Sustainable Textile Industry

Measure, Mitigation and Management of the Carbon  Footprint of product, machinery and dyeing process for energy-saving and effluent-reducing.

Carbon Footprint

The Carbon Footprint is a measure of the relative global amount of carbon dioxide (CO2 in Kgs or tonnes) and other greenhouse gases emitted by a human activity or accumulated over the full life cycle of a product or service. Those gases are the major responsible of global warming and a  peril to climate.

EX. 1 KG OF OIL WHEN IT BURNS WITH OXYGEN FROM AIR IT PRODUCES UP TO 3.3 KG OF CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2).

Base of the Life Cycle Concept

Textile Industry: One of the worst Impact on Global Warming

200 grams Cotton T-Shirt resources requirement:

50 Liters Water in industrial processing
2000 Liters Water in agriculture
4 square metres land
5 kWH
4 kg steam
0,4 kg chemicals
10 kg CO2 emissions

UP TO 50 TIMES CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSION FOLD ITS OWN WEIGHT !!!

IMAGINE UP TO 60 billions kg textile goods processed per year worldwide

Flainox Nrg-Universal 240 – Year 2010 Management & Mitigation of Carbon Footprint life cycle 15 years

The Carbon footprint of Universal NRG through all its is Life Cycle of 15 years is 15 977 tonnes CO2 e.
and 99,6% of GHG emissions occur at usage phase in textile plant.
With Universal NRG Flainox has already achieved outstanding  sustainable performance on CO2 e
reduction of 8,353 tonnes per machine with significant water consumption and energy savings.
The technological improvements through Eco-Design are providing further carbon emissions mitigation at customer usage phase with over 34% reduction versus standard model NRP.
For the textile plant user it could represent up to 35% CO2 e reduction per kg fabric
produced and up to $2,4 million in 15 years savings of operating costs per machine.
