Spanish manufacturing company Jeanologia has developed a tool for measuring the environmental impact of the textile industry. Titled EIM, the Environmental Impact Measuring software aims to assess the impact of companies such as laundries and garment finishers and help them adopt more sustainable processes.


The company wants to help reduce industry-wide water and chemical usage by 85% - Jeanologia


Brands such as M&S, Tommy Hilfiger and H&M have already started using the software, which can help reduce water and chemical consumption in factories.

As part of this effort, Jeanologia plans to reduce water and chemical consumption in the textile industry by 85% over the next five years. This will be achieved by using the world’s first Laundry 5 Zero – a washing system that combines laser, ozone, ‘eflow’ and H2 Zero technologies to create clothing with zero discharge, zero manual scraping and zero bleach.

In 2017, Jeanologia’s technologies have helped save nearly 8 million cubic metres of water, thanks to the use of its laser, ozone and ‘eflow’ technologies in the 60 countries where Jeanologia operates, the company announced in December. But the business promises to save more than just water.

“We work every day to make the textile industry fully sustainable. To do this, we join forces with major brands and suppliers to help them achieve zero pollution, eliminate harmful emissions and waste, and drastically reduce the consumption of water, chemicals and energy in garment finishing processes,” said Enrique Silla, executive director of Jeanologia.

Founded in 1993, Jeanologia has currently contracts in five continents and generates the majority of its revenue (90%) from the export of specialised machines.
