Huntsman And Genencor Collaborate To Offer Sustainable Textile Solutions

Switzerland-based Huntsman Textile Effects — a manufacturer of chemicals and dyes for textile processing, and a division of Huntsman International LLC — and Palo Alto, Calif.-based Genencor International — a developer of eco-friendly enzyme technologies — are partnering to develop sustainable solutions for the textile industry.

“We are excited to have signed this agreement,” said Stephen Gray, vice president of research and technology, Huntsman Textile Effects. “We are constantly striving to develop new technology platforms that will improve fabric performance and reduce energy and water consumption for the textile industry. With Genencor, we have found a partner that shares that vision to address this global demand.”

“In our opinion, this joint effort can contribute greatly towards making the textile industry more sustainable,” said Glenn Nedwin, executive vice president technical enzymes, Genencor. “ Through this collaboration, we aim to reduce the use of harsh chemicals and high energy levels, thereby opening up new markets for biodegradable ingredients that require milder processing conditions.”

Huntsman and Genencor plan to launch a new product later this year.
