Jeanologia, the Spanish specialist and innovator of sustainable technologies for garment finishing, will make an exclusive presentation at ITMA 2015, Milan of its ZERO DISCHARGE PRODUCTION CENTRE, the first jeans finishing plant that guarantees ZERO®Ø contamination. ZERO®Ø technology recycles 100% of the water used, eliminating the need for water treatment and also the use of pumice stone.
The ZERO DISCHARGE PRODUCTION CENTER, based on 20 years of Jeanologia’s research, is set to revolutionize the textile industry as it can achieve ZERO®Ø waste, thanks to the efficient combination of Jeanologia’s three technologies: light of the laser, wet and dry Ozone G2, and nano bubbles of the reactor eFlow. The combination of the company’s laser, G2, and eFlow technologies reduces water consumption by 90%, the use of chemicals by 90%, and energy consumption by 50%.
Very upbeat of the new technology, Jeanologia’s CEO, Enrique Silla remarked at the introduction of the ZERO®Ø, “This represents a revolution in the textile industry because at Jeanologia we have managed to transform the way in which jeans are being produced, by way of technologies that reduce the use of water, chemicals, and energy. We are now taking this transformation a step further with our ZERO®Ø technology, which recycles the water used and eliminates any waste.”
The denim industry currently uses around 350 million cubic metre of water; and Jeanologia’s intelligent treatment plant, ZERO®Ø, will achieve water saving of 315 million cubic metre. Jeanologia believes that by 2020, 80% of global production will be generated by zero discharge centres technology. The Spanish company’s technological innovations of ZERO®Ø, will help the company make advances in the optimization of production processes, in the reduction of waiting times, and in the adaptation to large and small scale production.
