Nearchimica’s launches new energy and water-efficient dyeing solution for cotton garments


Dyes manufacturer Nearchimica has launched its latest garment dyeing solution that aims to not only cut energy costs but also save a huge quantity of water. Designed especially for cotton garments, the reactive dye facilitates cold-water dyeing, says Roberto Camera Magni, CEO, Nearchimica, the Italian producer of chemical additives and textile dyes.

Presented at the Denim PV trade show, the N-Ice Dyeing technique helps offset a sharp rise in energy costs besides improving waste water recycling. The textile-dye is salt free which makes it easier for customers to recycle water.

Involved in developing chemicals with minimal environmental impact since the last 40 years, Nearchimica was founded in 1981 by Alfredo Camera. The company opened two major labs in Legnano in 1993. Besides dyes, Nearchimica also produces chemical additives to degrade or soften fabrics, or to boost some features of textile finishing treatments, like antiperspirant treatment. The company operates two divisions: the textiles division that accounts for 70 per cent of its revenues, and the apparel division which constitutes for 30 per cent of the revenue. It has around 400 clients in 30 countries, and generates 60 per cent of its revenue outside Italy, chiefly in Asia.

In 2023, Nearchimica registered a 9 per cent decline in annual revenue to €14.9 million from €15 million-€16 million. However, it expects revenues to return to usual levels in 2024.
