Advance Denim opens eco-friendly unit in Vietnam


Advance Denim’s newest production facility in Vietnam is eco-friendly, reports Sourcing Journal. The Chinese denim manufacturer not only wants to supply customers the most innovative denim styles in Vietnam but also introduce sustainable innovations.

For instance Big Box dyeing saves up to 95 per cent of the water used in conventional dyeing while using traditional liquid indigo. It is the first mill in Vietnam to use Archroma’s aniline-free indigo for a cleaner, safer indigo dye without using the harmful carcinogenic chemical.

Advance Denim then added BioBlue indigo to its dye ranges in Vietnam, creating a clean indigo that does not produce environmentally harmful toxic waste. BioBlue indigo also creates a safer work environment by eliminating the highly flammable and unstable chemical sodium hydrosulfite from the workplace.

The factory is located in a resort town Nha Trang. Advance Denim felt the responsibility to protect the natural environment and installed an innovative reverse osmosis water purification system designed to effectively remove residual indigo and harmful impurities. This process creates water that is almost 50 per cent cleaner than the national standard for chemical oxygen demand. This also enables the facility to recycle close to 40 per cent of the water used in its manufacturing process.
