimension to textile education in Pakistan. The initial focus of TRIC is to promote Advanced Materials Research such as technical textiles and nano-technology and to incorporate such research within the existing technology available in the Pakistan’s textile sector.It must be stated in the end, that Pakistan’s effort in the industrial sector in the past 60 years had been, at best, haphazard and sporadic. Individual mills may or may not have adopted universal standards and operating practices. Today, with the setting up of a formally structured learning centre at TIP, APTMA has demonstrated its ability to piece together an effort in a concerted way preparing us for the impending global challenges that are anticipated by all of Asia as well as the textile world.Textile Institute of Pakistan is a not-for-profit degree-awarding institution in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. The college was established by the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association in 1994 as a means to create professionals to support Pakistan's textile industry. Textile Institute of Pakistan is one of the finest Art/design Institutes in the country as per latest HEC rankingsIt offers a four-year, eight-semester bachelor's degree program in the following five disciplines: BSc in Textile Science BSc in Textile Design Technology BBA in Textile Management and Marketing BBA in Apparel Manufacturing and Merchandising BBA in Fashion Design Management BBA - Marketing, Management, Finance or Supply ChainAs of January 2014, TIP is headed by Mr. Zarrar Zubair.In the past, TIP has been led by Dr. Zubair Bandukda and before him, Mr. Tariq Ikram, former CE Trade & Development Authority of Pakistan , former Chairman Export Promotion Bureau and former Minister of State, and writer and intellectual Mr. Irfan Husain. TIP's founding chancellor was Dr. Eqbal Ahmad. Since Dr. Ahmad's demise, architect and thinker Mr. Arif Hasan has served this position. The present Chancellor of Textile Institute of Pakistan is Mr. Abdul Majeed who is a member of National Textile Foundation . Wikipedia.

Estimate of the additional power generated by the projects being implemented at present and added to the national grid by 2015 is as follows: Thar coal Projects including Badin, Thatta and Lakhra projects = 2700 MW. Eight Rental Power Projects (RPPS) = 1156 MW. Nuclear Power Projects = 620 MW. Micro Hydro Power Projects (MHPP) = 15 MW. AEDB Wind Power Projects = 286 MW. Solar Power Plant at Dhabji = 50 MW. New Plants of IPPS = 665 MW. Power Supply from Iran = 100. Total = 5592 MW. It may be stated that the power supply and demand situation will further deteriorate in the coming years. The present power generation capacity of Pakistan is 10,000 MW as stated by Federal Minister of Water and Power. After addition of about 6,000 MW it is expected to be 16,000 MW. Pakistan will need 36,000 MW by 2015. The demand supply gap will increase from the existing 6000 MW to 20,000 MW. The GoP should start emergency plans for power generation in order to avoid the forthcoming alarming situation.

Bleaching tests were conducted to study the efficacy of peracetic acid as a replacement for hydrogen peroxide in bleaching processes of 100% cotton fabric. The criteria chosen for assessing bleaching performances of peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide were whiteness index, tensile strength, absorbency and fluidity values. The CIE whiteness index value of fabrics was measured by a spectrophotometer using appropriate computer software. A Universal Strength Tester (Titan) was used to measure tensile strength. An Ostwald - Fenske Cuen viscosimeter was used to determine chemical degradation of cotton fabric by measurement of its fluidity and embroidery hoop was used to determine absorbency. The results of this research showed that the peracetic acid is more effective as a bleaching agent than hydrogen peroxide. An acceptable degree of whiteness (CIE whiteness index 80) can be obtained with minimum loss of tensile strength. This study has also provided valuable information for industrial application of the developed bleaching systems. Cotton, Bleaching, Peracetic acid, Hydrogen peroxide.

The effect of reinforcing natural rubber (NR) with industrial and agricultural waste, Marble Waste (MW)/Rice Husk derived Silica (RHS), hybrid filler on the cure characteristics, mechanical and swelling properties of the hybrid composite was investigated. Hybrid fillers were treated with silane (Si-69) as a coupling agent to enhance their dispersion property in NR matrix. This study has shown the intrinsic potential of MW/RHS as reinforcing filler revealed by the considerable improvement in mechanical properties of the NR hybrid composites. The results indicated that scorch time, cure time and elongation at break decreased but torque, tensile strength, modulus, tear strength and hardness increased. The homogenous dispersion of MW/RHS obtained with silane (Si-69) coupling agent is accountable for the substantial enhancement in the tensile strength, tear strength, modulus and hardness of NR hybrid composite. This study suggests that the use of industrial and agricultural waste in NR hybrid composite is a cost effective and smart substitute of industrial interest. Additional inducement was the social responsibility of tackling with environmental issues of both industrial and agricultural waste.

South Asia is being viewed by the world as a promising market for geotextiles in near future. Whilst markets in India and China are frequently discussed, it is rather surprising that the neighboring Pakistan has by far, done virtually nothing to come up in this potentially lucrative market. This paper discusses the indispensible need of Pakistan's textile industry to expand their product portfolio to include hi-tech products like geotextiles. Also included is a SWOT analysis of the situation and the reasons why the author thinks Pakistan can, with the right strategy, make its niche in the emergent geotextile market of South Asia.
