DuPont & Pacific Textiles Co-optimize Cotton Textiles Production
DuPont announced that DuPont’s enzyme, latest innovation co-working with Pacific Textiles, can be used to replace traditional chemicals in cotton textile processing, so as to save time and water in production course.
DuPont claimed that the enzymes are derived from natural resources and are friendly to environment. Massive water and energy can be reduced if the enzymes, called PrimaGreen, instead of traditional caustic chemicals are used in the processing course.
DuPont Industrial Biosciences Vice President John Panieri said, “The results of these text conducted by Pacific Textiles show that we can bring it to real full factory scale. It offers a more eco-friendly, high-quality and cost-effective alternative for cotton textile manufacturing.”
The results prove that the PrimaGreen, as a replacement for traditional chemicals in cotton textile processing, can averagely reduce 70 percent water and 27 percent energy.
Products made by these cottons also show good whiteness value and maintenance of fabric strength and weight after examinations.
