Fresh Thinking is Needed to Guarantee “Living Wage”

GDJASUJAMillions of workers across the globe are deprived from the minimum wage required to live a decent life. For them, the Living Wage, a voluntary pay rate set above the statutory minimum wage, is still but a distant dream. Many employers who do not pay the Living Wage argue that they simply cannot afford to. According to them, a minimum wage destroys jobs, particularly for the young. Is their argument about greed – the quest for maximum profit from the bodies and labor of others? We are NOT talking about vulnerable persons who fall victim to traffickers, from desperation, deception, or coercion. Continue reading Fresh Thinking is Needed to Guarantee “Living Wage”

Technology Options for Sustainable Textile Processing

Excerpts of Dr AV Prasad’s speech at the Conference On “Technology Options for Sustainable Growth of Indian Chemical Industry” held by UDCT Alumni Association (UAA) in Ahmedabad

Dr AV Prasad has Master’s degree in textile chemistry and a very impressive career. He started his career in the production department in Century Mills. He has been with Clariant and later with Sandoz. He grew from a technical executive to Vice President, Senior Vice President and to the Country Head in textiles. He was the Global Head of new business development handling innovation projects for alliances, joint ventures and collaborations. He has published more than hundred articles and presented more than hundred papers in major seminars.

Dr AV Prasad speaking on “Technology Options for Sustainable Textile Processing”

I would like to take you to the journey of what’s happening in textiles and what are the challenges for the textile industry. Before I get into that, I just want to make you aware about Archroma. Many people would know Sandoz quite well. Many people would know Hoechst quite well. Many people would know BASF quite well and also a lot of companies in this domain. We have gone through this acquisition process in the last 20 years and a lot of consolidation has happened in this whole process. And now we are here as Archroma having five companies in our portfolio. Overall, we got very good products in the acquisitions including lot of leather chemicals and a few products mainly for the construction industry.

GSP: Altering Preferential Status is ‘Significant’ or ‘Insignificant’?

GDJASUJAThe US administration’s withdrawal of the generalized system of preferences (GSP) status for India is being discussed by all the stakeholders including exporters of ready-made garments because the US accounts for 30-35% of exports of this sector. There is no clear indication as to how much negative impact this would cause on India’s exports to the US, if at all there is going to be any effect. Around $5.6 billion worth of exports from India – covering 1,784 textiles, engineering, gems and jewellery and chemical products – will be impacted when the decision comes into force by May this year. If we look at the pattern of the decision making involved in this case by the US Department of Commerce, it is abundantly clear that the process was initiated after the US dairy and medical devices sectors lobbied against India’s so-called trade barriers affecting their exports. If the statement of the US commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, is any indication, the final trigger could have come when India announced ‘stringent e-commerce rules’ that negatively affected two of the giant US companies – Amazon and Walmart-owned Flipkart. Continue reading GSP: Altering Preferential Status is ‘Significant’ or ‘Insignificant’?

“Manchester of the East” Gets New Textile Policy

GDJASUJA

First the ritual statement: The Textiles industry is the second most important economic activity in terms of employment generation after agriculture. It contributes 15% to the country’s total export earnings and has a 7% share in the total industrial output. Gujarat is the largest producer of Manmade Fibre, Synthetic Fabric and Denim. The state contributes about 12% to the country’s total textile exports. Gujarat contributes 35% to India’s total cotton production and 50% to the total manmade fibre production. Gujarat accounts for around 30% of India’s fabric production coming from the mill sector. Gujarat, with more than 30 sanctioned textile parks, ranks second highest among all the states. Moreover, Gujarat accounts for about 40% of the total MMF fabric production and about 25% of the country’s total output of technical textiles. In view of these facts, the government – both at central and state levels – must consider measures to support the industry which provides livelihood to millions of people.

“Smart Leuco­Indigo”: Electricity Instead Of Chemicals

Smart-Indigo™: High sustainability; Reduced health hazards; Savings in wastewater treatment and energy; Better colour consistency and performance; More ecological and economical; Easy to handle and more efficient

During one year over 15 billion meters of denim fabric are produced. Most of the production takes place in countries like China (52%), India & Pakistan (15%), Mexico & Brazil (13%), Europe & Turkey & Middle East (7%), USA & Canada (4%), rest of the world (9%).

The demand for denim continues to grow, with each of us already owning four or more denim fashion items. 66’000 tons of indigo powder is needed to produce 15 billion meters of denim fabrics to different shades of blue. The famous blue indigo is a powder which needs hazardous chemicals to make it water soluble for the dyeing process.

After dyeing, tons of wastewater containing these chemicals is discharged into the environment often without treatment. The excessive damages caused by those chemicals and heavy metals, like cadmium, chromium, mercury, lead, and copper are harmful to humans, animals and the environment.

Furthermore chemicals left on the denim fabrics after industrial washing can still effect our skin. Imagine wearing denims which are contaminated with chemicals! The denim dyeing process is one of the major pollution problems within the textile industry.

Time for a change.

Smart­Indigo™ will resolve these issues. This Swiss invention which utilises a 100­year­old discovery (A. Brochet, 1917) becomes reality. Tons of leuco­indigo can be produced without chemicals.

Smart-Indigo™: Because It Makes A Difference

“Smart Leuco­Indigo” is produced in an electrochemical process consuming considerably fewer resources than existing methods. Using only indigo pigment, caustic soda, water and electricity. This technology is the most environmentally friendly process to dye denim. Smart­Indigo™ is a global innovation and will markedly reduce the ecological footprint.

Behind this technology are experienced specialists in the dyeing and finishing industry. Located in Switzerland, represented globally, with established and innovative products selling all over the world. Time to market for this development, replacing chemicals with electricity was 5 years in the making. Two years longer than originally planned “-Nothing good comes easy- kept us awake more than once through desperate nights.” Mr. Herbert Guebeli, managing director says. This resulting clean technology now speaks for itself. It makes a difference.

Smart-Indigo™

Smart-Indigo™ stands for an industrially proven technology, which will make a difference by bringing a revolutionary change to the global denim dyeing industry. Combining benefits for the environment, the people and the producers of denim items.

Makes more from less

This revolutionary leuco-indigo process opens up a whole new range of opportunities.

  • Electricity instead of chemicals
  • High sustainability
  • More ecological and economical
  • Reduced health hazards
  • Better colour consistency and performance
  • Savings in wastewater treatment and energy
  • Easy to handle and more efficient
