Italian textile machinery manufacturers are occupying nearly 30 per cent of the total available surface area and are major players at the 17th edition of ITMA, the world's foremost trade fair dedicated to textile machinery, currently going on in Italian city of Milan, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT) said.
 
The 454 Italian machinery manufacturers exhibiting at the fair are showcasing a high level of technology. “These numbers not only rank Italy first among exhibiting countries, but are a true testament to the vitality of our sector, and confirm the good state of health of the Italian textile industry,” said ACIMIT president Raffaella Carabelli in a press release.
 
For some time now, Italian machinery manufacturers have been focusing on the issue of sustainability for their products, in order to satisfy the demand for efficient technology solutions that effectively cut back on consumption, and consequently on production costs. ”Our association has been committed to the issues of environmental and economic sustainability since 2010, with the 'Sustainable Technologies' project, to which over 40 companies have adhered,” states ACIMIT's president.
 
At ITMA, ACIMIT will present to specialised press the 'Sustainable Technologies' project's effects on CO2 emissions. Based on estimates elaborated by the engineering firm D'Appolonia, in 2014 the reduction of CO2 emissions generated by the use of environmentally green certified Italian machinery in accordance with the 'Sustainable Technologies' project amounted to 221,181 tonnes of CO2, equivalent to the emissions of 38,534 cars travelling on average 35,000 kilometres per year.
 
“This is the contribution our sector can make to the entire industry. Bearing witness to this commitment, the press conference will be followed by a sustainable fashion show,” adds Carabelli. Five young designers will provide an interpretation of sustainable fabrics supplied by six textile manufacturers—Besani, Canepa, Ditta Giovanni Lanfranchi, Eurojersey, Italdenim and Tessitura Attilio Imperiali—with a strong commitment to environmentally responsible policies and make use of Italian machinery.
 
ACIMIT officials are available in hall 8, booth B132a at the eight-day fair to provide visitors with all the necessary information to get to know Italy's textile machinery industry better. (RKS)
