#ApparelManufacturing Questions answered:
Cold-pad batch dyeing
The traditional method of “reactive dyeing” is generally used to dye cotton, viscose, and other cellulosic fibers.
However, reactive dyeing requires huge amounts of salt, water and energy. The process is also quite inefficient - repeated rinses are required to remove the unfixed dye, increasing both water and energy use. Wastewater produced from reactive dyeing contains high levels of both salt and dye, which is difficult to treat.
Cold pad batch dyeing (CPB) is an alternative method of reactive dyeing that uses less resources, which makes it much more environmentally friendly and sustainable. The process reduces the use of salt, water, energy, dyestuff, chemical and thus significantly reduces the chemical concentration of effluent.
