ITMA in Milan: Smart approaches to energy cost reduction and climate protection

CHT Group’s TEXTILE SOLUTIONS offer solution approaches for manufacturing companies of the textile value chain to compensate increasing energy costs and to make a positive contribution to climate protection. Convince yourself of our exciting innovations at Booth B 204 in Hall 5 from June 8-14, 2023.

High cost pressure due to dramatically increasing energy costs as well as the continuously growing importance of internal environmental and climate protection are challenging more and more manufacturing companies. The evaluation and implementation of potential savings is therefore playing an increasingly important role. Therefore, within its TEXTILE SOLUTIONS, the CHT Group has developed solution approaches for manufacturing companies of the textile value chain to compensate high energy costs and to make a positive contribution to climate protection.

The application specialists of the CHT Group work together with the customers to develop individual savings potentials that are specifically tailored to the production facilities and requirements. Thus - depending on the process, fabric and machine - energy savings of up to 30% can be achieved with the use of innovative CHT textile auxiliaries, dyes/pigments and the corresponding process optimization. In addition, the numerous concepts and tailor-made products can minimize water consumption or shorten the process time.

For example, energy-efficient cold bleaching instead of pad-steam bleaching processes in continuous pretreatment and the 4SUCCESS process for energy-efficient and resource-saving pretreatment and dyeing of cotton help to save energy. Likewise, the use of polymer binders such as ARRISTAN CPU, which do not require energy-intensive fixation, saves energy.

Another option is efficient pretreatment with the new polymer technology CPT (Comb Polymer Technology) to achieve good cleaning effects even with low liquor ratios and thus less water to heat up. To save costs for energy-consuming heating, there is also the gentle low-temperature fixation in the easy care finishing. The organIQ EMS Jeans system also enables jeans finishing with the latest nebulization technology and the lowest liquor ratios with a reduced application temperature compared to standard processes. 

With TIME BOOST, a process for fast polyester dyeing processes, not only significant energy but also time savings are achieved by omitting pre-washing and by shortening heating and migration times. SHORT CUT also leads to shorter process times when dyeing polyamide. To avoid cost-intensive intermediate drying, the CHT Group offers SCREEN-2-SCREEN with PRINTPERFEKT S2S which facilitates printing in a wet-on-wet technology.

Furthermore, the group offers special finishing and coating products that support minimal application systems such as spraying, kiss rolling or instable foam coatings. In addition to numerous other products, the CHT Group also offers its customers smart digital tools to optimally support process optimizations. For example, the "BEZAKTIV Soaping Advisor" calculation program within the CHT Textile Dyes app can be used to evaluate and improve dyeing and soaping processes in a simple and target-oriented way.

Energy reductions can therefore be effectively implemented in various textile manufacturing processes and, more than ever, enable major cost savings. At the same time, the process solutions make a significant contribution to environmental and climate protection.

For jeans and garment, new machine technologies and optimized processes can help to save water and energy and to reduce the use of chemicals. With the Technology Supporter product range, the denim and garment experts at LAB102 offer their global jeans customers highly efficient and sustainable solutions.
