Developer of sustainable technologies Jeanologia launched Colorbox, a new faster and more efficient piece dyeing process.

Compared to traditional garment dyeing, using Colorbox results in a 60% reduction in water and chemicals, a 45% reduction in energy and a 76% reduction in salt, all s adding to a lower environmental impact measurement score.

According to Jeanologia, the main cost of garment dyeing is its reproducibility, and Colorbox achieves perfect reproducibility for high quality products with reduced production times and creates an eco-efficient model in the process. The new technology offers the possibility of dyeing the product at any time during the manufacturing process and allows a rapid response to customer requests.

“This allows us to reduce decision-making times for product color, reducing lead times between two weeks and 48 hours compared to the 18 weeks required in traditional processes,” said Jeanologia CEO Enrique Silla.

Colorbox builds on Jeanologia’s existing goal of saving water. In 2021, Jeanologia increased the amount of water saved to be comparable to the annual water consumption of 1 million people. Jeanologia has also measured how its technology contributes to reducing emissions. In 2021, the company saved 83.8 million kilograms of carbon emissions, the amount captured by a 100,000 acre area and comparable to what would be removed by 5 million trees. He continues to work towards his MissionZero, or the goal of eliminating 100% of the rejects generated in the manufacturing and finishing processes of jeans.

In addition to Colorbox, Jeanologia uses technologies such as laser, G2 ozone, e-Flow, Smart Boxes and H2Zero to revolutionize the apparel and textile industries and transform them into more sustainable and environmentally friendly industries. the environment. The company states that more than 35% of the jeans produced worldwide each year use Jeanologia technologies.
