How to define sustainability?
We are entering the phase to estimate sustainable initiatives by labeling its CO2e and Higg MSI Index.
THE HIGG PRODUCT MODULE ASSESSES
5 ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS
Global warming is a gradual
increase in the earth’s
due to the greenhouse
effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, CFCs, and other pollutants.
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 .
A means to measure
damages of water use
for three areas : human
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
The way to fully
integrate and utilize
chemistry impacts and
Eco - toxicity results.
Axroma engags with Higg Materials Sustainability Index to
identify five environmental impacts by disclosing available
manufacturing carbon footprint.
Below is MSI scores of Mackintosh Monochrome Series
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.
⦁ AXROMA COMPLETE ISO
14067:2018 IN OUTDOOR
⦁ SGS VERIFICATION ON
MONOCHROME SERIES IS
ISSUED IN JUNE, 2022.
GHG AND CO2E
⦁ GHG (green house gas) emissions includes 7
main chemicals including
⦁ 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
⦁ Average 80% of emission comes from materials.
20% comes from manufacturing.
THE CHARACTERISTICS OF POLYPROPYLENE
Olefin by its physical & chemical nature is an environmental synthetic fabric.
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.
Olefin by its physical & chemical nature is UV & fade resist due to being solution dyed.
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.
Olefin by its physical & chemical nature is easy clean and stain release.
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.
Olefin by its physical & chemical nature resists growth of bacterial and mildew.
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.
Olefin by its physical & chemical nature wicks moisture and quick dry easily.
Polypropylene naturally repels water and the drying speed is 11.1%/min, which is the fastest among different synthetic fibers.
Olefin by its physical & chemical nature exploit performances from energy saving solution dyed manufacturing.
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.
Olefin is hydrophobia combined with lipophilia, like the side effect of diamond's surface perfection.
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.
