Compounding World: October 2013
Noble Biomaterials, the global leader in bacterial management solutions and manufacturer of X-STATIC® and X-STATIC®XT2 technologies, announces it has achieved bluesign® system partnership after undergoing stringent bluesign® screening.
The bluesign® system partnership will assure manufacturers, retailers and consumers that the production of X-STATIC® and XT2 fibers is environmentally friendly and committed to the contemporary sustainable textile requirements set forth by the bluesign® system.
The independent bluesign® system follows a unique approach to minimize environmental impact throughout the production process. Instead of testing finished products, the bluesign® system is applied where the production begins. On-site visits of independent experts certify that companies' production processes meet five necessary requirements: resource productivity, air emission, occupational health and safety, water emission and consumer safety. As bluesign® technologies performs regular audits, system partners regularly report their progress and must meet improvement goals to maintain their status.
"Consumers today expect athletic apparel to deliver maximum performance while ensuring they're made using eco-friendly materials," said Jeff Keane, CEO, Noble Biomaterials. "Our bluesign® system partner status allows us to work with brands that require anti-odor technologies that are environmentally sustainable."
