Xeros process makes blue jeans greener
Denim is one of the world’s most popular fabrics and with more than one billion pairs of jeans produced ever year, they’re one of our favourite garments.
But our love of denim is putting enormous pressure on the environment consuming vast quantities of water, chemicals, energy and, for those who prefer a stonewashed look, pumice stone.
The world’s biggest denim manufacturers use hundreds of tonnes of pumice every month, most of which will only last for two or three process cycles before it requires disposal, often to landfill.
New technologies, including those developed by Xeros are emerging to address resource consumption and lessen the environmental impact of our jeans.
Mark Nichols, CEO of Xeros says: "Improving the sustainability of the clothes we wear is no longer an option; it is an imperative. Without major changes in the way denim garments are made, the pressure on our environment will simply become intolerable."
The application of Xeros’ products to denim finishing significantly reduces consumption of water, chemistry and energy and replaces pumice stone completely.
Mark Nichols continues: “We understand that the industry is highly competitive and consumers are reluctant to pay more for sustainability. We have designed our products with industry leaders to help them achieve their objectives to improve sustainability without compromising on either cost or quality.”
This week Xeros, together with Ramsons Garment Finishing Equipments Ltd will be showcasing our denim finishing solutions to major garment manufacturers in India at Garment Technology Expo and again in February at the Dhaka International Textile and Garment Machinery Exhibition.
