R&D INTO SUSTAINABLE TEXTILE DYEING AND FINISHING

TINABLE

Motivation


The study, use and optimisation of eco-sustainable technologies for the textile industry in dyeing and finishing will help reduce consumption of water, energy and chemicals, as well as waste, (microplastics, emerging pollutants, wastewater, etc.).

In addition, the substitution or elimination of synthetic products such as dyes and auxiliaries, replacing them where possible with products of natural origin for fabric dyeing and functionalisation is another important milestone to achieving sustainable products that fulfil the requirements and technical specifications of the end product.

Objectives


  • Validate and implement technologies that aid the development of eco-finishes in the textile industry, reducing the consumption of water, energy and chemical products, as well as reducing waste (microplastics, emerging pollutants, wastewater, etc.).
  • To study the technical and economic feasibility of the use of dyes and auxiliary products of natural origin (vegetable, microorganisms, etc.), as well as the functionalisation of textiles, avoiding chemical raw materials of non-renewable origin.
  • Optimising sustainable finishing processes by ensuring compliance with the requirements and technical specifications associated with the use of the final article (light fastness, full colour range).

Expected results


  • Obtain dyes by seeding bacteria in a bioreactor to replace chemical dyes and auxiliaries.
  • Improve the light fastness of natural dyes through natural filters and new mordanting formulas.
  • Obtain new natural dyes that are difficult to find in nature and extending the colour palette.
  • Study of different plants and natural dyes for the functionalisation of textiles.
  • Study and realization of dyeing water from the textile industry for reuse in dyeing processes..
