Each year on 22nd March, people all over the world observe World Water Day to raise awareness about the crucial role of water in our lives. The goal is to highlight the challenges we face in managing our water resources sustainably and encourage everyone to act towards ensuring that we do not exhaust this vital resource.
Archroma has long advocated innovation and partnership to prevent unwanted substances from entering the supply chain. As a global, diversified provider of specialty chemicals serving the branded and performance textiles, packaging and paper, and coatings, adhesives and sealants markets, we have long made water conservation and contamination protection a priority of our research and innovation efforts.
Today, many of the world’s best brands are taking great strides to conserve and protect water resources as consumers, investors and regulators now expect apparel and textile brands and retailers to set and meet bold sustainability targets.
We are proud that we can equip our stakeholders with the right tools and solutions to meet this need.
The Archroma ONE WAY Impact Calculator is a process simulation & calculation tool designed and used by our textile processing experts to provide our customers and partners with an accurate estimate of the process costs, resource utilization, effluent discharge quality, and CO2 emissions of an existing production process and of potential alternative solution. And that of course include water consumption.
The Productivity Improvement Plan (PIP/SIP) draws on all of our textile application and technical expertise, and our insights into regulatory and legislative developments. We provide access to the best available technologies that help brands and mills optimize their existing plant operations, equipment and personnel, and enhance sustainability and profitability in lockstep.
