DyStar and RedElec are pleased to announce a significant development collaboration which focuses on sustainable Indigo dyeing for the denim industry.

Increasing global awareness of environmental issues created by the textile supply chain is propelling Brands, Retailers and their Industry partners to look for sustainable solutions for their businesses.

To help address those pressing needs, the DyStar Denim teams in Germany and RedElec Technologie in Switzerland have decided to join forces to develop electrochemical dyeing of Indigo, a sustainable solution that will eliminate harmful substances in dyeing and waste water. The team will use its patented products, DyStar Indigo Vat 40% Solution and RedElec's electrochemical technologies, throughout the development process.

“As a leader in ecology & environment in the textile industry and technology leader for Indigo, our customers expect us to develop new products and processes that help reduces their environmental impact,” said Thorsten Hüls, Marketing Manager Denim in Ludwigshafen. “The cooperation with RedElec is a big step forward to help improve the environmental profile of Indigo dyeing,” added Günther Widler, Technology Manager Denim.

With the collaboration, RedElec is given opportunities to explore and further develop its new and promising electrochemical technologies for clean processes. “In the near future, electrochemical processing will become the new and essential technology to limit the negative impacts of industrial activities”, said Dr. Crettenand, Director of RedElec.

The initiative further affirms DyStar's sustainability and econfidence commitments to the textile industry – to offer sustainable solutions through environmentally & ecologically friendly products, process and services – a “sure-to-win” strategy which will also help its customers stay ahead of competitors.

DyStar, with a heritage of over 100 years of both product and application innovation, was founded in 1995 as a coloration specialist for the textile and leather industries. Since then, the company has transformed itself into a solution provider, offering customers a complete range of colorants, auxiliaries and services.

A Swiss company founded in 2007, RedElec Technologie SA specializes in new electrochemical technologies which enable redox transformations (reduction or oxidation) to be carried out economically and with the least impact to the environment on production sites. RedElec's electrochemical processes can be applied to textile dyeing, wastewater treatment, organic electro-synthesis and metal recovery.
