New dyeing technology to reduce fabric making cost
Nov '11
A new technology has been developed in Bangladesh that is expected to reduce the cost of fabric production by at least 25 percent.

According to textile experts, the revolutionary technology used in dyeing would make 'Made in Bangladesh' fabric more competitive compared to cloth made in other countries.

The new technology has been invented by Dr. Wolfram Engel, a German-born textile engineer, and his four colleagues form Bangladesh.

Dr. Engel has been working in Bangladesh for more than 16 years and according to him, the new technology, which is currently under process of optimization using salt-free dyes, will save water, energy and time significantly.

Presently, the domestic fabric manufacturers use around 80 litres of water to dye a kg of fabrics. The new technique, which is being implemented in phases, will decrease the water usage to less than 15 litres to dye a kg of fabrics by 2015.

This will, in turn, also reduce the time taken to wash a kg of fabrics from the current 8-10 hours to 2-3 hours.

Currently, manufacturers in Bangladesh use enzyme wash, which costs around 0.50 dollars for a kg of fabrics. In addition, it also affects the health of the workers.
