Dec '11
MADE-BY, a European not-for-profit organisation with a mission to make sustainable fashion common practice and improve environmental and social conditions in the fashion industry, will be holding a symposium on 'Sustainable Wet Processing' on January 24, 2012 at Amsterdam.

The event will create a forum for brands to connect with experts in the field, hear inspiring case studies and learn about sustainable alternatives.

It will also provide a broad range of professionals with the opportunity to connect with experts in the field and become empowered to implement improvements in their wet processing supply chains.

Several industry specialists are expected to speak at the Symposium. The representative of Clariant will be speaking on the topic of “Denim Dyeing: Sustainable Solutions”, while that of Novozymes would be speaking on “Denim Finishing: Sustainable Solutions” and that of DyeCoo on “CO2 Dyeing: A Waterless Innovation”.

“Synthetic Dyeing and Finishing” would be addressed by representative of DyStar, while representative of Tanatex would speak on “Cotton Dyeing and Finishing: A Cradle-to-Cradle Approach”.

The morning seminars will focus on the issues and impact of wet processing in general and will also discuss the need to take a strategic approach to implementing improvements. The afternoon sessions will cover topics related to sustainable solutions for cotton, synthetics and denim dyeing and finishing.

In addition, international pressure group Greenpeace International would also be participating in the event. It will discuss on the current topic “Detox Roadmap: Towards Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals”.

In August this year, Greenpeace had released a report stating high levels of nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPE) were found in clothing and fabric-based shoes sold internationally by major clothing brands. It has launched a drive against the use of NPE in clothing items and has urged all leading apparel brands to stop using NPE in manufacturing of textiles and apparels.
