TUBINGALŽ RISE | First textile softener based on recycled silicones

Following the circular economy model, end-of-life silicone products are recycled and with TUBINGALŽ RISE converted into a new softener. By doing this, the CHT Group is supporting the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) of the United Nations and underlining its own commitment to sustainability.

Together with TUBINGALŽ RISE to the circular economy

The transformation from a linear economy to a circular economy is a vital process that requires cross-industry collaboration.

In the past, production methods for manufacturing silicone fabric softeners were based entirely on linear concepts. With the development and production of TUBINGALŽ RISE (Recycled Innovative Silicone Emulsion), the world’s first fabric softener made of more than 60% recycled and reprocessed silicone waste and renewable bio-based emulsifiers has now been made available to the market. The quality of this product is identical to a silicone softener made of primary raw materials.

TUBINGALŽ RISE also meets the wide-ranging requirements for textile standards as bluesignŽ, ZDHC and GOTS. It also allows for Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX.

One important characteristic of this recycled softener is that it has been specially designed to be suitable for the production of GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified textile products. 

TUBINGALŽ RISE is a perfect match to recycled materials to realise a fully integrated recycling concept.
