As stated by Enrique Silla, President of Jeanologia, on the occasion of the celebration of World Water Day: “On this World Water Day we call on the use of sustainable processes in the textile industry".
He has released the water saving figures that would be achieved if technologies developed by Jeanologia were used in garment finishing processes.
Silla said that: “In a conventional process, each jean uses 70 liters of water whereas Jeanologia technologies use 20 liters of water."
He has also stated that: "Approximately, in the jeans world 1,000 million of jeans per year are produced with the technology developed by Jeanologia, representing an annual saving of 50 million m3 of water." He added that: "If all the jeans produced per year will be made with Jeanologia technologies, the planet would save 780,849 m3 daily, which is approximately daily water consumption of the inhabitants of Berlin."
The company, which has developed all its technology under the premise of ecology, efficiency and ethics, is highly sensitized to the environment. Especially aware with the problem of water shortage in the world, has recently launched E-Soft technology that enables garments smoothing by a process which uses a minimum amount of water, resulting for the first in history producing with zero waste.
Specifically, the E-Soft technology converts atmospheric air in nano-bubbles which, when in contact with the garments produce smoothing, allowing saving 98% water, 80% chemical and 79% of energy.
In addition to this new technology, Jeanologia has developed other sustainable technologies for garment finishing, such as the laser and the eco-textile washing G2, saving over 50% on water and energy and about 60% in chemicals and time, while reducing the costs and increasing productivity.
In particular, the textile laser developed by Jeanologia is able to reproduce more sophisticated effects of wear and "vintage" decreasing production time and increasing accuracy and reproducibility towards a more authentic look.
In addition, eco-G2 washer designed for washing clothes and color tear for achieving an authentic vintage look, uses oxygen and ozone of the atmosphere obtaining considerable savings of water, energy and chemicals compared to traditional processes.
Currently the company has customers across 5 continents and exports of machinery and services accounts for 90% of turnover. Jeanologia products and solutions are currently being used in more than 45 countries including: USA, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Brazil, India, China, Russia, Mexico, Japan, Morocco, Bangladesh and Colombia.
Major brands such as Levi's, Polo Jeans, Abercrombie & Fitch, Edwin Japan, Pepe Jeans, Diesel, Hilfiger Denim, Salsa jeans, or large retailer like GAP, Uniqlo, Zara, among others, have placed their trust in the Spanish company using the techniques and technologies developed by Jeanologia.
