FOREWORD

Foreword to the ACIMIT Green Guide 2015 Attention paid to issues such as sustainability, safeguarding our environment and health is growing both in the realm of public opinion and with policy makers. Within this context, the textile and garments industry is considering adopting sustainable development as a business model that is more attentive to environmental issues. However, embarking on the road to sustainability as a means of promoting growth implies embracing innovation, both technologically and culturally. This process thus cannot forsake the use of technologies capable of supporting the industry’s manufacturers in the creation of sustainable products, while rendering their production processes more efficient. This is the reason why Italy’s textile machine manufacturers are promoting themselves as preferential partners in supplying sustainable technologies that make a rational use of resources, minimizing energy consumption and raw materials - in a word, becoming sustainable. ACIMIT’s “Sustainable Technologies” project supports the commitment of Italian textile machine manufacturers on issues related to sustainable innovation. In particular, the ACIMIT “Green Label” certifies the constant improvement of energy and environmental performances for the textile machinery it is affixed to, specifying each unit’s equivalent amount of carbon dioxide emissions (Carbon Footprint - CFP) produced during its operation. This Green Guide contains more detailed information on ACIMIT’s associated members who have adhered to the project, effectively becoming “Suppliers of Sustainable Technologies”.

ICE-AGENCY

The ICE Italian Trade Agency is the government organisation which promotes the internationalisation of Italian companies, in line with the strategies of the Ministry of Economic Development. ICE–Agency provides information, support and advice to Italian and foreign companies. In addition to its Rome headquarters, ICE operates worldwide from a large network of Trade Promotion Offices linked to Italian embassies and consulates and working closely with local authorities and businesses. ICE provides a wide range of services overseas helping Italian and foreign businesses to connect with each other: identification of possible business partners, bilateral trade meetings with Italian companies, trade delegation visits to Italy, official participation in local fairs and exhibitions, forums and seminars with Italian experts. With regard to the textile machinery industry, in order to consolidate and improve the trading conditions of Italian companies in the foreign markets, ICE-Agency has implemented promotional activities focused on the marketing of Italian textile production technology that best takes account of environmental protection and energy saving. The construction of environmentally friendly equipment is a valid response to the global demand for textile machinery, characterised by an increasing sensitivity and attention to environmental issues. Most textile companies see the use of technologies energy savings also as an opportunity to also bring down production costs and therefore become more competitive in the foreign markets. ICE-Agency, in collaboration with the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT), intends to stimulate and guide Italian manufacturers of textile machinery towards environmentally friendly technologies and reinforce the image of Italian firms which operate in this sector as companies with a strong inclination for innovation.

EDITORIAL The “Sustainable Technologies” project: the ACIMIT green label In an effort to promote growth, the textile industry is looking towards new production models and efficient processes from an energy standpoint, with a reduced environmental impact. The Italian textile machinery sector is working to provide technology solutions that place reduced consumption in energy, water and chemical products at the center of the production process, for a manufacturing cycle that is more responsible and mindful of consumption, while respecting the environment. Within this context, ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, has realised the “Sustainable Technologies” project, in cooperation with the engineering firm D’APPOLONIA (www.dappolonia.it), with the aim of developing and promoting some key issues for the textile industry. This initiative testifies the commitment of Italian textile machinery manufacturers to research and advanced solutions that respond to sustainability criteria. This commitment translates into environmentally efficient technology solutions that provide significant benefits to users, in terms of reduced production costs. The transparency of the technical information provided is the first step taken to make visible the attention placed by Italian machinery manufacturers on issues involving sustainability. At the centre of the Sustainable Technologies project is the ACIMIT green label, designed by ACIMIT and used by its members. ACIMIT associated companies adhering to this initiative can avail themselves of a descriptive label (named the ACIMIT green label) which demonstrates the efficiency of their machinery, complying with an "energy labeling" type approach.

