DyStar achieves 2020 energy reduction goals in 2014
Sep '15
In its latest sustainability report for 2014, Dystar said it has been able to reduce energy consumption by 21.5 per cent as against its goal to cut the same by 20 per cent by 2020.

In 2010, DyStar published their first sustainability report and established concrete goals to reduce their energy, water consumption, waste water and GHG emission by 20 per cent by 2020.

“From commitment to the environment and various improvements in global plants and offices, energy use has been reduced by 21.5 per cent and GHG emission intensity by 14.8 per cent in 2014,” a press release stated.

Due to the change of the product mix to more water intensive products, water consumption has however; slightly grown compared to last year, but water recycling has improved by 9 per cent as against the previous year.

“Also, waste recycling programs have been implemented and improved in various production sites like the facility in Nanjing, China which recycled 83,480 kg of waste,” DyStar added.

DyStar informed that it does not only take measures to reduce their own impact, their two fold sustainability strategy also supports customers to reduce the impact of their production.

One of the highlights in 2014 is the launch of Realan Black MF-PV for black wool which is completely free of AOX and heavy materials.

The most recent developments are the new Levafix ECO cellulose dyes which are free of p-CA and other regulated amines and meet the requirements of all relevant restricted substance lists.

“With various partnerships DyStar helps improve the dyeing process and reduce the environmental footprint of their customers,” the company observed.

Through their partnership with DyeCoo, DyStar supports the development of technology to use recycled CO2 gas instead of water to permeate textiles with dyes.

DyStar also supported the development of Bluexpert, the system by Bluesign Technologies to improve the resource efficiency in the dyeing process.

DyStar further added that it strives to be the environmental and innovation global leader in the industry and will continue to research and develop new solutions to improve impact of textile industry on environment.

DyStar Group is a solution provider, offering customers across the globe a complete range of colourants, auxiliaries and services.

The DyStar Group has offices, competence centers, agencies and production plants in over 50 countries to ensure the availability of expertise in all important markets.

With a heritage of more than a century of product development and innovation for the textile and leather industry, DyStar now also serves the paper, plastic and many other specialty chemical industries. (AR)
