Elena Lai, ETSA: “Our industry is the key to providing sustainable solutions and eco-friendly best practice”
Frankfurt am Main, 4 August 2021. How can the major sustainability challenges in the textile industry be met? The textile services industry, whose business model has always been based on durability and re-use, has an important role to play here as ambassador. In the run-up to Texcare International, Elena Lai, Secretary General European Textile Services Association (ETSA), talks about these challenges and her expectations for Texcare International from 27 November to 1 December 2021.
Low lint for cleaner results
In the textile-care business the filtering of waste water performs major tasks. In the first place it removes foreign bodies from the liquor which, when re-using water flows, would be deposited on the goods. Since these undesired deposits always contain a larger proportion of lint, the industry is committed to minimising the particle discharge which comes in its own area of responsibility. This is successfully attained by a harmonisation of all components involved in the washing process. Texcare International will be showcasing the latest developments in this field, featuring new analysis methods, process guidelines and specialist filters.
Professional textile care plays a key role in textile hygiene
Throughout the world, the corona pandemic has generated a completely new awareness of the need for improved hygiene, a subject that has become a driving force for innovation in many sectors. In the run-up to Texcare International, Dr Timo Hammer discusses the significance of the subject for the professional textile-care sector. Dr Hammer is Managing Director of both the Hohenstein Laboratories and the German Certification Association for Professional Textile Services, which awards the RAL 992 seal of quality.
