AMSTERDAM – The ZDHC Group is expanding the scope of its work to cover fibre production by attempting to account for the environmental impact of fibres. The not-for-profit said its initial focus is on the fibre groups viscose and modal. To this end, it has produced a new set of guidelines which – it claims – make “a significant contribution to the industry by giving brands and manufacturing facilities producing man-made cellulosic fibres (MMCF) an aligned approach for emissions control. They also offer an aligned approach for the recovery of sulphur compounds, part of the inputs, as well as by-products generated during the production process.”
The ZDHC says its new guidelines will offer suppliers producing MMCF unified criteria for measuring output indicators like wastewater, sludge, air emissions and other process-related parameters.
