How to define sustainability?

We are entering the phase to estimate sustainable initiatives by  labeling its CO2e and Higg MSI Index.

5 ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS

GLOBAL WARMING

Global warming is a gradual

increase in the earth’s

temperature generally

due to the greenhouse

effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, CFCs, and other pollutants.

EUTROPHICATION

Excessive richness of nutrients in a lake or other body of water, frequently due to runoff from the land, which causes a dense growth of plant life and death of animal life from lack of oxygen .

WATER SCARCITY

A means to measure
potential environmental
damages of water use
for three areas : human
health, ecosystem
quality, and resources .

The consumption of a
resource faster than it
can be replenished .
This impact area model
is based on available
fossil fuel reserves
and the technology
available to access
those reserves.

CARBON FOOTPRINT VERFICATION

According to the data from the Carbon Footprint Information Network, compared with new materials, recycled  materials can reduce carbon emissions by 60~70%, and can also replace the use of petrochemical resources.

GHG AND CO2E

⦁ GHG (green house gas) emissions includes 7  

   main chemicals including

   CO2/CH4/N2O/SF6/NF3/FCEs/PFCs.

 

⦁ CO2e, a metric measure used to compare the

   emissions from various greenhouse gases on

   the basis of their GWP.

Note: Emissions of 1 million metric tons of methane is

equivalent to emissions of 25 million metric tons of carbon

dioxide.

⦁ Average 80% of emission comes from materials.

   20% comes from manufacturing.

Why Olefin?
THE CHARACTERISTICS OF POLYPROPYLENE

PROPERTIES
1.

Olefin by its physical & chemical nature is an environmental synthetic fabric.

Why Olefin1130-26.png

Polypropylene is a linear hydrocarbon polymer compound, no benzene ring in the chemical formula, is eventually decomposed to water and carbon dioxide (CO2), vapor no harmful and hazardous component during degradation and landfill incineration.

2.

Olefin by its physical & chemical nature is UV & fade resist due to being solution dyed.

Why Olefin1130-27.png

Polypropylene is a crystal constituent and an inert chemical substance, resistant to acid and alkali solvent limits its ability to be dyed and printed. Olefin fabric must be solution-dyed that embody enduring colorfastness to sunlight.

PROPERTIES
3.

Olefin by its physical & chemical nature is easy clean and stain release.

Why Olefin1130-28.png

Polypropylene is poreless so it is difficult for dirt and stains to adhere to and can be easily cleaned by washing and hosing without detergent and leaves no marks. For stubborn stains, it is bleach cleanable without striping colors off.

4.

Olefin by its physical & chemical nature resists growth of bacterial and mildew.

Why Olefin1207-29.png

Polypropylene does not absorb moisture. The water content is only 0.05%, which provides minimum humidity for mildew to grow on it and inhibit bacteria that cause odor.

PROPERTIES
5.

Olefin by its physical & chemical nature wicks moisture and quick dry easily.

Why Olefin1207-30.png

Polypropylene naturally repels water and the drying speed is 11.1%/min, which is the fastest among different synthetic fibers.

6.

Olefin by its physical & chemical nature exploit performances from energy saving solution dyed manufacturing.

Why Olefin1210-31.png

Polypropylene melts at low temperature so yarn extrusion consumes less energy to heat up. Its low melting point also drives the addictive application to enable potential performances that waterless solution dyed process can deliver.

PROPERTIES
7.

Olefin is hydrophobia combined with lipophilia, like the side effect of diamond's surface perfection.

Why Olefin0503-32.png

Polypropylene is a crystal constituent polymer compound. Naturally occurring diamond is found in the crystalline form with a purely cubic orientation of bonded carbon atoms. As a class of amorphous carbon material, polypropylene displays the typical oleophilic properties, similarly, diamond is also lipophilic, meaning grease and oil readily collect on its surface but also easy to polish, and remove oil traces and return its clean condition.