What is the ACIMIT green label? The ACIMIT green label is a document that aims to identify the energy and environmental performances of textile machinery and make them easily recognisable and comprehensible, using a process designated by the manufacturer as an evaluation parameter. The green label is thus a self-certification of compliance by the machine manufacturer, who assumes the burden and the responsibility of revealing to third parties certain significant characteristics of the machinery. In the absence of an internationally recognised standard for the classification of energy and/or environmental performance levels for textile machinery, Italian machinery manufacturers are promoting an instrument whose goal is to demonstrate some key performance data for their machinery. This information can also be compared with competitors. Enhanced awareness of excellence in technology and sustainability is, in fact, an element that boosts the strength of the Italian textile machinery industry, which is in the front line in order to promote sustainable solutions. 6

EDITORIAL Specifically, the quantity of equivalent emissions of carbon dioxide (Carbon Footprint CFP) produced during the machine’s operation, is the parameter that has been chosen to provide an environmental efficiency value to the machinery being labeled. Italian textile machinery manufacturers who wish to use the ACIMIT green label must comply with the Sustainable Technologies project by adhering to and respecting a memorandum of understanding, as well as a rigorous compliance standard defined by ACIMIT. By underwriting and complying to this standard, Italian machinery manufacturers who use the ACIMIT green label formalise in writing their commitment to respect the procedures and tests defined by the implementation regulation deliberated by ACIMIT. The ACIMIT Supplier of Sustainable Technologies registered trademark is the symbol that identifies Italian textile machinery manufacturers who comply with the Sustainable Technologies project, and thus use of the ACIMIT green label. The “Green Certified� trademark is a new logo that has just been introduced, and it serves to identify labeled machinery.

The ACIMIT green label - a certified standard At ITMA ASIA + CITME 2012, ACIMIT introduced the certified version of this instrument. In fact, an international certification body, RINA, has validated the green label issuing process and the evaluations it contains. Based on a standardised and certified procedure, a third party verifies (for some manufacturers, drawn from those participating in the project every year) both the evaluation criteria and operating conditions of the machinery being assessed for the labeling process. Other trademark labels exist in the industrial machinery sector that assign sustainability compliances to manufacturers; in actual fact, these are simply self-referenced labels of an exclusively promotional nature. They fail to provide technical criteria (i.e. measurable values) that justify the attribution of the sustainability trademark. Above all, their claims are never verified by third parties. With this further evolutionary process, Italian manufacturers are able instead to provide potential customers machinery performance information that has been verified by an internationally recognized certification organisation.

D’APPOLONIA and RINA

ACIMIT’s green label, a way towards a sustainable future The textile machinery sector is not governed by specific standards or directives that force manufacturers to calculate, declare and provide measures to reduce their environmental footprint. It is our opinion that a complete legislation on this matter, that would define standard references and procedures for calculating the performances of such machinery, is an important but still long term objective. Moreover, a sudden duty of sustainability procedures implementation or compulsory limit compliance could even bring the risk of overcharging manufacturers with a completely new subject to take care of. In this framework, the great value of ACIMIT’s “Sustainable Technologies” project and of the Green Label, is to have built a structured and smooth path, for accompanying the textile machinery industry towards an increased sustainability awareness, the first beneficiary of which is the group of textile producers. A company that enters the “Sustainable Technologies” programme, in fact, commits itself to accomplishing, step by step, the milestones of the sustainability path, from the assessment of its machines performance to the reduction of their overall carbon footprint. Through the carbon footprint history reported on the Green Label, the customers of ACIMIT’s associates could check the improvement of textile machinery, year by year, and get a tangible evidence of the machine producers’ environmental advancements. Being directly related to energy and process material efficient use, such reduction of the environmental impact confirms also the will for a continuous challenge towards the decrease of the process costs the machine is designed for. The “Sustainable Technologies” project groups all the Italian textile machines manufacturers sensible on sustainability theme and characterized by a use of “Life Cycle Thinking” approach as a driver for development. These companies are aware of the meaning of sustainability and know the main instruments of LCA (Life Cycle Analysis) to assess the environmental performances of their products. When a company joins the “Sustainable Technologies” project, in fact, it has to accept the Memorandum of Understanding of ACIMIT, that formalizes the commitment of the companies to respect the principles of sustainability in the design and manufacturing of products for the textile industry. The company is then provided with an initial training, made by a group of experts from D’Appolonia. This phase is fundamental to make producers aware of concepts and parameters related to sustainability as, for example, LCA and Carbon Footprint. Once trained, the company is able to evaluate its machines from an environmental perspective, thanks to a user friendly Carbon Footprint calculator. At the end of this phase, the company has a term of reference on the current performances of its products, to be improved in the years, in a “challenge against itself”. The challenge is testified by the “carbon footprint reduction history” reported on the Green Label and will contribute to an overall reduction of the textile production costs. 8

