Genencor to sponsor RITE Conference
Sep '09
Genencor is this year's platinum level sponsor of the RITE conference – dedicated to Reducing the Impact of Textiles on the Environment.

The conference takes place in London on 6 October 2009 and will feature leading speakers from the world of fashion, textiles and retail - for example Tesco, Sainsburys, IKEA, John Lewis, Marks & Spencer.

'Genencor is sponsoring the RITE conference as we operate from the vision that we can enable the textile processing industry to be more sustainable. All our research efforts are geared towards this -- we are currently developing ground-breaking new technologies for the textile industry, which reduce chemicals, water usage, energy consumption and work under much milder conditions. Moreover, our solutions tackle specific needs and enhance performance -- for instance, our recent first-to-market enzymatic bleaching technology (the key component in the Huntsman Gentle Power Bleach system) yields better product results than existing technologies', says Nico van Schoot, Senior Product Manager, Global Textiles at Genencor.

Nico adds: 'To emphasize how important this is, we have introduced a new product portfolio called PrimaGreen, our product line for more sustainable bleaching and finishing of textiles and garments. The RITE conference appears to be the premier platform to show and discuss the benefits of our technology and solutions for the textile industry at large.- therefore, we see it as one of the key venues to interact with all partners across the value chain.'

Nico van Schoot will present during the morning plenary session, highlighting Genencor's PrimaGreen portfolio of solutions, enabling more sustainable textile processing.
