Apparel Industry

Apparel manufacture is creating environmentally damaging sludge. SeaChange offers a way to make the clothes we want while protecting our environment.

Manufacturing

Apparel manufacture is polluting our planet. SeaChange offers a way to make the clothes we want while protecting our environment.

Dyes and Chemicals

The dyes and chemicals used to create apparel and textiles end up in manufacturing wastewater. When treated with conventional treatment systems, these chemicals end up in an environmentally damaging chemical sludge.

Water Pollution

Apparel brands are trying to improve their environmental footprint by treating wastewater. But conventional treatment systems create byproducts that are expensive to dispose and emit greenhouse gasses.

Treatment

Conventional wastewater treatment system are unable to fully treat apparel wastewater. As a result, they generate toxic sludge, trading water pollution for land chemical discharge and massive carbon emission.

Wastewater Treatment

Treatment processes are energy intensive and still result in the production of wastewater and toxic sludge.

Sludge Production

Over a million tons of sludge are generated annually by the apparel industry.

Sludge

After treatment, wastewater is discharged into the environment or reused in the manufacturing process and solid waste is disposed of in landfills.

Landfill Disposal

Sludge breaks down in landfills resulting in methane emissions and chemical leaching into groundwater.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Methane released by sludge breaks down in landfills is 25 times more potent than carbon emissions.

The Solution

The SeaChange process is a novel, patented approach to water purification. Our system sustainably eliminates wastewater from industrial processes in a single step.

We do this by aerosolizing contaminated water, separating contaminants from the water vapor in a cyclonic separator; and finally, releasing the clean water vapor into the atmosphere.

The process replaces the concentrated brine waste common to other technologies with a safer and easier to handle dry mineral solids, and eliminates the need for replaceable filters or membranes.
