You might think that yarn dyers can't possibly have a clean slate. But the opposite is true: sustainability colours TVU's philosophy. We do our utmost to protect the environment. We bear responsibility, for the future, our children and our environment. Only by conserving resources, can we draw on them tomorrow.
And when it comes to sustainability we don't just wind out the standard programme either. We pursue a policy of continuous improvement to reduce the high energy requirements for dyeing and to prevent environmental pollution. A policy that includes efficient processes and modern facilities.
Dyestuffs, chemicals and auxiliary agents.
Out of conviction we refrain from the use of hazardous agents that can build up and do not degrade naturally. It's our promise to you and upcoming generations.
Energy – generation and recovery.
We produce the heat we need in a particularly efficient wood chip-fired heating plant and 10 percent of our electricity needs are covered by photovoltaic plants.
Water, waste water and other waste.
We produce little waste water and waste because we use dyestuffs, chemicals and all other raw materials sparingly. We use process and rain water for dyeing.
Our team will be happy to explain how your yarn is dyed to the right shade in an eco-friendly manner. People matter to us. Talk to our sustainability expert, Mr Christ (email).
