Bluesign Technologies AG, developer of the bluesign system adopted by worldwide leading textile and accessory manufacturers for sustainable textiles, has launched the latest generation of the bluesign bluefinder(pat.) platform, a online positive list of safe chemicals. The patented platform has already amassed more than 7500 “bluesign approved” chemicals.

The chemicals that are in the bluesign bluefinder(pat.) originate from the most sustainably acting chemical companies around the world. To get a chemical certified, a chemical company has to undergo a bluesign audit followed by a corrective action plan to fulfil the bluesign criteria for production sites. Only after implementing the necessary steps to fulfil the bluesign criteria for chemical companies is a certification of a chemical product possible.

The key for a chemical assessment is a perfectly installed Product Stewardship Program to get all necessary data in an accurate and correct form. A fully functioning “Product Stewardship Program” is the only way for a robust and systemic approach to get a constant quality (lot by lot – day by day) which is the key to fulfil the sustainability and environmental requirements of all stakeholders in the supply chain.

Peter Waeber, CEO of bluesign technologies said, “2020 is now – you can use the 'bluesign approved' products for your chemical change management to detox the supply chain today. With the comprehensive range in the bluesign bluefinder(pat.), all possible colours and common finishes are possible, including more than 60 alternatives to PFC. Additionally a recommendation for every single chemical product for the various possible end-uses is given – this is an absolutely unique feature of the bluesign bluefinder(pat.). With the new bluesign bluefinder(pat.), we are ready for the next generation of chemical assessment. In 2017, we will launch for our chemical system partners a new release of the bluesign bluetool(pat.) that will consider the latest technology for risk assessments including the requirements of, for example, REACH, GHS etc. The new bluesign bluefinder(pat.) contains these functions already to be prepared for the future.” (GK)
