Water is a key element in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in the future regulatory framework of the textile industry. Those who do not take sustainability into account will be out of the market.
The textile industry is one of the most water-consuming, most wastewater-producing and one of the most polluting industries. For World Water Day, celebrated on March 22, 2023, Jeanologia is highlighting the need to convert production centers into eco-efficient plants that promote sustainability and circular economy. The company has developed technology that reduces water consumption from 100 l to 1 l from the fabric to the finished garment thanks to its technologies.
»We are facing a water crisis and as an industry we have the responsibility to produce using the least resources and eliminate waste.«
Carmen Silla, Marketing Director, Jeanologia
Jeanologia, Paterna/Spain, is attempting to achieve total dehydration and detoxification in the world of denim. For the fabric, the company's G2 Dynamic and Anubis technologies reduce water consumption by up to 95%, chemical consumption by 100%, energy consumption by 80% and carbon footprint by up to 40% compared to conventional methods.
For the jean finishing, the state-of-the-art G2 Ozone air-washing machine achieves vintage looks and stone-wash effects without the use of water, chemicals or pumice. In addition, its eFlow technology uses nanobubbles to transport chemicals to the garment instead of using water, thus making zero discharge possible and minimal water usage. With the combination of both technologies, the company eliminates 80% water and 70% chemicals from the process.
The key to reducing water consumption to just 1 l includes H2Zero, a small water treatment system that connects to each washing machine, thus achieving a closed circuit.
The environmental impact in the textile industry can be constantly measured with the EIM software. This is a standard within the industry that sets the roadmap towards lower water consumption and more sustainable processes, promoting continuous improvement in garment finishing.
Jeanologia closed 2022 with an increase in its ecological result account, which measures in m³ the contaminated water that is no longer discharged into rivers and seas thanks to its technology and services. In 2022 alone, it saved more than 19,375,000 m³ of water, enough to provide water for a year for cities such as Managua, Oslo and Marrakesh.
In addition, it eliminated more than 90 million kg of CO2, the same amount of carbon captured during a year by a 107,000 acre forest.
