The use of chemicals in the textile industry and the pressure it puts on our fresh water reserves pose significant problems. FeyeCon has solved these problems with its game changing CO₂ technology. Our processes not only uses less or no chemicals or water, they also consume less energy and are faster, which dramatically reduces production costs.
Our most revolutionary achievement is our waterless textile dyeing process. Skeptics said it could not be done, but we have proven the contrary. With the help of launching partner Nike, our joint venture DyeCoo has successfully implemented the first water free dyeing process for polyester, steadily making the dyeing business a clean business. We are currently investigating water free processes for cotton, leather and other fibers like paper.
In conventional dry cleaning processes harsh chemicals are used that are harmful for the environment and linked to serious health problems. Conventional wet cleaning consumes vast quantities of potable water. By using pressurized CO₂ the same cleaning results can be achieved but without toxic chemicals or the use of water. CO₂ has the unique ability to deactivate bacteria & contaminants and remove heavy oil-based soils, leaving virtually no secondary waste. These environmental and performance benefits translate into direct economic savings, including longer garment lifetime and lower utility consumption. Our joint venture CO2Nexus is working on commercializing these processes.
