Sedo Engineering has aligned with Bluesign mission, aiming to reduce the environmental impact of the denim industry through its innovative Smart-Indigo technology. Smart-Indigo technology for indigo-denim dyeing makes the difference for the denim world by using an electrochemical process consuming considerable fewer resources than other traditional methods.

The bluesign system focuses on resources, people and the environment. With its holistic approach based on Input Stream Management, Bluesign reduces the impact on people and on the environment, for the responsible use of resources and provides the highest level of consumer safety. Verification are provided for products and articles in the supply chain such as chemical products, yarns, fabrics, accessories, etc.

The bluesign system partners are responsibly acting parties of the textile value chain. They range from chemical suppliers to manufacturers to brands and are committed to applying the bluesign System. As such, they are required to meet a high level of safety for both people and the environment, to use resources responsibly, and to continuously improve their environmental performance.

“From one Swiss organisation to another, we are proud to welcome Sedo Engineering on board as a new bluesign System Partner. Swiss companies are known for being global innovation leaders, and we hope this partnership rooted in innovation for the future, will motivate other Swiss textile organisations to recognise the value in joining the global Bluesign system. Together we are strengthening the global textile supply chain with our progressive and innovative work. We are thoroughly impressed by the Smart-Indigo technology, which will move forward the world of denim,” Katharina Mayer, country sales manager at Bluesign, said in a press release.

Using only indigo pigment, caustic soda, water and electricity, and through a fully automated process, the Smart-Indigo solution is the a highly sustainable way to dye denim.

The use of electricity instead of chemicals results in a process emitting considerably less CO2, consuming less energy and water. A revolutionary technology that protects the environment, creates safer and healthier workplaces, and offers economical production.
