VDMA shows energy efficient textile process at ITMA

German technology can play a major role in Chinese efforts to make the environment cleaner and to increase the energy efficiency of the textile industry. On occasion of a guided tour initiated by the German VDMA Textile Machinery Association at ITMA ASIA + CITME in Shanghai, high representatives from Chinese authorities and associations and the German General Consul in Shanghai, Dr. Wolfgang Röhr could convince themselves of the energy saving equivalents enabled by German textile machinery. The savings potentials are enormous: The output of two coal power stations every year, the daily output of the Three Gorges Dam power station, the electricity to power 200 million notebooks one day. 
 
In his address to the Chinese trade press, Dr. Röhr said, “Facing the global challenges climate change is imposing, it is of utmost importance to find a way to decouple economic growth and energy demand. The use of energy efficient technology is one of the most promising measures to approach this goal.” Thomas Waldmann, Managing Director of the VDMA Textile Machinery Association added: “Adjusting to volatile energy prices as well as stricter environmental standards provide a challenge for many textile producers. The German exhibitors here in Shanghai provide profound technological answers on how to cut costs by increasing efficiency.” 
 
Energy-efficient Processes From Fibre to the Final Textile Product
VDMA experts examined the energy saving effects over the entire production chain of three textile products: A cotton T-Shirt, a functional T-Shirt and a textile billboard. Major results of this in-depth analysis of German Technology are summarized in a brochure titled “German Technology: Higher Energy Efficiency - Higher Profits”, that can be obtained at the VDMA booth and the booths of numerous VDMA member companies at ITMA ASIA or be downloaded from the websites. On theses websites trade professionals can also read the complete three examples that provide detailed information on which technological measures the increase in energy efficiency is realised. The analysis is comparing German technology of model year 2013 with German technology available one decade ago. This energy efficiency campaign of VDMA and its members is embedded in the sustainability initiative Blue Competence.
