DyStar strives to apply 'Cradle to Cradle' concept

DyStar has been cooperating with EPEA Internationale Umweltforschung GmbH since early 2002, in order to apply aspects of the Cradle to Cradle Design Concept on certain DyStar products.

The aim of the Cradle to Cradle design concept is to improve the quality of products so that they

- have an improved consumer quality for the user
- pose no health risk at any stage of their Life Cycle
- are of both economic and ecological benefit
- can go into technical or biological cycles

DyStar has submitted various product data which have been assessed by EPEA according to EPEA’s specific criteria and which result in a “Positive-List” (project related, not publicly available). They include chemicals, materials and auxiliaries which are at least tolerable for inclusion in a Cradle to Cradle product according to its intended use, depending on available toxicity data.

For management of companies, engaging a Cradle to Cradle Design process has many advantages. It offers transparency within risks, purchasing and process management; it optimizes “environmental and waste costs” and also allows a better understanding of social aspects along the supply chain.

Cradle to Cradle Design optimizes environmental, economic, and social effectiveness in an overall added-value cycle and this is a strong motivation for DyStar to continue this cooperation.
