How to make textile processing more Eco-friendly?
Mar '11
With the current environmental issues in mind, and because the textile industry is associated with contributing to the depletion of our planet's valuable resources, the renowned Textile Exchange is hosting a Seminar on Sustainable Textiles in Turkey on April 14, 2011. Huntsman Textile Effects, as sponsor will be attending this highly important seminar as will other industry leaders, and we will make a presentation showcasing products and processes developed to save water in significant quantities.

What makes seminars of this nature especially relevant is that they offer a platform for those who are concerned about environmental issues to meet and share experiences and know-how. Huntsman Textile Effects takes the topic of sustainability truly seriously, which is why we are sponsoring this event and attending with a view to having a forward-thinking exchange with like-minded professionals from the industry.

We will be presenting a paper that analyzes issues surrounding our precious natural resource – water. This will take place on April 14, at 3pm during the session on Responsible Processing – Dyeing and Finishing. As the session is devoted to understanding the main issues and latest innovations on creating more responsible processing in the garment supply chain, our presentation will directly address the question “how to make textile processing with a lower environmental impact?” With living examples we will show how innovative technology can, in fact, make a difference.

Huntsman is a global manufacturer and marketer of differentiated chemicals. Our operating companies manufacture products for a variety of global industries, including chemicals, plastics, automotive, aviation, textiles, footwear, paints and coatings, construction, technology, agriculture, health care, detergent, personal care, furniture, appliances and packaging.
