New Program Activation: Clean by Design Chemistry and Wastewater Management Program
Clean by Design Chemistry and Wastewater Management Program
Clean by Design Chemistry is a program for wet processing facilities designed to establish best practices and procedures for improving inputs, reducing chemical use, conducting careful oversight and operations of wastewater treatment, and enabling recovery and reuse of chemicals whenever possible.
The cornerstone of the Clean by Design Chemistry and Wastewater Management Program is a set of Ten Best Practices for textile mills that are practical, low cost, and easy to implement. To drive results, Aii integrated ZDHC tools and gained their endorsement of the Program and mapped the Program to the Higg Brand and Retailer Module and the Higg Facility Environmental Module.
Results to date have been impressive:
•Average of 12 improvement opportunities per facility
•92% of the improvement opportunities taken in action
•Identification and substitution of several hazardous chemicals
•Up to 29% reduction of commodity chemicals
•Up to 43% operational time and 64% chemical savings from recipe optimization
To bring the program to China, Bangladesh, India, and Europe, Aii has partnered with Sustainable Textile Solutions, a brand of BluWin Limited; NimkarTek; and The BHive.
