Oeko-Tex launches new tool 'Detox to Zero'

The Oeko-Tex Association has launched a new tool 'Detox to Zero', which enables manufacturers along the textile chain to assess the status of their chemical management systems and the quality of their waste water and sludge. The tool allows companies to better identify harmful substances in textile production and handle them in a responsible way.

Detox to Zero comprises of three basic modules, one of which is MRSL screening of all chemicals used. The second is an analysis and assessment of the established chemical management system and lastly, a review of all waste water and sludge with regards to the eleven groups of harmful chemicals, as stated by Greenpeace.

According to Oeko-Tex, the results are summarised in an annual status report that lists the extent to which the company is already compliant with the Detox targets and includes specific improvement suggestions.

“With this status report, companies are also able to transparently communicate the stages achieved on the path toward complete elimination of Detox substances,” it said. (AR)
