  • Publication number: 20220145496
    Abstract: A process produces a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) fiber with low shrinkage, in particular at a high spinning speed. The resulting fiber can be used for fabric, especially for garments and shoes. The process combines the high-speed spinning process with the heat-setting process. This allows the process to produce a TPU fiber in high productivity, which could greatly decrease the cost. Moreover, the obtained TPU fiber has very low shrinkage of <10%, which makes it well suitable as the main raw material in fabrics.

  • Patent number: 11195125
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure allow accuracy of prediction of pollution to be improved. In operation, a prediction of pollution in a future time period is determined. The prediction of pollution indicates predicted data related to a pollution index. Then, matching historical data for the predicted data is determined from historical data related to the pollution index. The matching historical data is obtained in a historical time period corresponding to the future time period. Based on the matching historical data, the prediction of pollution is refined.
