'Demand for green chemicals has increased'
May '17
There is an increase in the number of textile companies demanding green chemicals. Many of these companies export to European Union nations. Aiming to establish itself as a company delivering textile chemical innovations and creating social impact, Infinium Polychem, a client-oriented outfit, also uses renewable energy as much as possible.

"There is high demand for green chemicals. We have started receiving orders for green chemicals from foreign countries. Moreover, environmental norms in India have become more stringent. We have developed blends of polyacrylate that are better and are also environment-friendly as they reduce consumption of synthetic binders that ultimately bring down the load on the effluent plant," said Darshan Mehta, owner of Infinium Polychem.

"More companies are opting for compact yarns in the medium and fine cotton counts segment. Compact yarns are cost effective due to less sizing. It also improves efficiency of the loom and spinners have the advantage of low recycling of fibres. So, demand for sizing materials that offer high penetration in the yarn has gone up. We have introduced four grades of one shot sizes to suit the end use, depending on counts. These offer greater weaving efficiency," said Mehta, who has spent more than two-and-a-half decades with speciality products used by industries including textile, paper, food, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and others.

It is not easy developing and selling sustainable products when the market is flooded with low-cost and low-quality products. "As far as possible, we use bio-based chemicals in place of basic chemicals, irrespective of cost. We are here to create a niche in the market. Our vision is to become a total solution provider company in the next two years. Every month, we add at least one new product for the industry," added Mehta. (RR)
