A typical t-shirt takes 25 liters of water to dye, but adidas has introduced ‘DryDye’; a new process that uses no water, 50% less energy, and 50% fewer chemicals.
adidas has teamed up with the Yeh Group to use the revolutionary DryDye technology to put color into its t-shirts without using any water. It normally takes 25 liters of water to dye one t-shirt but this innovative technique uses a pressurized form of carbon dioxide instead. DryDye also uses 50% less energy and 50% fewer chemicals.
This summer, adidas is making 50,000 DryDye t-shirts with fabric from the Yeh Group, saving 1,250,000 liters of water. In the future, the company plans to make more products with DryDye. Check out the video below for more information:
