The Uludag Textile Exporters Association (UTIB) has signed a new project in order to implement clean production of textiles to avoid excessive use of energy and reduce wastage, especially in the textiles finishing sector.
 
According to a statement issued by UTIB, the association has signed a project under the Textile Industry Integration Pollution Prevention and Control Communiqué, in order to help textile finishing enterprises to achieve their goals through a more sustainable method.
 
The Textile Finishing Industry Cleaner Production project would be implemented by the UTIB with support from the Bursa Textile and Apparel Research and Development Center (BUTEKOM).
 
According to UTIB president Ibrahim Burkay, the companies using lesser raw materials and energy create less harmful chemical wastes and help keep the environment clean.
 
Mr. Burkay said that activities to be carried out under the project would include developing models for a cleaner production plan in the Turkish textile finishing enterprises which would create less wastage.
 
The idea is to spread the activities of sustainable production in the textile finishing industry of Turkey, in order to maintain a healthy environment and create a strong economy, he added.
 
The UTIB official said that the Textile Industry Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Communiqué, under the Environment and Urban Development issued by the Government contain applications that underline the importance of sustainability in production of textiles.
 
The Communiqué discusses the main issues of production process in enterprises that could negatively impact the environment, and provides an alternative through minimization of raw materials and energy and improving efficiency through implementing clean production technology, he added.
 
Mr. Burkay said that the main objective of implementing the project is to ensure that Turkish textile industries carry out manufacturing activities with clean production technologies, and move forward in sustainable development.