D’APPOLONIA and RINA

Based on the ISO 140401 and 140442 standards, the Green Label summarizes the characteristic parameters of textile machines, in terms of energy consumption and environmental impact and, in particular, it provides the value of the Carbon Footprint, calculated on the basis of a reference process and of typical boundary conditions defined by the machine producer. “If You Cannot Measure It, You Cannot Improve It”1 : far from being a means to compare the performances of different products, the Green Label represents for companies the first step of a structured approach for decreasing the environmental load of their machines, giving them a reference and the possibility to evaluate the benefit of technical improvements. The culture associated to the Green Label will have a positive impact both on machinery producers and on textile manufacturers pushing the first to consider its products’ sustainability as priority and work to improve it and the second to understand the environmental impact of the machinery installed in its firm. Since 2012, the Green Label raised value thanks the certification of the issuing process by an international certification body as RINA (www.rina.org). The certification procedure, in which a third party give written assurance that the process is in compliance to the specified requirements has a double function: ACIMIT associates have, at their disposal, shared and standardised reference parameters for process development as well as a baseline from which to monitor any deviation and aim to improve the values of the parameters stated on the label. In relation to certification, RINA sampled the ACIMIT associates taking part in the project by undertaking a document review involving checking the ACIMIT rules and procedures for collecting, processing and filing data followed by an “on-site” audit to verify how the environmental parameters indicated on the label were calculated. Thanks to this certification, RINA gives written assurance that the process of issue of the “Green Label” meets the requirements established in the “Sustainable Technologies” rules. Future challenges will have to be addressed by ACIMIT and its associated companies: • to increase the number of companies involved in the “Sustainable Technologies” project, for generating a wider impact on the whole sector and gather a “domino effect”; • to extend the sustainable approach to the whole manufacturing lines and value chains, for increasing the global LCA impact of finished goods; • to acquire relevant trends and requirements from the market, oriented to anticipate expectations and performances. Thanks to the “Sustainable Technologies” project and to the Green Label, ACIMIT broke the ice towards an increased sustainability of textile manufacturing system: the definition of universal standards, of a worldwide recognized “Energetic Labeling” is still a long term and very challenging objective but, today, the Green Label Companies have taken the first step to tackle it and they have knowledge on the tools that will support them in the future sustainability challenge. 1

ARIOLI

ARIOLI: THE STEAMING FACTORY The Arioli plant is located in the Como area, one of the most important textile districts in the world, where ARIOLI has been producing machinery for fabric finishing for more than 60 years. The success of the company is based on the founder’s invention of a continuous steamer for fixing prints on textiles, as an alternative to the consolidated batch processes that had, previously, been more commonly used for the process. The technical, economic and environmental benefits related to the new technology were so extraordinary that they became a standard reference for the sector and, still today, the ARIOLI brand is globally recognised and widely associated with this steaming process.

ARIOLI VAPO2008: for an eco-efficient steam management VAPO 2008 represents the state of the art in textile steaming processes. The steam injection system, as well as the configuration of the ventilation, is the heart of the technology. This system ensures a controlled differential steam distribution in the various fabric treatment zones, maintaining a constant temperature of the overall reaction chamber. In this way, it is possible to concentrate a high quantity of steam, up to 70 per cent of the total, where it is mostly needed - i.e just after the fabric enters into the steamer, where the first fixation phase takes place. Thanks to this system, it is possible to maximise the action of the chemicals in the printing paste, whose action is determined by

the presence of water (hygroscopic, hydrotropic, imbibing, swelling agents…), with results that can be qualified as follows: • Up to 30 per cent reduction in chemical demand; • About 30-40 per cent reduction in the urea concentration in the printing paste formulation; • Consistent treatment time reduction with productivity increase.

