Five more factories in Myanmar completed the European Union (EU)-funded ‘Smart’ chemical management and detox programme during the second half of 2019. The factories —Lin Zhan, Reeblue, Champion Winner Industry, Jiu Sheng and Textile Palace—participated in a six-month programme involving on-site assessment and consultancy and technical training.

These are a denim factory, a footwear factory, a dedicated garment printing facility and two garment factories with washing and printing units, according to information posted on the programme website.

Myanmar is already host to over 60 footwear factories producing for European, Japanese and US markets, as well as some vertically integrated textile mills and a rapidly growing number of garment washing and printing facilities.

‘Smart Textile & Garments’, until recently known as ‘Smart Myanmar’, was first developed in 2017 with support from the German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles and GIZ. Key topics addressed include conformance with zero discharge of hazardous chemicals recommendations and Globally Harmonized System chemical labelling requirements.
