Tanatex & SPOT to demonstrate BE GREEN concept at ITM

ITM Texpo Eurasia 2012 Exhibition brings together the world's leading textile technology manufacturers in Istanbul and is organized on 21-24 April 2012 at Tuyap Beylikduzu Fair and Congress Center. TANATEX Chemicals and the exclusive Turkish distributor SPOT Tekstil A.S. will introduce sustainable solutions for the textile industry during this international exhibiton.

As the world's most valuable resources are becoming scarce, bleaching cellulosics to obtain a high quality standard, via an environmentally friendly method, saving energy and decreasing water consumption, became the latest challenge in textile processing.

BE GREEN is an environment friendly pretreatment concept to face this challenge, developed by TANATEX Chemicals. The wet application of textile requires huge amounts of water, energy and harsh chemicals. As most of the processes are running at high temperatures, high consumption of gas is needed for generating steam and water heating. This results in a high CO2 emission. TANATEX has developed the BE GREEN Concept which ensures bleaching at only 75°C (normal 95°C - 98°C). Reducing the temperature immediately reduces the consumption of methane gas and therefore the emission of CO2.

The BE GREEN concept is consists of two products; TANASPERSE BE, TANEDE GREEN. It is suitable for all cellulosics and cellulosic blends in exhaust method. This process decreases water consumption, saves time and energy, reduces COD und BOD in waste water up to 25% and improves yarn and fabric quality due to mild treatment (handle, DP- value, weight loss).

The products themselves are GOTS certified, comply with Öko-Tex Standard 100 and all RSL (restricted substance list) demands. Additionally textile factories which implement the BE GREEN method can use the label 'approved company status'.

Cradle to Cradle is the certification managed by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute (C2CPII) - previously managed by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC). It is a new approach to sustainable designing, brought forward in the book “Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things (2002)” by William McDonough and Michael Braungart. MBDC's Cradle to Cradle (often written as C2C) protocol envisions every resource used to make products as a safe nutrient in an endless cycle.

Cradle to Cradle Design takes its inspiration from nature, in which there is no place for the concept of waste, but in which waste = food. 'Cradle to Cradle' is the antidote to the 'Cradle to Grave' paradigm, where product cycles are not really cycles but mostly half cycles in which products, after their useful life, are put out of sight in landfills.

The purpose of the Cradle to Cradle Design is to restore continuous cycles of biological as well as technical nutrients with long terms positive effects on profitability, the environment and human health.

Cradle-to-Cradle is a relatively new concept in textilesand TANATEX is so far the only textile chemicals supplier with a full-fledged C2C system certification.
