SMART TECHNOLOGY

Ecofoot has developed a particle that combines with dyes and other coloration products, creating more sustainable processes

A WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS

R&D

The particles combined with the dye are very versatile.
Other functionalities are being explored such as:

- bleaching and desinfection with peroxides
- stain removal with peroxide
- colour protectors
- application as pigments in hair
- aplication as nanopigments in digital printing inks
- application as pigments in car paints

 There are also more possibilities in line to be studied.
Textile Industry  
The textile industry is a major contributor to global water scarcity, being one of the three most pollutant and consumer of water in the World.


Everyday millions of tons of water are contaminated with dyes, salt, heavy metals and toxic substances of all kinds. 

Most of that water is sent back to the environment very inadequately treated and dangerously harmful to the Fauna and Flora of rivers.
The archaic dyeing processes, in particular, are the prime contributor to much of the water, time and energy consumption that takes place in the textile industry.

In addition, dyeing is also by far the most time-consuming process in textile production leading to lower process efficiency and consequently lower production directly effecting the bottom line of the dye-houses.

Most of the water and energy is consumed in the washing-off of unfixed hydrolysed reactive dye, that reacted with water before it fixed on the fibre. This hydrolysed dye is difficult to remove since it has affinity towards the fibers, and it takes a lot of water and heating to do it.
To make the dyeing process more sustainable and environment friendly, Ecofoot has developed the dye-auxiliary H2COLOR-AUX.
 Our technology allows, with the same conventional dye-house processes, to save up to 70% water, 60% of energy and 50% of time consumption.
WATER SAVINGS: 
70%
ENERGY SAVINGS: 
60%
TIMES SAVINGS: 
50%

QUALITY

Through a reaction mechanism, the H2COLOR particle dyes fix on the fibres in light to medium colors showing good fastness to washing and to rubbing.

EFFICIENCY

The H2COLOR products allow processes to be a lot shorter than standard processes, saving in machine time and increasing productivity. 
With one product, H2COLOR-Denim with indigo, the long process of yarn dyeing is eliminated, shortening the lead time greatly.
