Genencor introduces PrimaGreen EcoFade LT100
Feb '09
Genencor, a division of Danisco A/S, announced its latest solution for the textile industry: PrimaGreen EcoFade LT100. PrimaGreen EcoFade LT100 is a ready-to-use enzyme product for denim bleaching and shading, where a combination of a new laccase and a new type of mediator is incorporated into one product allowing for creating completely new looks while reducing environmental impact.

This new technology enables bleaching at neutral pH and low temperature, providing savings in rinsing water and neutralization chemicals, and – most importantly – savings in energy.

'We estimate that with this new technology textile processors can save up to 90% of heating energy used today in the denim bleaching process ,' says Glenn Nedwin, Executive Vice President of Genencor's Technical Enzyme Business Unit.

'We believe this represents a significant cost saving, which can be further enhanced by combining the low temperature cellulase technology of the Genencor IndiAge Super products. This means that the whole process of abrasion, shade adjustment and bleaching of denim can be done without any need for heat and/or steaming in the process. Lower energy consumption also means about 90% lower CO2 emissions from the same process stage. With this new product, we are convinced we are offering a powerful solution for the denim bleaching and shading segment of the textile processing world.'

PrimaGreen EcoFade LT100 is part of a series of solutions for the textile industry Genencor is working on, as its vision is to help the textile processing industry to become more sustainable. PrimaGreen EcoFade LT100 will be made available to the market through selected Genencor partners and customer base.
