The Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC) is urging the textile industry to harness new innovations to create a new era of reduced environmental impact which minimises the use of water, energy and petrochemicals. The trade body has published a white paper, ‘Destination low carbon: Global technology and innovation reducing the environmental footprint of textile coloration’, to summarise what it describes as exemplary practice in the sector. It highlights a total of six case studies from the UK, Switzerland, Sweden, and Germany, explaining methods developed and established over recent years as well as brand-new innovation.
