Kingwhale, a responsible manufacturer of performance textiles, is putting itself in a stronger position to recycle discarded resources and convert them into new, reusable textiles, reducing carbon emissions and dependence on petrochemicals.
President of Kingwhale, James Huang, said they call it a ‘textile-to-textile' method because they can produce new fibers from old ones. They're gathering discarded clothing, breaking them down, and reviving it as sustainable fibers. And it's all done using eco-friendly safe treatments.
Kingwhale is a vertically integrated corporation that controls the entire production chain from fiber spinning to clothing weaving to garment construction. It is known for its advanced knits and fleeces. Furthermore, the corporation has long prioritized efficiency, with proprietary processes culminating in production methods that reduce energy use, pollution, and resource use.
Huang said the garment industry is infamous for producing a lot of waste. However, Kingwhale is assisting in the correction of this. They've always advocated for a circular economy in the clothing industry, so they're working hard to create revolutionary recyclable fabrics that can be regenerated into new products several times, reducing the industry's reliance on petroleum and other mined resources.
This year, Kingwhale will introduce new fiber-based goods that are both sustainable and biodegradable.
Kingwhale joined the RE100 global movement in 2020 to further highlight its contribution to carbon neutrality and responsible production, promising to use 100% renewable electricity by 2040. The garment company is the first in the Asia-Pacific region to do this. RE100, which is led by the multinational non-profit The Environment Group, puts together big, prominent groups like Kingwhale who are committed to taking bold climate-change action.
Furthermore, solar panels installed in Kingwhale's facilities provided approximately 850,000 kWh of energy in the past year. Its carbon dioxide loss is equivalent to the CO2 absorption of over 41,000 plants.
“For years, we've been paving the way for responsible textile production,” Huang said. “Looking ahead, I am confident that Kingwhale will assist in the development of new best practices to mitigate carbon emissions and reduce the industry's reliance on petroleum. In the meantime, I'm certain we'll introduce some game-changing sustainable fibers.”
Huang said they’ve been paving the path for responsible textile production for years. Looking ahead, he knows Kingwhale can help establish new best practices to reduce carbon emissions and minimize the industry’s dependence on petroleum. And they’ll launch some game-changing sustainable fibers in the process.
