BASF is a partner of the European Union’s SPHERE project. The project aims at developing a digital-twin software platform to enable the virtual replication of buildings in order to increase their energy efficiency, optimize their life cycle, and reduce costs. The ‘virtual twin’ will incorporate a wide range of data on construction method, design, production of construction materials, structural elements, as well as the construction process. The project has been allocated €7.4 million of EU funding; its total volume is €12.8 million.
Titanium dioxide pigmentation is required in many applications of polyamide yarns. The customary rutile and anatase white pigments used for this roughen the surfaces of the manufactured threads and fibers. As a result of this, abrasive wear increases, particularly in the manufacture of velour carpets or flock fibers. The consequences for the spinning machine and also for further processing are higher stress on the yarn-guiding elements and a faster wear of the cutting tools, which leads to high wear costs.
