ACIMIT to present sustainable technologies in China

The Chinese textile industry is increasingly paying attention to issues such as energy savings and low environmental impact for production processes – in response to which the Italian textile machinery sector will be presenting its sustainable technology at Nanjing on May 21.

The technology seminar organized by ICE – the Italian Trade Promotion Agency, and ACIMIT - the Italian Association of Textile Machinery Manufacturers, will host various machinery manufacturers associated with ACIMIT: Bianco, Brazzoli, Hip Mitsu, Lawer, LGL, Noseda, Obem, Reggiani. Chinese textile companies present at the event will thus have a chance to become acquainted with Italian technology and see for themselves the commitment to themes such as energy savings, production efficiency and environmental impact.

China is the primary global market for textile machinery, and the first export market for Italy. In 2012, Italian machinery companies exported 352 million euros worth of machinery to China. In spite of a drop compared to 2011 (-22%), China remains the major foreign market for Italian manufacturers, with a 21% share of total exports.

In an effort to attain the goals set by the 12th five-year plan on energy savings and emissions reductions, the local textile industry must invest in new sustainable technologies over the coming years. Local government authorities are also pushing in this direction, foreseeing a whole range of tax incentives for the acquisition of machinery capable of ensuring sustainable energy and environmental levels set by the five-year plan.

The technology seminar therefore aims to demonstrate to Chinese textile manufacturers the advances in technology achieved by the Italian machinery sector in the design and manufacturing of machinery with a low environmental impact and high energy savings.

The Sustainable Technologies project, launched in 2010 by ACIMIT, will be presented in Nanjing in partnership with the consulting firm D’Appolonia. This project will allow provide a showcase for Italian textile machinery firms who produce machinery with a low environmental impact, combining sustainability and innovation.

The energy and environmental performances of textile machinery are measured and declared in the “Green Label” affixed to each machine, specifying the quantity of equivalent carbon dioxide emissions (Carbon Footprint - CFP) produced during operation. Companies participating in the project bear the marking “Suppliers of Sustainable Technologies”.

In the absence of shared reference standards at an international level, Italian textile machinery manufacturers are making use of this project to promote their advanced sustainable technology systems, which are capable of rationally exploiting resources, minimizing the use of energy and primary materials, while allowing machinery users to combine production efficiency with environmental sustainability.