Bianco Evotech Tensionless: high cutting precision, speed and fabric relaxation for a unique and extremely “eco-friendly” slitting line! Two machines in one. Thanks to its modular structure, Bianco Evotech offers a double application, working both as rope opener and as slitting line. Ultimate control. The Luxury version - complete with hydraulic platform and fully synchronized rope squeezer and AP04-untwister - allows fabric unwinding by reducing the elongation in the opening phase: all that being completely steered by electronics and software entirely designed and manufactured by Bianco - able to exactly control the whole process. Cutting speed. The slitting basket sensors entirely developed by Bianco - utilize a double couple of high power and long lasting light sources with reduced power consumption thanks to the new LED-technology. These innovative detectors let Bianco Evotech be the quickest slitter on the market.

Relaxation. Once that the cutting is complete, the fabric is taken onto a conveyor belt, where fibres shrink naturally, thanks to their complete relaxation. This operation leads to a reduction of fabric elongation by speeding up the following processes as well as to a considerable time and consumption saving. Ecological washing system. Bianco Evotech is equipped with TNK washing tank for the removal of enzymatic residuals. This washing process exploits the principle of full water recirculation with consequent reduction of water consumption thanks to its accurate pressure and level control, too. Ideal squeezing. To complete the line, one or more squeezing padders may be added to equalize the residual moisture on the fabric width, by ensuring a pressure of 52kg/cm2.

BRONGO: INNOVATION, SIMPLICITY, SUSTAINABILITY Brongo has operated in the field of industrial machines for washing and dyeing garments for more than 30 years. Our experience has led to the creation of cutting-edge products on the Italian market and abroad that are highly appreciated for the quality of their construction, their strength and reliability, their ease of use and advanced technology. Our first priority is to our customers and we have studied and developed solutions customized to their needs. We have focused on eco sustainability, preferring constructive options to reducing the liquid ratio for both washing and dyeing.

Less liquor ratio = less consumptions Our rotary dyeing machines with divided drum (models RT and RCT) are appreciated and known throughout the world as our strength. They have been designed for all dyeing treatments on ready-made garments and have been developed to satisfy customers requests to decrease energy and water consumption, which means less environmental impact. Brongo has operated in this field for more than 30 years like developer so we have focused on “constructive options”. We reduce at the minimum the distance between the drum and the shell and we realize a system of indirect steam heating which doesn’t require water in circulation between the shell and the boiler. This characteristic reduces the use of water and allow the operator to keep a small ratio of water/dry material even if he needs to reduce the quantity of material in the machine.

We have also improved our machines for ready-made garments washing treatments (models L and LCO) to make more innovative, simple and eco sustainable.

FADIS

A GREEN COMPANY FOR A GREEN MACHINE Fadis was founded in 1960 with the purpose of manufacturing textile machines such as rewinders, soft winders, assembly winders, hank to cone winders, reeling machines, spooling machines and intermingling machines, which are meant to process all types of yarns such as cotton, wool, silk, artificial fibres, synthetic fibres, mixed fibres, intermingled yarns, fancy yarns. Fadis has invested in its production process by installing a photovoltaic system that achieves complete energy independence through renewable energy and allows a reduction of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere equal to 11.6 tons per year.

SINCRO SPRINT: simple to use, energy and space efficient One fundamental aspect of eco-sustainability is the extremely compact size of our machines, resulting in lower investment in premises, less lighting of these and thus less investments in buildings and a larger environmental protection of “green spaces�. In fact, the SINCRO SPRINT is a new spooling machine with a very compact structure that allows a 33% increased container loading. This has been obtained thanks to the use of a more modern structural building concept, with new and lighter materials. The KWh/kg required, in comparison with the previous Spoolex model, has decreased from 0,29 to 0,15, this means less than 50% of energy consumption required for kg produced. This savings is not only economically convenient but it is also a protection for our environment with a CO2 eq./produced yarn release value of 0,0657 compared with a 0,1.

