The Cradle to Cradle approach provides a trend-setting concept in the textile world. Right from the start products shall be created which are suited for biological (compostable) or technical (recyclable) circulation.
The producer of specialty chemicals CHT Group, Tübingen/Germany, focuses on the development of dyes, pigments and auxiliaries for textile finishing which can be decomposed without leaving any residues and easily returned to the natural circulation.
For textiles which are to be developed and produced strictly according to the Cradle to Cradle principle, CHT offers a comprehensive, constantly growing, compostable range for textile finishing. With 57 textile auxiliaries and 32 dyes/pigments CHT has succeeded in achieving the highest rating, the Platinum Material Health Certificate of the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, Amsterdam/Netherlands.
These products help textile manufacturers to achieve the Platinum rating in Material Health, one of 5 categories of the Cradle to Cradle Certified product standard on finished textiles. This contributes to giving textiles a positive ecological footprint.
