As an internationally accredited testing laboratory, service provider and research partner of the textiles industry, Hohenstein says it 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 laboratories are available to all manufacturing companies that would like to have their value creation chain certified for ZDHC conformity. © HohensteinHohenstein 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.

As a test and research laboratory, Hohenstein already has many years of experience of handling chemicals in the textiles industry. In this sense, as a new waste water testing laboratory recognised by the ZDHC, Hohenstein is also pleased to be able to support the objectives of the ZDHC and its roadmap in this regard.