This has been obtained by replacing the high power consumption motorized spindle with a more efficient winding spindles system where the flanged bobbin is locked between two flanges guaranteeing an excellent control and structural stability of the bobbin itself. Last but not least, the winding technique used together with our unique tension control system allows the formation of perfect flanged bobbins that will strongly reduce the wastage during the subsequent covering / twisting process, thus making the processing more efficient and cost saving.

FERRARO

FERRARO SANFOR: CONSISTENT COOLING WATER REDUCTION Ferraro Spa, founded in 1952, is officially recognized as the leading manufacturer and marketer of finishing machines for knitted fabrics. Appreciated for the high quality of its products, for the effective after-sales service and for the high degree of flexibility in meeting the needs of customers from all over the world, welcomes with enthusiasm and innovative spirit the new challenges for the design of machines ever more efficient but at the same time with the lowest environmental impact.

Less water, higher efficiency, less cost Since 2006, Ferraro has focused his attention developing a sanfor unit mainly designed for sensitive knitted fabrics. After few years , Ferraro leads the worldwide market due its particular patented design that allows to manage the most delicate and light pure viscose drawning its attention on energy saving, production improvement and maintenance reduction costs. In order to prolong the service life of the rubber blanket, it has to be cooled on the inside and outside. It requires approx. 4m³/hr (220 cm working width). New Ferraro inbuilt cooling and recycling system has drastically reduced the amount of water required to only

the amount necessary as fabric pick up. The standard tank contains only 120 lts constantly recycled, kept at constant 21/24°C and simply refilled with water picked up by fabric (ex.: 2.2 mt fabric, weight 160 gsm = 352 gms - linear meter = considering a pick up at 8 to 10% = 35.2 gms of water picked up. Considering an average speed of 30 mt/m we have 35,2 gms x 30 min x 60 min = approx 65 lt /h.!!!). Everything with a little additional cost, extra pump less than 1Kw, water at ideal °C hencing to shorter rubber grinding intervals and ultimately a shorter service life of the blanket. The fastest pay-back than ever!!

Its engineering section also deals with customized plants for the coating and the lamination, using technologies with flame, hotmelt, thermoplastic powder scattering and knife coating. Mario Crosta has been using since more than 15 years, a DC BUS power system, which allows an optimization of the energy levels, achieving savings that, in some cases, can reach 35%.

Manage your business, manage your energy consumption The latest release of LISA 4 brush sueding machine adopts the same concepts of low energy consumption of all machines of Mario Crosta. The DC BUS power system, not only lengthens the life to all the dedicated electronics, but substantially reduces their energy consumption. A careful study on the type of material used for the brushes brought Mario Crosta to produce a machine which treats the fabrics "gently but firmly", increasing the production speed, but always with a view to the consumption reduction. This choice has also increased significantly the uniformity of the process, with surprising results in terms of quality and repeatability of the effect.

The great attention to the aerodynamics of the machine has furthermore achieved a high cleaning fabric output, without being necessary to increase the suction power. The result is a fabric that will caress you, without damaging the environment.

ROJ

WEFT LENGTH MEASURER – SUPER ELF X3 ROJ was founded in Biella in 1965. In 2000, ROJ becomes part of the Belgian VAN DE WIELE Group and becomes a more electronic oriented company. ROJ believes that communication is a strategic element to respond promptly to market demands. Our highly qualified teams follow the entire life cycle of the products, from design to industrialization, from sales to customer service worldwide, providing our customers with all the necessary skills to carry out joint projects. ROJ is your partner for custom designed products and systems using cutting-edge technologies tailored to specific applications.

