Waste from textile production poisons waterways and ecosystems around the world.

Global campaigns have drawn attention to toxic chemicals in textile production.

Uncontaminated wastewater lowers impact and shows progress. You'll need independent proof.

Independent and Accredited Wastewater Testing Labs

  • Conventional parameters
    e.g. AOX, COD and BOD, nitrogen levels or heavy metals
  • Textile-specific parameters
    e.g. chlorophenols, phthalates, flame retardants, APEO’s or PAH’s
