DyeCoo Textile has introduced a new technology that enables dyeing of fabrics using carbon dioxideAt a factory in Vietnam, Dutch startup DyeCoo Textile Systems has introduced a new technology that enables clothes to be dyed using carbon dioxide. The process eliminates the need for water and bonding chemicals, reducing water use and emissions by up to 50%. DyeCoo has been working with garment makers in various countries since 2010, with support from Nike Inc.’s venture arm and Ikea. The company is part of a growing trend of startups exploring greener alternatives to traditional textile dyeing, a process that is responsible for over half of the fashion industry’s total emissions. The energy-intensive nature of dyeing, which often requires hot water and coal-based energy sources, contributes to the industry’s carbon footprint.
