摇篮到摇篮Design distinguishes between two types of products: those for consumption (e.g. cleaning agents, cosmetics) that safely enter biological systems, and products for service (e.g. TV sets, cars) that safely enter technical systems to be apart of new future product generations. Certain dyes from DyStar were assessed by EPEA to ensure they safely end up in biological systems. Regarding dyes, not only the application scenario of textiles designed for technical cycles has to be taken into account, but also their contribution to waste water during a dyeing process.
