Bluesign picks Archroma's One Way for its Bluexpert tool

Bluesign Technologies has chosen Archroma's One Way calculation tool as the engine behind its Bluexpert resource tool that is due to launch in 2016.

“Bluexpert was introduced at the fourth Bluesign conference, held in Saint-Gallen, Switzerland, on July 14-15, 2015,” Archroma, a producer of speciality chemicals said in a press release.

“The new tool represents a milestone in resource-efficient textile production, as it enables manufacturers to immediately save 50 per cent water, 30 per cent energy and 15 per cent chemicals,” it added.

Archroma contributed its resource calculation tool to the industry initiative, which also was launched at the Bluesign conference.

“Via this initiative, Archroma is joining with other textile chemical leaders to help textile brands, retailers and manufacturers to make the best choices for more sustainable processing of textiles,” it observed.

Introduced in 2012 after more than two years of development, One Way was designed to demonstrate that it is possible to bring together the dual objectives of ecology and economy.

“The tool provides a fast, measurable and reliable approach to selecting chemical product and resource-saving process solutions,” the Switzerland based company stated.

One Way received industry recognition with the 2013 ICIS Best Business Innovation Award and in 2014; Archroma added its portfolio of ZDHC MRSL-compliant chemicals and dyes to the One Way tool.

Bluexpert combines for the first time, the input stream management of the Bluesign Bluefinder and resource optimisation through the best available technology process selection.

Bluexpert operates within the high-security IT environment of Bluesign Technologies, as it is hosted in the firm's state-of-the-art data centre in Switzerland.

Bluexpert also includes proprietary algorithms specific to Bluesign criteria, such as the air emission factor and is exclusively available to Bluesign partners only.

"Archroma was the first to introduce a tool that would help their textile customers make the best choices in favour of resource optimisation,” said Peter Waeber, CEO of Bluesign Technologies.

“And whilst One Way obviously focuses on Archroma's products and processes, we considered the approach with strong interest," he added.

Paul Cowell, head of brand marketing for Textile Specialties at Archroma too said, "We are very proud that our groundwork with One Way helped Bluesign bring in its revolutionary Bluesign Bluexpert tool.” (AR)
