Cambridge based Alchemie Technology, a pioneer in low energy, waterless textile dyeing and finishing technology, has been recognised in the official History of Parliament Trust’s historic publication, 300 Years of Leadership and Innovation.

Launched to coincide with the 300th anniversary of the appointment of Britain’s first prime minister, Robert Walpole, in 1721, and in the year of the Queen’s 95th birthday, the book celebrates leadership across the full spectrum of British society.

“We are honoured to be included in this iconic publication and that our mission to create a world with zero pollution from textile dyeing is being recognised at this very important time for our planet and climate change,” said  Alchemie chairman Dr Alan Hudd. “Alchemie’s low energy, waterless dyeing technology transforms the most polluting part of garment manufacture, using 85% less energy and just 5% of the water required in traditional textile dyeing. We’ve created technology which dramatically reduces carbon emissions and is urgently needed to minimise fashion’s impact on climate change. By enabling the industry to rapidly decarbonise we can create a more sustainable global fashion and textile economy.”

Produced in partnership by the History of Parliament Trust – one of the most respected and authoritative research projects in British history – and publisher St James’s House, 300 Years of Leadership and Innovation is written by an editorial team of distinguished academics and award-winning authors.
