Shaoxing County is one of the biggest textile hubs in China and many of its textile enterprises have already set examples by adopting advanced technologies in projects which will help in lowering carbon-emissions.

Two of the most preferred options are wind power and solar energy, which are inexhaustible supplies of clean energy. Asia-Pacific Special Width Dyeing Company has invested 60 million Yuan in a project for industrial water heating and energy saving system through solar energy.

The first phase of the solar collector system (3,000 square meters) has been completed. It has the capacity to produce 300 tons of hot water (70 degrees Celsius) per day and will help save 30 tons of steam per day.

The solar collector system can save 154,000 tons of steam per year, equivalent to more than 15,000 tons of standard coal. The use of solar energy will also help to a great extent, reduce harmful gas emissions and in turn reduce the carbon-footprint.

Benniu Anhydrous Waterless Printing and Dyeing Technology Company located at Economic Development Zone in Keqiao has with a new technology, overcome heat-sublimation transfer printing technical problems of disperse dyes on cotton and other natural fiber fabrics.

The technology is suitable for mass production, while eliminating the need of a large volume of follow-up cleaning work and it saves heat in the drying process and produces no wastewater discharge.

Chen Jun-liang, General Manager of the company said that a production line can directly reduce 200 tons of sewage emissions per day and is equivalent to a decline of 45 percent. The investment needed for this technology is in the range of 500,000-700,000 Yuan.
