Due to new sustainable technologies developed by Italian textile machinery manufacturers, CO2 emissions contracted 221,000 tons in 2014, equivalent to CO2 emissions generated by 38,000 cars.

Sustainable innovation is among the primary goals promoted by ACIMIT; the association of Italian textile machinery manufacturers, to be achieved through collaboration with recipients of innovative research and companies.

ACIMIT in partnership with the Blumine/sustainability-lab, has backed a study aimed at around 30 textile machinery producers committed to rendering their own products and processes greener.

The study highlights the important role played by technology in the sustainability programs of the businesses.

Speaking at the AGM of ACIMIT, president Raffaella Carabelli said, “Within the sustainability context, research and innovation have become a core issue, and Italy's textile machinery sector is definitely at the forefront.”

“Thanks to our sustainable technologies project, over 1000 'Green Labels' have been assigned to innovative and sustainable machinery. This is a crucial result that promotes the project's commitment and the efforts displayed by over 40 manufacturers taking part in the initiative,” she added.

In 2015, production value of textile machinery makers rose 13 per cent year on year to €2.6 billion, with exports growing 15 per cent to €2.2 billion.

“This sort of progress has not been seen in the industry since 2011, attributable to signs of a recovery in the domestic market, as well as a recovery in the world's most important market for textile machinery: China,” Carbelli remarked. (AR)
