HK scientists develop self-cleaning fabrics
Scientists are in the process of developing self-cleaning nanofabrics through a government-sponsored initiative, which is expected to add value to manufacturers' products and improve their sales.
Scientists at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University have been working on the development of functional fabrics through the Intelligent Production Control Decision-Making System for Apparel Manufacturing Process, a project financed by the Innovation and Technology Fund established by the Hong Kong government in 2003.
