Trends in fashion and fabric design sometimes make it difficult to process textiles while improving the sustainability profile.
At DuPont Industrial Biosciences, our Textile Market team has been working for many years on the development of innovative, yet cost-effective biosolutions. By using less water, less energy, and improving process efficiency, our products can enable more sustainable pretreatment or finishing. One example of this is DuPontTM PrimaGreen®, a revolutionary enzymatic bleaching innovation. It not only performs at much lower temperatures and uses less water than conventional bleaching, it gives the fabric a softer ‘handle’ and yields brighter colors after dyeing.
Designers are now seeking out environmentally preferrable options like these for their textile processing, enabling them to market their products with new sustainability claims.
