Reducing waste and energy use in the textiles industry

Categories: innovation

Huntsman’s Textile Effects division, headquartered in Singapore in the heart of the international textiles industry, is working with leading brands to provide them the most sustainable products for their garments and fabrics.

Traditionally, polyfluorinated compounds (PFCs) have been used to make end products more resistant to water and stains. Everything from cookware to cosmetics, and construction materials to outdoor gear, has been treated with PFCs to keep them looking newer for longer. But PFCs have been identified as environmentally unfriendly.

Huntsman’s nonfluorinated durable water repellent can be used on high-performance synthetic textiles to provide environmentally friendly clothing that has extreme rain and stain protection. As a result, garments need less frequent washing, thereby reducing the environmental footprint of treated fabrics.

Similarly, Huntsman’s reactive dyes use up to 50 percent less water and energy than conventional dyeing technologies and are free of para-chloro-aniline and other hazardous substances. Made in India at the company’s Baroda production plant and in Thailand at the Mahachai production plant, these dyes also help mills improve productivity and yield, and provide businesses with a cleaner supply chain.
