Asahi Kasei has developed Velutine Evo, the new fibrillation finishing technology for Bemberg fabrics. Velutine Evo is a finishing refinement technology developed in the Japanese laboratories of Asahi Kasei that offers a premium finish to the best qualities of the classic Bemberg peach skin touch. It brings better environmental, energy and water profiles.

The roll out of the Velutine Evo technology will flow from the activation of Bemberg partners who have their own, vertical in-house dye and finishing expertise. They include Ipeker, Ekoten and Matias & Araujo in Europe, with Debs and A-Girls in Japan. Also, Asahi Kasei has cooperatively partnered two dye houses in Europe and two in Japan. They are Tifas and TF2000 in Italy plus Komatsu-Seiren and Nihon Kasen in Japan. These have been selected to service the production activity of partners without in-house facilities.

Asahi Kasei has asked ICEA the 3rd party organisation to measure the environmental impacts and produce a preliminary LCA - Life Cycle Assessment - study for Velutine Evo that confirms all the projected data savings, and TIFAS has carried out practical processing trials in order to verify the process feasibility and technical results (technical results on the finished product).

Velutine Evo is associated with several environmental benefits. There is 16.5 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, decrease in total consumption of energy resources of 21 per cent, electricity savings of 20.5 per cent, steam reduction of 15.9 per cent and 19.5 per cent reduction in direct water consumption for ennobling process.
