Textiles – Tailoring a better industry

Higher production costs, demand for quality textiles, and environmental legislation present challenges for the textile industry. Novozymes helps customers improve operations and stay ahead of the market by providing revolutionary products and services.



​In 2011 the Chinese government will be introducing new laws limiting the consumption of fresh water to 100 tons per ton of cotton knitwear produced. Similar restrictions are being introduced around the world, and manufacturers must find ways to adapt. Enzymes offer not only greener production methods but also more economically efficient and effective alternatives to traditional processes.
