ZDHC waste-water testing

The Roadmap to Zero: ZDHC testing at Hohenstein

The Roadmap to Zero: ZDHC testing at Hohenstein
The Roadmap to Zero: ZDHC testing at Hohenstein
Erve Europe are pleased to announce that testing laboratory Hohenstein is now a member of The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals Programme (ZDHC), meaning we can offer an even wider range of tests that ensure the quality of our materials.

The Hohenstein laboratory offers a wide range of chemical tests that detect harmful substances in textiles. These tests can be conducted at all stages of the production process: on raw, intermediate and end products. This helps manufacturers and brands to ensure the quality of their products.

In December 2018 Hohenstein became a member of ZDHC and gained ZDHC accreditation for its waste-water testing facilities.

About ZDHC

The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals Programme is a collaboration of brands, value-chain affiliates and other organisations. Its ultimate aim is to eliminate hazardous chemicals from the textile and footwear industry. ZDHC members are committed to advancing towards zero discharge of hazardous chemicals in the value chain to improve the environment and people’s wellbeing.

A wide range of testing facilities

ZDHC is a highly valued programme and we are delighted to be able to offer ZDHC-certified waste-water tests by Hohenstein. As Erve Europe is compliant with ZDHC standards, we require all our suppliers to subject their products to waste-water testing and we can now offer an additional laboratory for it.
