LEEDS - The Green Guide to ITMA, the handy A5 size pocket-size guide published by MCL Global for visitors to ITMA to enable them to evaluate which textile machinery builders and associated suppliers were offering more sustainable products, is now available online.
As well as analysing raw material, water and chemical usage in the textile industry, the guide looks at the latest environmentally-conscious technology developments across the complete textile and apparel industry supply chain such as preparation & spinning equipment; knitting and hosiery technology; and weaving machinery.
It also covers colouration, drying and finishing machines; dyes, dyestuffs and printing inks; textile chemicals and auxiliaries’; and fibres & yarns.
Following the success of the Guide at the Barcelona show, MCL Global will also now be publishing a new and updated guide for the ITMA Asia + CITME exhibition which takes place on Shanghai in June, 2012.
Many new sustainable technologies follow simple best practise guidelines such as lower water usage (low-liquor ratio dyeing) or improved energy efficiency (weaving technology). However, many visitors do not equate these technologies with REAL cost savings. This is important for textile producers who need every competitive advantage possible.
As an advertiser in The Green Guide to ITMA Asia + CITME, you can make sure that visitors to the show know that not only are your products at the cutting edge of textile technology – but that your business is forward-looking and prepared for the environmental challenges that the industry will have to face up to in the not too distant future.
