Thanks to its strategy that includes the continuous investment in people, research, development, and service, ERCA TCS aims to advance ethical and responsible circular innovation in the new emerging area of green chemistry that is rapidly growing in demand driven by ever tighter regulations.

At the heart of ERCA TCS's innovative portfolio lies REVECOL®, a new generation of innovative, responsible, competitive, certified, and high performing textile chemical auxiliaries. These are 100% made in Italy, using a pioneering and end-to-end certified production process that transforms transform critical and abundant waste materials such as exhausted vegetable oil, into an impressive range of textile auxiliaries that can be used to process any kind of textile fibres, both virgin and recycled.

The current REVECOL® by ERCA TCS product range is already extensive and is readily applicable and a drop-in solution for solution in the textile pre-treatment, dyeing and finishing processes.

Certified excellence

REVECOL® has already been tested and certified to some of the industry’s most well-known and stringent standards. This includes important certifications: GRS, RCS, ZDHC Chemical Gateway, bluesign and GOTS.

ERCA TCS is the first company in the world to offer GRS certified chemical products, opening the door for mills to use the responsible chemical auxiliaries demanded by their retail customers. With the support and analysis of the bluesign Academy, ERCA TCS is creating a Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) for some REVECOL® branded chemical products, certifying the reduction of CO2 emissions compared to the use of conventional chemistry. First results of this work, have shown a CO2 reductions in the range of 30% – 72%.

REVECOL® by ERCA TCS was first launched at the giant ITMA textile machinery show in Milan, where it was also announced the synergy between ERCA TCS’S REVECOL®, YKK and Patagonia that lead to a successful implementation. This approach not only addresses the pressing need for sustainable production practices but also sets new standards for the industry, proving that environmental responsibility and economic success can go hand in hand.

REVECOL® by ERCA TCS was also recently awarded:

  • November 2022 Responsible Care® Award by Federchimica, the Italian federation of the chemical industry.
  • It has been included in the BAT (Best Available Techniques) by the European Community
  • November 2023 European Responsible Care ®Award by the European Chemical Industry – CEFIC.

“ERCA TCS is poised to become an international benchmark for sustainable innovation, contributing to the reduction of the textile industry's environmental impact,” noted Fabio Locatelli, CEO of ERCA TCS and Associate of ERCA Group. “Our focus on R&D and our commitment to the well-being of people and the planet are at the core of our mission."

ERCA TCS invites the textile community to Performance Days in Munich on 20-21 March 2024, at booth IN09. This occasion is a unique platform for exploring REVECOL®'s transformative potential and engaging with the new generation of sport and active sport players.
