Denmark based Novozymes, a world leader in biological solutions for wet processing of textiles, has launched “BioPrep Fusion - Sustainable Cotton Knit Pre-treatment Process” in Bangladesh. 

Organized by the Embassy of Denmark in Bangladesh and Novozymes A/S, Ambassador of Denmark to Bangladesh Winnie Estrup Petersen, and Business Unit Director of Technical Industries EMA – AP at Novozymes A/S Ethel Fanny Laursen hosted the event on Tuesday at Dhaka’s Edge Gallery, said a press release. 

Inaugurating the event, Ambassador Petersen said: “Bangladesh is a country of great vision and abilities. The (textile) industry must be congratulated for having 7 out of world’s top 10 state-of-the-art green factories.”

“Although the RMG sector still faces serious challenges in terms of sustainability, it is encouraging to see Danish companies like Novozymes bring innovative and sustainable solutions to the industry in Bangladesh,” she added.

Speaking at the event, Laursen said: “Novozymes is proud to contribute to sustainable production in Bangladesh. The innovation enables sustainable and increased production, which is highly necessary for the Bangladesh garment industry to reach its $50 billion export target by 2021.” 

Industry experts, buyers, and other stakeholders partcipated in a panel discussion on sustainable cotton knit pre-treatment, focusing on the challenges the Bangladesh textile industry faces. 

As a part of the panel discussion, Managing Director of Giant Group and Senior Vice President of BGMEA Faruque Hassan highlighted that sustainability in textile processing is very expensive, and the full support of buyers is a major consideration for producers. 

BioPrep Fusion Concept, a proven innovation of Novozymes, can address these challenges. It allows textile mills handling knit processing to increase productivity, while saving costs with reliable enzymatic scouring. 

Moreover, it also reduces the producer’s environmental footprint by saving 67% water, 50%  energy, and 50% time required for knit pre-treatment processing.
