The mission of Turkish denim mill Bossa is striving for zero water in their production process. In fact, this process is named Saveblue: Towards Zero Water. The company will be at Denim Première Vision on December 5th and 6th, in the heart of the trendy Shoreditch district, London.
A report by Cukurova University showed that conventional and water-saving dyeing (the Saveblue concept) were conducted under same conditions on the same warp dyeing machine at Bossa. The process times of both methods were found to be close to each other. After dyeing, it was determined that the penetration levels of the dye to the yarn. Therefore, the dyeing efficiency were very close to each other for both processes. Moreover, there was no difference in the fastness regarding washing, water, sweat values of fabrics woven from the dyed yarns.
In Saveblue concept, unlike conventional dyeing, caustic is not used, a positive approach in terms of environmental pollution. As a result, with this concept used in the warp dyeing, it was observed that 85% water saving was achieved in proportion to conventional dyeing.
