Alps paving way for cleaner, greener environment with HTE

The strategic partnership between Alps Industries and Huntsman Textile Effects which was signed earlier last year has become more sustainable with Alps Industries adopting AVITERA SE and ERIOPON LT, the latest dye innovation from Huntsman Textile Effects.

From January 2011, Alps Industries will commence use of these revolutionary dyes as part of their initiative to continuously use more green chemistry paving the way for a cleaner and greener environment.

Mr. Sandeep Agarwal MD Alps Industries commented,” AVITERA SE and ERIOPON LT system is revolutionary innovation to meet new standards of environmental sustainability and Alps Industries will use this clean technology for taking a step in environmental savings.

New AVITERA SE reactive dyes, together with ERIOPON LT clearing additive, provide an exceptionally low-temperature, low resources consumption processing system for cellulosic fibers and their blends. Temperatures that never exceed 60°C, combining with short dyeing and washing-off cycles drastically reduce water consumption, save time, energy and cut carbon dioxide emissions.

“This ground-breaking new technology, which allows water and energy savings of 50% and more, is an opportunity for mills, brands and retailers to make a real difference,” says Stephen Gray, Vice-President Research & Technology. “AVITERA SE dyes and ERIOPON LT have a unique set of properties that ensure much lower processing costs, yet high-quality results and greatly improved environmental acceptability. All of these benefits make a key contribution to sustainability in textile processing.”

High solubility allow AVITERA SE dyes to be applied at ultra-short liquor ratios and ensure much lower processing costs. With their outstanding compatibility and low sensitivity to dyeing parameters, the dyes give excellent lab-to-bulk and bulk-to-bulk shade reproducibility, minimizing reprocessing.

AVITERA SE dyeing technology can achieve still further improvements in terms of results, sustainability and cost management in conjunction with Huntsman's GENTLE POWER BLEACH. This novel pretreatment system uses breakthrough enzyme technology for dependable, low-temperature bleaching at neutral pH. Lower treatment and rinsing temperatures enable water and energy consumption during pretreatment to be reduced by as much as 40%.
