SDC 2015 Conference Brochure - 10 Feb_Page_4Conference Theme : Innovations for Sustainable Textile Production …. Connecting the Dots !

There have been many conferences, both in India as well as globally, which speak about the latest technical and ecological trends in dyestuffs and chemicals for better textile processing. However, as elucidated in the above background note, the processing machinery and the effluent treatment systems are equally vital components, and yet strangely often-ignored elements thus far.

This Conference aims to be the first-ever in India bringing on board cleaner and greener processing solutions from both machinery and chemicals/dyestuffs in a synchronous fashion. Bringing these two crucial links in the supply chain, namely chemicals and machinery, will surely go a long way in bridging the knowledge gap in the processing sector, and also provide for deliberations leading to more comprehensive solutions. It is envisaged to have speakers of global repute and content of contemporary relevance in adherence to the core theme of cleaner and greener processing technologies.

The involvement of the entire textile processing supply and value-chain, as also the keen participation of leading global brands potentially makes this event a not-to-be-missed one.
