Green is the new black
Green definitely is the new black in the textile and clothing industries, where sustainability has gained a firm foothold. Within these manufacturing processes, numerous possibilities for green production exist. These will be showcased at Texprocess 2015, taking place from May 4 to 7 in Frankfurt, Germany.
The trade fair will also offer some lectures that will give special attention to the subject of sustainable production. Under the label Blue Competence of the Association of German Mechanical and Plant Engineering, some exhibitors will present special resource-saving product families.
It promises to be a jam-packed show. To date more than 95 percent of the exhibition space occupied by the previous show has already been sold. The fair organiser, Messe Frankfurt, states that it is looking forward to a very well-booked third edition.
“Clearly the market leaders find the concept of Texprocess compelling,” says Olaf Schmidt, vice president of textiles and textile technologies. “At this point in time, two years ago, we had sold only 70 percent of the space taken by the previous event.”
The registration level for Texprocess is stable, or increasing, in all product segments. More exhibitors are expected in the textile machinery; stitching, joining and fastening technology; automation technology; and textile finishing segments.
There have also been positive developments in the fields of cutting-room and automation technology and product processing and finishing.
