Purpose and goal
By measuring relevant process data, different types of methods, with considerable variation in environmental impact, can be identified. If the recorded data is in line with expectations, it can be concluded that the fabric has undergone the correct method, otherwise the specified method has not been used and that the fabric may therefore have higher environmental impact and/or poorer quality. The aim of the project is to develop a method to verify the process method. There is great interest from producers and subcontractors regarding the implementation of this solution.
Expected results and effects
The project has investigated different methods to verify which process is used. With new technology, there are opportunities to demonstrate the selection of effective wet treatment steps for reducing resource use. A pilot has been carried out in China where the method has been verified in an existing plant. The method has shown great potential to be a solution regarding the validation of process methods.
Planned approach and implementation
The layout of the project generally worked well. Clear roles between both project partners and project participants made the work flow well. Having a clear picture of what we wanted to achieve in the project meant that we could focus the work on the right activities. The project had to be extended and it was mainly because hardware that was ready on the market did not meet the requirements specification that was developed at the beginning of the project. This meant that we had to find a suitable partner that we could work with. Which was more time-consuming than we anticipated.
