Green Dyeing Technology and Sustainable Chemistry

News in the advancement of dyeing and finishing technology published in this issue consist of (1) Green Dyeing Technology (2) New hydrophilic softener for textile finishing (3) New finishing and testing solutions for pollen management on textile surfaces and (4) CadiraTM concept for saving valuable resources.
Green Dyeing Technology
It has been known that the textile dyeing process requires large amounts of water for the process and creates a lot of toxic effluents coming from auxiliaries and dyestuffs which are not fully bound to the textile goods and those left from the process discarded as wastewater and toxic chemicals. Therefore, a team of scientists from the University of Georgia College of Family and Consumer Sciences investigates an innovative and environmentally friendly textile dyeing technology by using nanocellulose fibers to reduce amount of wastewater and toxic chemicals. This team's project has won the first prize in inaugural Green and Sustainable Chemistry Challenge at the Green and Sustainable Chemistry Conference in Berlin. This green textile dyeing technology involves using cellulose to dye materials. During homogenization process, cellulose is converted into a hydrogel material consisting of nanocellulose fibers having 70 times more surface area than those of cotton fibers. This nanocellulose hydrogel material having high surface areas with high reactivity allows to uptake and attach more dye molecules. After that, dyed nanocellulose hydrogels are transferred to a textile by a conventional printing method. (Source: www.fibre2fashion.com)
New hydrophilic softener for textile finishing from Wacker
Wacker has launched a new product of hydrophilic fabric softener to improve the softness of textile and remain absorbent at the same time after finishing, called “WETSOFT NE 750”. The main constituents of “WETSOFT NE 750” are block copolymers based on aminofunctional silicones and polyglycol. The silicone segments arrange themselves in free-moving loop on the outside of the fabric and reduce friction between the fibers providing the softness on the treated fabrics. While the polyglycol segments remain permeable to water. “WETSOFT NE 750” offers significant advantages for making product formulation easily. “WETSOFT NE 750” is marketed as a water-free concentrate with high solid content. This hydrophilic fabric softener is self-emulsifying and can be diluted with water in a ratio of 1:1 to 1:5 to form a stable emulsion. Both cotton and cotton blended polyester fabrics can be finished with this product by either exhaust or padding method. (Sources: www.innovationintextiles.com and www. Fibre2fashion.com)
New finishing and testing solutions for pollen management on textile surfaces
Nowadays there have no effective textile protection for people allergic to pollen. In Germany, about one in six of population suffers from hay fever caused by pollen from trees, shrubs, gasses and crops. Pollen adheres readily to clothing or domestic textiles, such as curtain, sofas, carpet and bedding. After adhering, pollen finds its way through the respiratory system into the body where it triggers allergic symptoms in people who are over-sensitive to pollen. Scientists at CHT R. Beitlich GmbH have developed two special anti-pollen textile finishing treatments. The two biofunctional finishes work in opposite ways either repels or binds pollen on the textile surface. For example, clothing may have pollen-repellent properties in order to reduce the amount of pollen brought into the home after a walk in springtime. In contrast, the domestic textiles like sofas, carpets and curtains should have a pollen-binding effect in order to keep the troublesome allergens far away from the allergy sufferer. For pollen adhesion/repellence testing, the Hohenstein scientists have developed a test set up for pollen adhesion/repellence in the laboratory by simulating the flight of pollen and also studying how pollen adheres to textiles. The aim of this testing method is to help scientists to assess the ability of textile finish to absorb pollen, retain it or deliberately release it accurately. (Sources: www.hohenstein.de และ www.

Vietnam Textile enterprises not to worry about output for export

31 Aug 10 ,  Vietnam Business News
  • 0

According to Mr Nguyen Son, Deputy General Secretary of Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (Vitas), through this year and even in the next few years, exporters should not worry about the lack of orders, but prepare resources to meet the export orders instead.

According to Vitas, at present export orders for 2010 have been completed and signed by many enterprises who are striving to make timely deliveries. Meanwhile, many enterprises have signed orders for 2011 with a stable number of importers.


TNG Investment and Trade Company (Thai Nguyen), a company specializing in the production of garments exported to the US and EU, said that the company has not only signed export orders in 2010, it has also signed principle contracts for 2011, with total contract value up to US$ 45 million.


Principle contracts signed for 2011 by TNG are mainly with large clients such as Columbia Sportswear, The Children’s Place, Amerex, Hansae and JC Penney – the largest retail group of garments of the US.


Mr Nguyen Van Thoi, Director of TNG said that the main motivation helping TNG sign export orders for 2011 with large firms in the world is the Phu Binh Factory, which will start operation in 2011. The factory will use about 4,000 workers, with 64 sewing lines, significantly raising the company’s total capacity.


Viet Tien Garment Corporation is also negotiating with partners on export orders to the US in 2011, with a value of about US$ 100 million.


As explained by Mr Son, the enterprises with large-scale production often have the advantage in receiving orders from major importers such as Wal-Mart, JC Penny Corporation, K Mart Corporation, Target Corporation and Union Bay, who tend to choose reputable vendors to order with a certain amount from the previous year.


Export orders are creating the opportunity for the textile and garment industry to complete export targets this year and growth targets for the coming years. However, maintaining export growth while ensuring the quality of growth is not an easy task for many businesses, particularly in the present context of increased imported raw material prices and labour costs.


Mr Son admitted that the growth of textile and garment exports in the first seven months this year at 17% is very good, but not sustainable, due to the fact that the industry still faces difficulties in human resources and has yet to take control of raw material sources – two elements to create quality growth.


Assessing the situation of textile and garment exports, Vitas said, exports are favourable, with exports to mid- August 2010 estimated at over US$ 6.3 billion, while with the present order situation, the textile and apparel industry expects to fully achieve its target of US$ 10.5 billion exports this year.


However, Vitas also recommended businesses solve the problem of highly increased production costs and overcome the shortage of workers, and offers solutions for reference, including research on the application of technologies and streamlined production process to reduce the pressure on labour. – VCCI
