Sun Chemical Bags Eco Passport By Oeko-Tex Certification

Sun Chemical has completed the Eco Passport by Oeko-Tex certification for a selected range of pigments and also achieved Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZHDC) Level 3 accreditation.

According to a Sun Chemical press release, Level 3 is the highest level possible by the ZDHC Foundation, an organisation committed to phasing out hazardous chemicals in the textile and apparel value chain.

The Eco Passport certification tests textile and leather chemicals for harmful substances and evaluates the ecological integrity of the chemical manufacturer.

The process includes a CAS number screening, an analytical laboratory text, a self-assessment and an on-site visit.

“Sun Chemical is the first pigment manufacturer world-wide to achieve the Eco Passport by Oeko-Tex with ZDHC Level 3 conformance,” Dr Christof Kujat at Sun Chemical said.

“This important certification process began in 2020, demonstrating Sun Chemical’s dedication to environmental progress and representing the first of many future certifications,” he added.

The certification further benefits the entire value chain by making strong advances to meet the requirements set by the EU Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles.
