Pollution laws leading to dyestuff price hikes

Written by John Mowbray

chemicalBASEL - Spikes in textile dyestuff prices can be expected for the foreseeable future due to the enforcement of stricter environmental laws which many dyestuff producers lack the technology to adhere to. The new laws, being implemented by governments in India and China to address mounting pollution issues, are squeezing dyestuff supplies and pushing prices up, with some products, such as reactive blacks, even doubling in price. This is according to a briefing to Ecotextile News by ETAD (Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers).
