Few industries are responsible for more environmental issues than the fashion industry. According to the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA), 17 million tons of textile waste was generated in 2018, only a small percentage of which was recycled. Recent research estimates that the manufacturing, processing, and shipping of clothing produces more than 1.2 billion tons of carbon dioxide each year, and that number is expected to grow to nearly 3 trillion by 2030.
At Claros Technologies, we help companies safely reintroduce their wastewater back into the environment by capturing and detoxifying harmful pollutants. In our experience, we’ve found that prioritizing sustainability at a manufacturing facility requires a combination of environmentally conscious resources and production practices.
