Hauser receives Olney Medal

April 6th, 2018 / By: / Industry News, News

Peter J. Hauser is the recipient of the AATCC Olney Medal for his substantial work as an industry scientist and textile chemistry professor in industrial textile wet processing research and development. Hauser’s early research involved developing and commercially verifying a mathematical model for continuous indigo yarn dyeing. He also developed cationic bleach activators for cotton bleaching, as well as demonstrating that cationized cotton is a viable, sustainable approach to dyeing cotton with fiber reactive
dyes, eliminating the need for electrolytes. Most recently, Hauser has been pioneering research in the practical use of atmospheric pressure plasma for textile finishing. He and co-workers have been issued 10 U.S. patents.
