Dow applies business decision processes to complete projects that increase business value and are better for ecosystems.
ECOFAST™ Pure Sustainable Textile Treatment
“Dow’s innovation portfolio includes its ECOFAST™ Pure Sustainable Textile Treatment technology which enables existing textile mills to retrofit their process and dye cotton using 50% less water, 90% less chemicals including dyes and 40% less energy, resulting in ~60% lower carbon emissions when compared to current cotton dying processes through cationic cotton chemistry treatment.”
“After 10-years of collaboration with The Nature Conservancy (TNC), Dow is now collaborating with the Peabiru Institute and TNC to analyze the biodiversity within Dow’s preserved native Amazon forests and establish a local cooperative that would sustainably harvest seeds, fruits and other renewable resources – called bioactives through Project Yba.”
