P And G Makes Donations To NCSU

P and G Makes Donations To NCSUThe ProcterandGamble Co. (P and G), Cincinnati, recently donated two intellectual property portfolios to North Carolina State University (NCSU), Raleigh, N.C. The donations include TEEGAFIX, a technology that enables reactive dyeing of fabrics containing cellulosic fibers at reduced temperatures using reduced salt levels; and Enzyme Modified Fiber Technology, which uses cellulase enzymes to improve the softness of tissue, towel and facial paper products, as well as nonwoven textiles.TEEGAFIX technology is a very attractive alternative to constructing expensive wastewater treatment facilities where operating costs, monitoring requirements and liabilities increase every year, said C. Brent Smith, Ph.D., Cone Mills professor of textile chemistry, NCSU. With its increased process efficiency, TEEGAFIX has the potential to reduce color in the wastewater and achieve cost savings for the consumer. It may also reduce the waste of costly raw materials, handling costs, lab testing, record-keeping and paperwork. December 2003
