Dyeing and Finishing, a safe sustainable process? – SDC webinar

Course Description

The third webinar in the SDC’s new Sustainability Series, covering the fashion and textile supply chain, focused on the theme of ‘Dyeing and Finishing, a safe sustainable process?’  

The wet processing of textiles is viewed as being the most polluting part of the process with generalised figures of water usage and harmful chemicals being exploited to paint a bad picture. While this can’t be denied in some sectors there is much work being done within the industry from a company level and through third party accreditations which should make for a very positive session. 

Date Thursday October 27th 2022

Chairman – Ullhas Nimkar CCol FSDC, SDC President and Chairman of NimkarTek Technical Services Pvt. Ltd 

Rob Andrews CCol ASDC, Fabric and Product Compliance Manager, River Island
