ITMA ASIA 2014 focuses on energy efficiency
Jun '14
As energy consumption is the main challenge faced by the textile industry in Asia, several companies, from 1,351 textile machinery manufacturers of 27 countries, participating at ITMA Asia + CITME 2014 are introducing technologies with less energy consumption.

Mr. Thomas Waldmann, Managing Director of VDMA Textile Machinery Association, told Fibre2Fashion correspondent Ilin Mathew, “Energy efficiency will be an important focus of the German companies exhibiting at ITMA Asia + CITME 2014 mainly because government regulations in major Asian countries are setting ambitious goals in terms of efficiency and environment.”

“Furthermore textile producers are confronted with volatile prices for commodities and energy,” he adds.

In a similar Vein, Thomas Elsener, marketing service of Switzerland-based Scharer Schweiter Mettler AG, says, “This year visitors of ITMA Asia will be more focused on energy consumption and high quality products including good services.”

Talking about the highlights of Germany-based Thies GMBH for ITMA Asia, Christiane Thies, Marketing Department, Thies GmbH & Co. KG, says, “We will be introducing newest yarn dyeing machine which consolidates highest ecological standards with technological intelligence to achieve tremendous savings in water and electricity consumption.”

Carlo Rogora, CEO of Italy-based ITEMA s.p.a, says, “We will exhibit machines with challenging applications to illustrate unprecedented performance in speed, diversification and energy consumption.”

The fourth edition of the ITMA Asia + CITME combined show will be held at Shanghai New International Expo Centre from June 16 - 20, 2014.
