THE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH INSTITUTE OF LIGHT INDUSTRY PROBLEMS

is a scientific structural subdivision of JSC «Almaty Technological University», established in 2004. The purpose of the Scientific Research Institute of Light Industry Problems: system planning, effective organization of scientific research, participation in the training of highly qualified personnel.

The Scientific Research Institute of Light Industry Problems performs fundamental and applied research on a wide range in the field of textile and light industry in the following areas:

  • Development of methods for designing special clothing for various purposes to protect against dangerous and harmful production factors based on the study of working conditions of workers;
  • Development of design concepts for light industry products;
  • Development of design methods for various types of yarn and textile materials with special properties: fire-resistant, heat-protective, water-resistant, oil-repellent, antibacterial, etc.;
  • Development of innovative technology for the production of nonwovens;
  • Development of new textile auxiliaries based on water-soluble polymers for finishing textile materials;
  • Resource-saving technologies in knitting and spinning industries.
  • Quality and Safety of non-food products and products.

In 2004-2022, the technical base and methodological foundations for conducting scientific research and testing of materials were created at the Scientific Research Institute of Light Industry Problems. The organizational structure of the Scientific Research Institute of Light Industry Problems includes Scientific Research Laboratory of Technology and Safety of Textile Materials and the Research Laboratory for the Design of Light Industry Products.
