Matex cares immensely for the environment and is dedicated to assisting brands, retailers and industry partners to implement sustainable textile production that meets quality and eco-requirements making efficient use of our limited resources.

Matex as an ETAD member and Bluesign® system partner is committed to the Zero Discharge of Hazardous

Chemicals (ZDHC) to define and continue to work out Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL) for the apparel and footwear industry.

This latest innovation builds on its polyfunctional dyestuff range “Megafix® RE” cotton/reactive which enables fabric and garment dyers to conduct low temp 40-degree dyeing. This range similarly targeted energy saving and eco-friendly conscious customers.

Megapro ECO® uses existing dyeing equipment, it significantly helps to reduce water, energy, and time-related cost. Importantly with the aim to meet ever stringent environmental regulations like TDS (total dissolved solids), COD (chemical oxygen demand), BOD (biological oxygen demand) and color requirement levels from the wastewater effluent in accordance to ZDHC guidelines, enabling easier treatment and reducing overall effluent cost. Said the release.

Other benefits of adopting a no salt process can include but not limited to savings –

  • On buying truck-loads/transportation of salt
  • For loading/unloading i.e. labor cost related to salt
  • On storage spaces, which can be best utilized for other better economic returns
  • A modern plant setup.
