Officina+39: Aqualess Mission – on a mission to reduce the use of water
Innovative technology by Officina+39 significantly reduces water consumption in denim and garment washing.
An Italy-based reality with a thirty-year experience on research and chemical application in the textile sector, Officina+39 brings to the table its latest innovation: the Aqualess Mission. It features three products for one innovative process suitable for conventional machines:
Remover BC, a laser booster
This special compound increases laser effect on indigo or dischargeable dyestuff, saving time and energy for a swifter production. Due to the speedy process it also prevents fabric tearing whilst focusing on giving a used look.
Aqualess Aged, a waterless compound to give denim abrasion effects
Ideal to give abrasion effects on denim, this waterless treatment has a reduced impact on the environment and can be applied in combination with Oz-One powder both on black and indigo denim.
OZ-One Powder, an advanced product to give garments a bleached yet eco-friendly treatment, for a worn and distressed look.
The sustainable (chlorine and potassium permanganate free) way to give denim that distressed and worn look, with no need of water or high temperatures.
When it comes to the whole process, traditional systems use about 52 liters of water for a pair of pants, while Officina+39’s cutting-edge technology employs only 12.5 liters, resulting in Aqualess Mission reducing 75 per cent of the water use in denim and garment laundry processes.
Aqualess Mission meets the needs of the industry to reduce water in manufacturing operations, pledging to meet UN’s 2030 SDG 6 of clean water and sanitation, and by doing so protects the planet and its resources.
