Eco Passport certification, established at the Hohenstein Institute in Germany, is a mechanism by which textile chemical suppliers demonstrate that their products can be used in sustainable textile production. The inks will be entered into the Oeko-Tex buying guide, which is the central sourcing platform of pre-certified articles and materials.
The new certifications cover DuPont’s Artistri textiles digital inks and pretreatments portfolio for both roll-to-roll and direct-to-garment textiles printing applications and specifically apply to pre-treatments, acid, reactive, disperse, pigment and dye sublimation inks.

The Eco Passport certificates can help give our customers an extra measure of confidence in using our products.”
