DyStar Group, a leading provider of dyes, performance chemicals and color solutions for the textile industry, and DyeCoo Textile Systems, a textile dyeing company committed to sustainable processes, are working together to develop products using DyeCoo’s system of substituting water for carbon dioxide (CO2) in the dyeing process. The technology has the potential to save water and energy, both of which are necessities for textile dyers, which are among the world’s greatest polluters.
DyeCoo is the world’s first supplier of industrial CO2 dyeing equipment, which uses recycled CO2 gas instead of water to dye textiles. Dystar said the partnership will pave the way for more ecological products that will meet the textile industry’s demands.
“We are very pleased with DyStar’s dedication to support our water and chemical free dyeing technology,” said DyeCoo CEO Mats Blacker. “Collaborations like this one are key to further help our groundbreaking technology towards global implementation. Seeing that the textile industry is growing exponentially, making tangible sustainable and economical viable improvements a reality are not only vital for our planet, but also for the future of the entire industry. We strive to deliver commercially viable solutions for the textile industry while continuing to develop breakthrough technologies. Companies like DyStar help us to achieve those goals.”
Nike has already tapped into DyeCoo’s waterless dyeing technology for its ColorDry Polo.
