Huntsman to discuss environmental challenges at Shanghai

Huntsman Textile Effects, a leading global provider of high quality dyes and chemicals to the textile industry will be presenting a high-level overview covering the current environmental issues facing the textile dyeing sector in Asia. The presentation will take place in the annual Planet Textiles conference on 22 October at Kerry Hotel, Shanghai New International Expo Center in China.

Presented by Steve Gray, Global Vice President, Strategic Marketing and Planning, the session will highlight the key challenges facing the industry, particularly on how it is currently tackling pollution while up keeping transparency throughout the manufacturing process. The session will also focus on the significant role chemical companies such as Huntsman TE can play and how its collaborative approaches with various stakeholders has yielded much success and help pioneered change for a sustainable textile industry.

The textile dyeing and finishing industry is one of heaviest global consumers of water and energy. In the wake of intense pressure from NGOs and regulatory bodies on the toxic chemical pollution caused by textile manufacturers, the industry has been under tremendous pressure to improve its environmental performance while straddling economic sustainability.

A committed leader in driving sustainability initiatives through its innovative product range, Huntsman TE has been actively collaborating with industry partners and engaging brands and retailers to help the textile supply chain go green by tackling the industry’s biggest sustainability challenges - carbon emissions, and the consumption and pollution of water.

This has resulted in the development of a list of dyes and chemicals which do not intentionally contain any of the priority chemical groups under the Joint Roadmap: Towards Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC). With this list, the textile supply chain is now able to supply textiles to companies that have signed up to the ‘roadmap’, thereby helping to improve environmental performance and economic sustainability.

Huntsman TE has recently also developed and launched a series of innovative products to help businesses turn sustainability challenges into business advantage. This includes PHOBOTEX, an advanced range of fluorine-free hydro polymers providing rain and stain management through the short-chained C6 technology as well as the supercritical CO2 textile processing technology with Dyecoo which completely eliminates the use of water in the textile dyeing process.
