Smart Indigo – The demand for denim continues to grow. Yearly over 15 billion meters of denim fabric is produced with 66’000 plenty of indigo powder to make different reminder blue. The famous blue indigo may be a powder that needs hazardous chemicals to form it water-soluble for the dyeing process.
After dyeing, plenty of wastewater containing these chemicals is discharged into the environment. Often without treatment. The excessive damages caused by those chemicals and heavy metals, like cadmium, chromium, mercury, lead, and copper are harmful to humans, animals, and therefore the environment.
SmartIndigo™ by Sedo Engineering SA will resolve these issues. This Swiss invention which utilizes a 100yearold discovery (A. Brochet, 1917). Indigo is often produced with electricity rather than chemicals.
‘Smart Indigo’ is produced in an electrochemical process consuming considerably fewer resources than the prevailing method using only indigo pigment, sodium hydroxide, water, and electricity.
“This technology is the most environmentally friendly process to dye denim. SmartIndigo™ may be a global innovation and can markedly reduce the ecological footprint, said Herbert Guebeli.
Nothing good comes easy- kept us awake quite once through desperate nights. This resulting clean technology now speaks for itself and it makes a difference,” said Herbert Guebeli.
The smarter thanks to indigo
Smart-Indigo™ revolutionizes the dyeing process for denim. It exposes the economic production of Leuco-Indigo on the idea of electrochemical reduction for the primary time. This environmentally friendly process was evolved in Switzerland and developed technologically to marketability. Global innovation! The smarter thanks to indigo are trend-setting as well as for the entire denim industry.
Smart Indigo production on-site
‘Smart-Indigo™’ is produced by electrochemical processes consuming considerably fewer resources than existing methods. Using only indigo pigment, sodium hydroxide as well as water, and electricity.
In a fully automated process, the clean Leuco-Indigo is produced, metered, as well as fed on to the dye bath. The Smart-Indigo™ solution is that the most sustainable as well as thanks to dye denim.
The profitable thanks to indigo
Smart Indigo™ makes more from less. Using only indigo pigment, sodium hydroxide (NaOH), water, and electricity ‘Smart-Indigo™’ is produced in an electrochemical process requiring considerably fewer resources than previous process methods. during a fully automated process, the clean Leuco-Indigo is produced, metered, and fed on to the dye baths.
“The Smart-Indigo™ solution reduces wastewater treatment and transport costs and also contributes to efficiency and profitability,” Herbert Guebeli mentioned.
The easier thanks to indigo
Smart-Indigo™ Clean technology ‘Cleantech’ increases the competitiveness of dyeing factories as well as benefits health and environment. Sedo Engineering manufactures the technical equipment as well as for the electrochemical reduction process. They represent first-class Swiss quality offerings as well as possibilities for fully automated systems.
Herbert Guebeli highlighted that the modular system design as well as allows easy servicing. Smart-Indigo™ fundamentally simplifies processes. An investment in Smart-Indigo™ is an investment during a sustainable and economically successful future for dyeing companies to the advantages of all.
