China textiles mills save millions in sustainability drive

Written by John Mowbray

SHANGHAI - A group of Chinese textiles mills last year made millions of dollars' worth of savings by implementing simple measures aimed at driving sustainability. In the Greater Suzhou Area, 23 textile mills implemented 138 factory projects, saving US$8.4 million in water, energy, and chemical operating costs. The projects had an average payback of just 17 months and collectively saved 4 million cubic metres of water and 30,000 tons of coal (or its energy equivalent).
