Klopman: New Investments for Maximum Energy Efficiency and Resource Recycling

Klopman's ECOTEC project aims to establish a technological platform for developing innovative formulations and industrial processes with low environmental impact (Klopman)

Klopman, worldwide leader in the production of workwear fabrics, has implemented a wide range of investments for maximum energy efficiency and recycling of resources.

Klopman since 1967 is leader manufacturer of workwear fabrics for big industrial laundries and major industrial groups throughout Europe and beyond.

Starting in FY2021- 22, the company has made a series of investments in its Frosinone plant for the optimization of the core operations in the production area to maximise energy efficiency and resource recycling and recovery. A new independent power cogeneration station has already been installed, we are setting-up over 50 of our new looms of the latest generation, a new warping and sizing live to efficiently serve the new looms, two new finishing lines to satisfy new market trends and to ensure resource saving and will also be shortly installed a new sanfor line for fabrics dimensional stability control.

Significant investments for a total of about 10 million euros that will lead to a major efficiency improvement of the entire weaving area and a consequent energy saving, compared to the previous looms, of about 40% (corresponding to more than 600 tons/year of reduction of CO₂ released into the atmosphere). Similar results, as for the two new finishing lines that will bring a 35% saving in energy used for a total of 250 tons/year of CO₂ emission reduction.

The new installations will guarantee great efficiency and sustainability of the entire greige department and production area. With this efforts, the company aims to combine the highest quality standards with the maximum energy saving and efficiency.

The measures adopted in Klopman in terms of energy efficiency for our production process, also include the water recycling system on all preparation lines, that made possible in the fiscal year 21-22 to biologically treat 34,900 m³ of wastewater per week and recycle 250,830 m³ of water a year.

The company also implemented advanced heat recovery systems to drastically reduce CO₂ emissions through the thermal power recovery.

As a major textile producer, Klopman believes it is important to take responsibility for their actions. They understand the role their products play in the markets they serve, as well as the impact that the manufacturing, distribution and processing of their products can have on the environment. Therefore, they focus their efforts on the continuous improvement of the environmental performance of their operations.

Their drive to improve energy efficiency and minimise CO₂ emissions is unwavering at Klopman and it’s one that continues as they meet new challenges and show results through investments in technology and innovation.
