Huntsman Textile Effects presents innovative technology at AATCC IC
Mar '09
On March 11, the AATCC held their International Conference in Myrtle Beach featuring three educational tracks which mirror the Association's interest groups: Concept 2 Consumer(C2C), Chemical Applications and Materials.

As a long-standing member of the AATCC, Huntsman Textile Effects associates were amongst the 300 registrants and also played an active role with a presentation by Mike Cheek, our Technical Resource Director for Americas, who offered the 60 attendees of the chemical applications track “A Glimpse into Sustainable Processes and Green Chemistries for Textile Processing.”

Underlining our commitment to Living Sustainability, Huntsman invests considerable efforts to find more sustainable methods for textile processing to both reduce the carbon footprint of these processes and lessen the overall environmental impact of textile manufacturing. At the same time, we are also concentrating our know-how in developing biotech chemical processing aids derived from renewable resources in order to lower the dependence on petroleum as a starting raw material.

Mike Cheek's paper explored an example of a "Sustainable Bleaching Process", and took a look at recent developments in biodiesel-based surfactants, not derived from mineral oil, that are being explored for use in textiles.
