Archroma, a global leader in color and specialty chemicals, and the former textile, paper and emulsions businesses of Clariant, announced that its ONE WAY sustainability service has been honored with the prestigious ICIS Innovation Award for Best Business Innovation.

The company's ONE WAY sustainability service is being recognized for its game-changing approach to textile manufacturing based on the strong conviction that both ecological and economic benefits are reachable.

Archroma’s ONE WAY was launched in October 2012 to help customers meet their sustainability targets in a fast and reliable manner. It is a 3-step systematic approach to the selection of chemicals and production processes that once completed, gives customers calculation results that assess the cost, performance and environmental profile of the evaluated products and processes.

“We developed this approach with customers, for customers,” says Emrah Esder, Archroma’s Head of Marketing Chemicals, Textile Specialties Business. “Their input was critical in making ONE WAY a sustainability service that customers could count on to make their business more successful.”

ONE WAY systematic approach

The first step is: Product Selection, the selection of products based on data on over 200 ONE WAY products collected and integrated in the “ONE WAY Selector”. All dyes and chemicals included have been screened by Archroma’s product stewardship specialists against more than 15 eco-standards and critiera1, which provides instant information access on how each ONE WAY product scores in terms of toxicological and ecological profile and standards.

The second step is: Process Short Listing, during which textile manufacturers can narrow down their selection of products to one of four process groups, based on their environmental focus and how it affects climate, resources, waste water content and volumes.

The third step is: Solution Selection, based on sophisticated software Archroma calls the ONE WAY Calculator. It assesses the cost, performance and environmental profile of products almost instantly. Possible measurements with the ONE WAY Calculator include:

- The cost and performance of a given product process based on relevant parameters such as dyes and chemicals, water, energy or time;

- Their environmental profile based on actual measurements of chemical oxygen demand (COD), biological oxygen demand (BOD), CO2 emissions, energy consumption and water usage.

Archroma’s Textile Specialties Business has been recognized for the second time by ICIS. In 2012, then a Clariant business, Archroma’s Textile Specialties Business was honored with two ICIS Innovation Awards for its ADVANCED DENIM breakthrough eco-advanced dyeing technology. It received the ICIS Innovation with Best Environmental Benefit Award and the overall ICIS Innovation Award.
