By January 30, 2021 No Comments

Leading textile chemical firms have come together in a new alliance to develop a globally harmonized chemical ‘sustainability standard’ along with screening tools that cover hazards through to environmental and social impacts, according to Exotextile News.

The new Sustainable Chemistry for the Textile Industry (SCTI) aims to “drive transformational change, inspire action and lead the textile and leather industries through sustainable chemical solutions and new levels of resource productivity,” Rohit Aggarwal, the president of Huntsman Textile Effects and the SCTI’s inaugural chairman, told Ecotextile News.

Huntsman has been joined by founding members and fellow competitors Archroma, CHT Group, Kyung-In Synthetic Corporation (KISCO), Pulcra Chemicals, Rudolf Group and Tanatex some of whom were signatories to an open letter to the ZDHC back in May 2018 that raised concerns about its Gateway Chemical Module.
