In January of 2013 CINET has launched the project “World of PTC” which is the start of a collection of books concerning Professional Textile Care (PTC) around the world. This project is organized with input of the CINET Liaison Officers and active support of PTC organizations worldwide. The project is being coordinated by the secretariat in The Netherlands. The first objective is to produce two books by the end of this year that can serve the global PTC industry.
The first volume, ‘Safe and Sustainable Processing in PTC’ will be on working methods in textile cleaning and textile service. The book will provide an extensive description of the International Standard Best Practices in Safe & Sustainable PTC processing. Is will also include an overview of recent innovations in the industry and inform about current best practices in countries and regions around the world. Also, the processing issues for dry-cleaning as well as industrial laundering and other specific cleaning processes will be discussed. The book will be published in October 2013.
The second volume, ‘Market Characteristics and Trends in PTC’ will contain an overview of PTC markets worldwide. On the one hand these books contain a collection of facts and figures on markets of professional textile care. On the other hand markets will be presented through the eyes of regional experts in the form of written contributions and editorials. This book will be published in November 2013.
As a result these books will be: “by professionals for professionals and stakeholders to the PTC industry”. The books will be part of an even more extended database, which is expected to be launched by the end of this year. The full color 300+ pages books in the English language can be ordered at the CINET secretariat at euro 250,- for Volume 1 and euro 750,- for Volume 2 (excl. VAT). In case of bulk orders special offers can be made. CINET aims to provide a better understanding about different markets, to profile the PTC industry and provide information for new innovations and cooperation in research.
