Archroma showcases at Igatex Pakistan 2017
Apr '17
Archroma, a global leader in colour and specialty chemicals, is presenting innovative technologies at Igatex Pakistan 2017, with the motto "It's wonderful. Colours enhanced, performance enhanced, sustainability enhanced". These technologies stress on sustainability, and highlight performance, cost optimisation and responsible textile production.
For example, Archroma's advanced denim technology, based on "Denim-Ox" and "Pad/Sizing-Ox" dyeing processes, allows users to reduce water consumption and wastewater by up to 92 per cent,  eliminate up to 63 per cent of the usual cotton waste, and save up to 30 per cent in energy costs compared to traditional Indigo processes. The company estimates that the use of this technology allowed savings of about 700 million litres of water in 2012 alone. 
Archroma's Denisol Indigo 30 liq brings indigo back to its roots by manufacturing the pre-reduced indigo solution at a "zero liquid discharge" plant in Jamshoro, creating stock available locally, and therefore meeting the demands of customers without complicated logistics or unnecessary costs. With the manufacture of Denisol Indigo 30 liq in a "zero liquid discharge" facility, consumption of water and energy is reduced significantly, and manufacturing wastes are converted into sludge. Less indigo is also required to achieve the same colour depth.
The company's new range of dyes - EarthColors - is created from agricultural waste such as almond shells, saw palmetto, rosemary leaves, etc. They can be used to provide rich red, brown and green colours to denim and casual wear. With EarthColors, Archroma helps brand owners and textile mills inform their consumers about how the colours of their clothes are made, and where the raw materials come from.
"At Archroma, we continuously challenge the status quo in the deep belief that we can make our industry sustainable, and we do this using the strong foundation of an expertise built over more than 130 years. We are very excited to meet customers, brands, retailers and consumers in Pakistan, and show them how Archroma can support them in the needs and challenges they face on their own markets," Noted Mujtaba Rahim, CEO of Archroma Pakistan. 
By offering a constant flow of eco-advanced and innovative new process and functional chemicals, Archroma provides solutions that combine performance, safety and low impact on resources, the company said. (SV)
