Alchemie explained the unveiling of the demonstration and production hub in Taiwan comes after a decade of technology development and it sees it as a major step forward in Alchemie’s mission to eradicate pollution from textile dyeing and finishing processes.

The brand-new Taiwan facility focuses on polyester woven fabrics is said to serve as a pivotal step in Alchemie’s 2024 roadmap, which includes the development of in-market production solutions for cotton woven and knits, as well as polyester with elastane.

Alchemie’s Endeavour low carbon digital dyeing production is described as an end-to-end process solution. It goes from virgin fabric intake to fully fixed and softened fabric colouration output and aims to ensure seamless digital dyeing to deliver high-quality results at every stage of production.

The company’s founder and CEO Dr Alan Hudd said of the launch: “As the world increasingly prioritises environmental conservation, energy efficiency and carbon reduction, there’s a growing demand for low carbon dyeing technology.”

He believes that in light of the global fashion industry’s “staggering” contribution of 2.1bn metric tons of carbon emissions, equating to over 3% of global emissions, there is an urgent need for action.

Hudd added: “With the opening of our new production and demonstration hub in Taiwan, we are poised to forge partnerships with leading brands and textile players to unlock greater business opportunities and sustainability. These partnerships are not only about enhancing return on investment but also about driving tangible environmental benefits”.

Alchemie’s low carbon Endeavour dyeing process is said to deliver significant sustainability benefits compared to traditional dyeing processes. It facilitates the transition from wet dyeing to dry processing for a substantial reduction of up to 85% in carbon emissions and a decrease in waste water of up to 95%.

The company pointed out that the textile industry carries a considerable environmental burden. It suggests that without intervention, projections indicate that emissions could soar to 2.5 gigatons by 2050 under current practices, posing a grave threat to climate stability.

Alchemie added that, as the world’s second-largest producer of industrial waste water discharge, the textile sector directly impacts millions of individuals worldwide. This underscores the urgent need for sustainable practices and regulatory measures within the industry.

At the core of Alchemie’s dry dyeing technology lies its patented digitally controlled piezoelectric nozzle, providing unparalleled precision: it achieves 100-micro registration of 1.2bn drops per linear meter of dyed fabric, ensuring the highest level of accuracy.

In February Alchemie unveiled its Discovery lab system to provide industry professionals with a hands-on experience of Alchemie’s Endeavour digital dyeing process and promote sustainable textile dyeing.
