Nike announced that it would expand the application scale of anhydrous dyeing technology
recently, Nike announced that it had reached a strategic partnership with dyecoo textile systems B.V. Dyecoo, headquartered in the Netherlands, has developed and manufactured commercial anhydrous textile dyeing machines. D. replace yecoo's technology in time, use recyclable carbon dioxide, and eliminate the use of water in textile dyeing process. The company's name "dyecoo" comes from the English words "dyeing" and "co2." (carbon dioxide) refers to the dyeing process using carbon dioxide. This partnership reflects Nike's long-term commitment to designing and developing products with the most outstanding athletic performance for athletes, and is also a reflection of the company's overall strategy of sustainable business and innovation
Eric sprunk, vice president of products and products of Nike, said: "Anhydrous dyeing is a major step in our journey to serve athletes and benefit the earth. This cooperation has strengthened Nike's long-term strategy and deepened our commitment to innovation and sustainable development. We believe that this technology has the potential to bring revolutionary changes to the textile manufacturing industry. We hope to cooperate with progressive dyeing manufacturers, textile manufacturers and consumer clothing brands to expand the application scale of this technology, and Promote in the whole industry. "
Nike has been exploring this technology for the past eight years, and is expected to show the latest clothing made of textiles dyed with anhydrous dyeing technology in subsequent activities this year, aiming to promote the application of this technology to larger scale production
Reinier mommaal, CEO of dyecoo, said, "we are very excited to work with Nike to jointly promote this technology. At the same time, we believe that this technology has great benefits and impact. The dyeing process using this technology does not consume water, and Secretary General Zheng Long said: "In terms of plastic production, the consumption is lower, there is no need to use chemical additives, and there is no need to dry, such as machines, indoor and outdoor lighting appliance shells, hair dryer components, etc. the whole process speed is doubled. This technology can also improve the quality of dyed fabrics, support more control of the dyeing process, support new dyeing properties, and change the fabric dyeing process, so as to improve the material utilization. The dyeing process can be carried out almost anywhere. I We hope that in the near future, more industry leaders will work with us to make use of this innovative technology. "
the water consumption of traditional textile dyeing is huge. It is estimated that at present, the dyeing of a kilogram of textile materials consumes an average of litres of water. Industry analysts estimate that more than 39 million tons of polyester will be dyed every year before 2015. Nike said that dyecoo's supercritical fluid carbon dioxide dyeing technology (SCF CO2 dyeing technology for short) is expected to have a very positive impact on Asia in particular, because most of the global textile dyeing industry is located in Asia. With the large-scale application of this technology, a large amount of water required for traditional textile dyeing can be saved, and at the same time, fossil fuel energy related to heating these water can be saved accordingly. Eliminating the use of water in textile dyeing processes can also eliminate the risk of sewage discharge (a known environmental hazard). In addition, CO2 used in dyecoo dyeing process can also be recycled
dyecoo is considered to be the first company to successfully apply SCF CO2 process to commercial dyeing of polyester fabrics, and the research on applying this technology to other natural and synthetic fabrics is already in progress. SCF CO2 technology has been safely used on a large scale in other industries such as coffee decaffeinate and extraction of natural essence and spices
