Renewable and eco-friendly textile chemicals

The textile industry uses over 1500 chemicals with about 10% of them classified as hazardous to health and/or environment. A very large portion of these chemicals are synthetic in nature, thus also contributing to increased carbon footprint in operations.

Producing these chemicals from natural, renewable and eco-friendly sources will thus not only help the industry use safe chemicals, but also chemicals with low carbon footprint.
