Piloting A Ground-Breaking Solution To Clean Wastewater
Wastewater treatment poses a significant challenge to manufacturers and fashion brands as well as an attractive opportunity for innovation. Presented with the game-changing wastewater treatment system developed by Scaling Programme start-up SeaChange Technologies, Fashion for Good initiated a pilot project to assess the feasibility of the solution at scale. With the support of partners Arvind Limited, BESTSELLER, C&A and PVH Corp., the pilot provides encouraging results for future implementation of the technology in the supply chain.

“Fashion for Good is committed to finding and supporting the most disruptive technologies, such as SeaChange Technologies, to solve key issues in the fashion value chain. SeaChange has made substantial progress in just over two years as a Scaling Programme participant, culminating in this pilot, which provides them the momentum needed to further scale their technology.” Katrin Ley, Managing Director Fashion for Good.

Pilot set-up

Seeking new solutions to the environmental impact and high costs associated with wastewater treatment, Fashion for Good corporate partners Arvind Limited, BESTSELLER, C&A and PVH Corp., provided business support, development funding and expertise to this pioneering pilot project. As a global leader in apparel manufacturing and with a focus on textiles, advanced materials, and environmental solutions, Arvind Limited provided access to their Effluent Treatment Plant near Gujarat, India, one the world’s largest textile manufacturing operations, to conduct a field evaluation. The SeaChange system was implemented over a period of three months to test and evaluate the feasibility of widescale implementation of the system.
