Cold Pad batch dyeing process saves 50% water

Nov '11
Leading fabric supplier Wah Fung Group released a report showing that its Cold Pad Batch dyeing technology achieves 13% carbon savings and over 50% water savings in fabric manufacturing compared with the conventional processes using exhaust dyeing.

Wah Fung's analysis uses the new Greenhouse Gas Protocol Product Standard which was presented by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).

The results show the potential of alternative dyeing technology to provide significant contributions to Chinese Government carbon and water efficiency targets. China is currently seeking to reduce carbon emissions per unit of GDP by 17% by 2015, and water use per unit of industrial output by 30%.

Mr. Ray Shiu, Director & Head of Sales, Wah Fung Group said 'Cold Pad Batch technology delivers a significant environmental win, that we can now communicate clearly to our customers and government partners using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Standard.'

CPB technology, although used in Europe, has not been widely adopted in China because the capital cost is higher than conventional technology. Wah Fung believes that improved environmental impact, resource efficiency savings and the higher quality of CPB-dyed fabric present a strong alternative business case for the sector in China.

Already China's largest volume user of CPB technology, Wah Fung is committed to increasing the share of CPB output at the company. 'Beyond CPB we will also seek additional carbon and water reductions for our fabric products by working with our suppliers on low impact yarns', said Shiu.

The event is co-organised by China National Institute for Standardization (CNIS) and the China Business Council for Sustainable Development (CBCSD).
