Texprocess to showcase sustainable textile processes
Mar '15
Texprocess which takes place from May 4 to 7, 2015, will present numerous innovations in the field of sustainable processing of textile and flexible materials.

According to the organiser, Messe Frankfurt, modern textile machinery allows the production of fabrics in an energy-saving and resource-conserving manner which then is cut to size, sewed and ironed.

“Within the manufacturing process, numerous possibilities for a green production exist, which will be showcased at the fair,” it adds by saying in a press release.

A VDMA study informs that German machines allow saving of 28 per cent of energy and 33 per cent of water in a comparison between 2014 and 2004, within various segments of the textile sector.

Roland Berger Strategy Consulting, a world-wide acting business consultancy company has awarded top marks to the German textile technology.

In the field of textile production big steps can be made and within the subsequent process of tailoring, the approaches are multifarious and divided into small sections.

Fabric cutting machines, fusing presses, ironing machines and sewing machines are used which consume a tremendous quantity of steam, heat, vacuum and compressed air.

“The costs produced in these processes are part of the production and labour costs. However, unused potentials still exist in the field of energy cost-saving as a recent report reveals,” Messe Frankfurt added.

After 30 months of research, an EU study reveals that lack of information and focusing on possible energy-saving in the clothing production processes is evident.

“Matters can be rectified by the information campaign ‘Energy Made-to-Measure’ of the umbrella organisation, Euratex in Brussels,” the study observes.

“Up to 2016 about 300 clothing manufacturing companies in particular small and medium sized ones shall profit from this campaign,” the report reveals.

Some lectures to be held within the Texprocess forum will give special attention to the subject of sustainable production.

Under the label ‘Blue Competence’ of VDMA, some exhibitors will also present special resource-saving product technologies. (AR)
