ZDHC Wastewater & Sludge Testing
ZDHC is to enable brands and retailers in the textile, apparel and footwear industries to implement sustainable chemical management best practice across the value chain. Through collaborative engagement, standard setting and implementation, we will advance towards zero discharge of hazardous chemicals.
C-UTS understands these market challenges and requirements. Therefore, we have developed wastewater and sludge analytical services to satisfy different brands¡¯and retailers¡¯requirements in order to support their goals to achieve zero discharge. Our wastewater and sludge analytical services are designed based on our indepth industry experience, knowledge, experts, common practice worldwide as well as taking into consideration the extensive ZDHC analyte list and the comprehensive analytical approach.
The types of samples to be collected will depend on the testing option decided upon by the brand and supplier (manufacturing facility), but limited to the two testing options identified in the WWG. The WWG acknowledges the difference between facilitieswith a direct discharge, indirect discharge and on-site zero liquid discharge treatment plant. Important to note: to streamline efforts within the value chain, sampling, testing and reporting as per the WWG and as requested by one ZDHC Brand is a valid test. This test will and should be accepted by all ZDHC Brands.
