Jeanologia To Open Demo And Training Center In Bangladesh

Jeanologia — a Spain-based developer of sustainable apparel finishing technologies — has announced it will open a demonstration and training center in Bangladesh to present its laser and ozone finishing technologies. The company hopes that its initiative will help improve working conditions in the country's jeans manufacturing industry, which currently employs more than three million people.

Jeanologia's technologies offer significant water, energy and chemical savings; and do not employ hazardous production techniques. Its textile laser reproduces sophisticated vintagewear effects and offers decreased production time and increased accuracy and reproducibility without the use of dangerous techniques such as sandblasting, manual scraping and potassium permanganate spraying. The eco G-2 washer utilizes atmospheric oxygen and ozone and is designed to achieve an authentic vintage look by apparel washing and color tearing. Its E-Soft technology converts atmospheric air into nano bubbles that produce a smoothing effect when they come in contact with the garments.

"After the successive tragedies that have taken place recently in Bangladesh, we wanted to double our efforts with more than three million people working in jeans manufacturing," said Jeanologia President Enrique Silla. "Jeanologia's philosophy is defined in one sentence: First our people then our planet and it is recorded in our DNA. We are aware that we must all do our part and only with technology and training we will be able to eradicate these situations."

The center is scheduled to open in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in September 2013.
