 Project objective

The textile industry is a major contributor to global water consumption . In India alone, 1.6 billion litres of water are used daily in the textile industry. Given that only 2.5% of the Earth’s water is freshwater and only 0.3% is accessible to humans, this is clearly unsustainable and grossly wasteful. In addition, industrial manufacturing in the textile industry is responsible for 20% of all water pollution making it the number one polluter of clean water after agriculture. The dyeing process is the prime contributor to much of the water, time and energy consumption that takes place in the textile industry. On average, 60-80 litres of water are needed to dye 1kg of cotton and 80% of the total energy and 65% of the many environmentally hazardous chemicals produced in textile production are a result of the dyeing process. In addition, dyeing is also by far the most time-consuming process involved. Growing populations and consumer needs are demanding more efficient and faster production than ever. Our solution is an auxiliary technology, H2COLOR AUX. A revolutionary system developed by expert chemists that prevents hydrolysis in the dyeing process. This greatly reduces the amount of energy, chemicals and time required for dyeing textiles. A similar technology is used in our H2COLOR pigments which have superior properties than alternatives, while being less toxic and more environmentally sustainable. Upon commercialisation, we will save the world billions of litres of water per day, eliminate a globally leading polluter, increase textile production by 50%, and reduce costs for a multitude of industries. Customers of Ecofoot will have access to a highly-efficient, affordable, and easy-to-use dye-auxiliary product that saves 70% of the water, 80% of the energy, 50% of the process time, and 30-40% of the costs along the dyeing process. Customers using our product increase the sustainability of the textile industry and promote green environment technology.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "H2COLOR-AUX" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
