University of Alberta colalborates with General Recycled

The national research agency, Mitacs, is providing a grant for Dr. Nazmul Islam and Mr. Mahyar Parvinzadeh Gashti, along with researchers from the University of Alberta, to collaborate with General Recycled to optimize the process for the production of fire protective clothing (FR) using recycled aramid fibres.

Dr. Islam and Mr. Gashti will work on the project under the supervision of Dr. Patricia Dolez and Dr. Jane Batcheller of the Human Ecology Department, University of Alberta. The duration of this grant has been set at 3 years for Dr. Islam and one year for Mayhar P. Gashti.

Dr. Islam earned his PhD in Bioengineering (Clothing and Textiles) from the University of Otago in New Zealand, and is a Certified Textile Engineer, while Mr. Gashti earned his Masters in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Québec at Rimouski. 

This is "another exciting step in our aramid recycling process and development," said Ted Parker, CEO of General Recycled.
