Archroma updates One Way calculator with ZDHC MRSL-compliant products
Archroma, a global leader in specialty chemicals, has added its portfolio of ZDHC MRSL-compliant chemicals and dyes to its pioneering ONE WAY Sustainability Calculator. The move will give textile apparel and footwear customers the time-saving advantage of being able to pre-select products that help, at an early stage in their selection process, to continue to drive down the level of impurities in the manufacturing process, which not only means on the final garment or fabric but also in the waste water.
The zero discharge of hazardous chemicals groupÂ´s manufacturers list of restricted substances, sets concentration limits for the chemical groups banned under the ZDHC Joint Roadmap, an initiative first launched in 2011 by major apparel and footwear brands to lead the industry toward zero discharge of hazardous chemicals by 2020.
Archroma published its list of ZDHC MRSL-compliant colorants and chemicals for textile and apparel for the first time in July 2014. Now integrated into the ONE WAY Calculator, the list features a full range of colorants and chemicals for colors and functional effects, and process chemicals, covering fibers to finishing.
Â´The update to ONE WAY will dramatically accelerate the product selection process and time by ensuring that the selected product is not only reducing the amount of energy and water in processing, but also meets the criteria for wastewater set by the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals Group,Â´ comments Paul Cowell, Apparel & Interior Marketing Manager Asia, Textile Specialties Business, Archroma. Â´It adds a whole new level of support for mills and brand owners in their development of innovative textile solutions that are both ecologically and economically sustainable.Â´
The ONE WAY Sustainability Service supports customers in meeting their sustainability targets by providing a fast, measurable and reliable approach to the selection of chemical product and process solutions. All ONE WAY dyes and chemicals have been screened by ArchromaÂ´s product stewardship specialists against more than 15 textiles eco-standards and criteria.
