Sustainability: Three Ways Jeanologia Improves Denim Production

Sustainability: Three Ways Jeanologia Improves Denim Production

Saturday, December 13 2014

Jeanologia is the world leader in sustainable and efficient finishing technologies for textile, coding, packaging and other industrial applications. It is their belief that denim manufacturers can be efficient and environmentally friendly while also making a profit.

This February, Sourcing at MAGIC partnered with Jeanologia to explore the advancements in denim. To continue the conversation, we sat down with  Jeanologia’s Alex Penades, marketing manager, and Carmen Silla, head of communications, so they could provide insight in regards to improving denim production efficiency. Here are three ways Jeanologia helps their partners and clients:

 

1. Measures Production’s Impact on Environment

Jeanology developed Environmental Impact Measurement (EIM) software to help manufacturers get a better grasp on sustainability. EIM is the first software developed to help brands and garment finishers to minimize their environmental impact. Professionals can continually evaluate their finishing processes, calculate water, measure energy and analyze chemical use and production impact on the health of workers in manufacturing facilities. Currently, brands such as H&M, Jack Jones and G-Star Raw are using this software in its productions.

2. Uses Automation to Achieve Sustainability

Automation of manufacturing processes is key to success in sustainability. Jeanologia’s technologies have enabled their users to automate their production methods, which are replicable and scalable, thus enabling productivity to merge with social responsibility. Their laser technology leads to endless development possibilities, limited only by the imagination of the designer of the range. You can learn more about their technology offerings here.

 

3. Embraces Technology to Minimize Use of Water and Chemicals

In order to maximize use of fabrics while reducing water and chemical usage, Jeanologia’s e-Flow acts as a carrier to transmit properties into any fabric or garment. A minimal quantity of water is needed with zero discharge. Air from the atmosphere is transformed into nanobubbles.  Products and water then naturally distribute themselves forming the nanobubble skin, making a perfectly homogeneous mix of water, products and air. The skin of the nanobubbles is responsible for transporting the properties of the product to the garment.

The Sourcing at MAGIC team commends Jeanologia for their continual focus on manufacturing innovation through social consciousness. If you missed it, watch our video interview with Alex Padia on YouTube:
