BÖNNIGHEIM, GERMANY (March 28, 2019) – Following its recent recognition by the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Program as a partnering wastewater testing laboratory, Hohenstein now offers customers the security of ZDHC-compliant manufacturing.

As an internationally accredited testing laboratory, service provider and research partner of the textile industry, Hohenstein is thrilled to further support the objectives of the ZDHC and the ZDHC Roadmap.

Like Hohenstein and the OEKO-TEX® Association, the ZDHC has the goal of significantly reducing or completely banning the use of harmful chemicals in the production process of textiles, leather and shoes. By testing wastewater values, Hohenstein supports the industry on the path to reduced emissions.

Hohenstein has been a member of the ZDHC and its laboratory working group since December 2018. Chemicals can be tested for ZDHC MRSL (Manufactured Restricted Substances List) conformity using ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX®.

Hohenstein laboratories are available to all manufacturing companies interested in having their value creation chain checked for ZDHC conformity.