Quicker, Better, Cheaper ‌ Together SUPER ELF X3 is a weft feeder for air jet looms suitable for all types of yarn with a minimum count of 20 dTex and maximum 5mm. Special variants of the product are defined for special yarns as jute, flat monofilament (PP, PE), Kevlar, Carbon, Glass. The unwinding from the bobbins is powered by a permanent magnet motor that reduces to a minimum the consumption of electricity. The yarn is temporarily wound on a cylindrical body whose surface is designed in the shape and treated to minimise friction with the weft, reducing the time of flight of the same, with consequent saving of compressed air by the loom. An innovative system of optical sensors for the weft detection is particularly

insensitive to dust or dirt deposited by the passage of the yarn. This avoids the increase of light intensity of the emitter necessary to compensate for the lower sensitivity due to dirt and to avoid the need for cleaning by means of compressed air. It means a further saving of electric energy and the elimination of the consumption of compressed air.

SALMOIRAGHI

EFFICIENT HANDLING OF MANMADE FIBER PRODUCTS Since fifty years we specialize in automatic handling systems for manufacturing plants, making the process safe and efficient, thus guaranteeing optimized product tracking and total quality.

We minimize environmental impact and energy consumption during the “chuck to truck” handling of continuous fiber bobbins. The Doffer is the Salmoiraghi system for bobbin pick-up from any winder type, and bobbin transfer to overhead or ground transport vehicles for subsequent automated handling. The machine consists of the following main groups: • Vertical rotary column. • Upper travel carriage. • Vertically moving mandrel group equipped with winder approach mechanism and bobbin pusher. The machine is controlled by a PLC, which supplies the positioning and speed target values to a multi-axis motor controller, featuring kinetic energy recovery and intelligent torque and power management for energy saving. The machine does not use pneumatic circuits, thus minimizing noise emissions and environmental impact; it is equipped with advanced obstacle-detection sensors to guarantee operator safety.

After receiving a “call”, the Doffer travels to the relevant winding position, and aligns its mandrel with the winder chuck; following a signal exchange, the Doffer receives the bobbins on board, and successively transfers them to an overhead “Shuttle” (bobbin transport vehicle) or a pin cart. This fully automatic work cycle is characterized by low energy consumption, and completely eliminates manual handling, guaranteeing total quality and significant cost reduction.

EURATEX

Energy made-to-measure Energy made-to-measure is the information campaign which promotes energy efficiency for the companies of the European Textile and Clothing industry. The name, also shortened in EM2M, has been translated into 10 languages and used in most of the sector-relevant European countries where the campaign is already active. Launched in 2014 by Euratex, the European Apparel and Textile Confederation, in collaboration with dozens of organizations across Europe the campaign promotes key results of successful initiatives for energy efficiency in the sector and it supports companies to access, understand and use those results. The ultimate goal is to help no less than 300 companies to gain from the right information by accessing tools, best practices and training which enable managers to assess options and take informed decisions. The starting point is that most companies, notably the SMEs, are not really aware of the actual energy consumption and of the saving potential. Where and when is energy used, where is it lost in the building or in production, what are the options and how long does it take to repay the investment. These often unaddressed questions represent information failures which are the first barriers preventing companies to unlock investments and which are indeed tackled by Energy Made to Measure. From an operational stand point, EM2M does not create new original contents but it gathers high quality results and promotes them with a common identity across Europe and in countries’ mother tongues thanks to collaborations with partners and local stakeholders. This creates scale economies, and critical mass for projects which therefore increase their lifetime, reach and overall the impact at international level. In 2014 over 500 professionals participated in 21 EM2M public events organized in Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria and Lithuania in cooperation of several dozen organizations and within two projects co-financed by the European Union: ARTISAN and SESEC. As of 2015 the activities of Energy Made to Measure focus on textile production processes thanks to the resources of the project SET, coordinated by Euratex, and in collaboration with the initiatives launched by two national associations of textile machinery manufacturers namely the VDMA in Germany and the ACIMIT in Italy. Both associations have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Euratex. The cooperation between the Sustainable Technology Project of ACIMIT and Euratex’s Energy Made to Measure campaign establish synergies to exchange technical information and maximise the impact of communication. ACIMIT is also member of the Advisory Board of the SET project and in such capacity supports defining the project strategic direction, technical and communication activities run in at least 10 European Countries. www.euratex.eu/set www.euratex.eu/em2m 54
