On the occasion of World Environment Day celebrated on June 5th , Valencian company Jeanologia, specialized in garment finishing technology and highly sensitized to respect the environment, makes available to the textile industry - the Eco-Clock.

Specifically, the Eco-Clock allows real-time information on energy consumption, water and chemicals in the finishing process of denim, comparing the results with the same process but using sustainable technologies.

Eco-Clock is a tool designed to educate both industry and consumers about the importance of process improvement into sustainable productive. As stated by Enrique Silla, President of Jeanologia: "The way and the technologies to produce jeans are part of the product, the market understands this and in the future there will be no room for those that do not use efficient, ethical and sustainable, production techniques. "

Along these lines, EIM has also developed Jeanologia (Environmental Impact Measuring), the first software-specific environmental impact measurement for garment finishing industry, created to provide both laundries as the textile industry a tool to build a process more sustainable.

EIM software allows professionals to evaluate the environmental impact in the finishing process through the categories of energy and water consumption, chemical use and health of workers.

In this line, under sound principles of efficiency, ecology and ethics, Jeanologia has developed a sustainable technology, which allows the garments to achieve the best finish while respecting the environment and health and safety of workers.

Specifically, the company, especially aware of the problem of water shortages, is preparing a new launch of E-Soft technology based on the use of nano-bubbles that soften clothes without using water or chemical also allowing considerable savings in energy compared to traditional processes. Thus, this technology saves a 98% water, 80% of chemicals as well as a 79% energy.

Jeanologia has also the GFK Laser technology, a textile laser that allows huge water and chemicals savings, also energy and time significative reduction in the finishing process of denim.

The boost of textile laser has avoided the use of techniques detrimental to the health of workers and reduced energy consumption and pollution in the environment. In addition, this laser reproduces vintage wear and more elaborate effects by decreasing production time and increasing accuracy and reproducibility towards a more authentic look.

In addition, laser technology G2 plus-echo is a washer that works only with ozone and oxygen, enabling washing of denim jeans and T-shirts, achieving a vintage finish, without using water nor or chemicals.

This new technology saves G2 per item plus 62% of Kw / h, 67% of liters of water, 85% of chemicals in the jeans production.

The environmental benefits offered by this new initiative are spectacular. Given that the annual production of jeans in the world is 6 billion units, each made jean uses a total of 70 liters of water, 1 kw / h and 150 grams of chemical per year figure is 420 million m3 water, 6 billion kw / h and 900,000 tons of chemicals.

If the entire textile industry will use this new technology would achieve water savings equivalent to 2 years of drinking water in Paris and two years of electricity consumption in Nepal as well as saving tons of chemicals 720,000.00.

Jeanologia is a Spanish company specialized in research, development and commercialization of new technologies for washing, dyeing and finishing textiles, specialized in jeans.
