GFUN offers five to six customized green material specifications each year. In 2020, we established the goal of 10% growth in green processing plant-wide per year. By 2025, we plan to use green processes for at least 50% of our processed products.
The textile industry has a lengthy supply chain. In addition to using polyester fabrics made from recycled PET bottles for coatings and laminates, GFUN has taken the initiative to develop polyester fabric processing from recycled PET bottles from the ocean. As ocean conservation becomes an increasingly important part of environmental protection, GFUN is ready to do its part as a member of the textile industry in ensuring the sustainability of ocean resources.
Our biomass-based raw materials are compliant with USDA biomass standards and must be mutually exclusive with food crops. GFUN aims to reduce the use of petrochemicals while avoiding food crop-based biomass materials to actualize petrochemical material substitution. This ensures division of food crops and household goods at the downstream and promotes sustainable agriculture, effectively achieving reduction of carbon and GHG emissions overall.
GFUN has gradually ramped up the use of recycled materials, biomass materials, and water-based processes in waterproof, breathable product manufacturing. We have planned our production around recycled plastics from electronics manufacturers, FSC-certified water-based biomass adhesives, and USDA-certified biomass-based resin produced from recycled coffee grounds. Therefore, compared with traditional solvent-based resin processing, we have massively reduced VOCs and carbon emissions.
Since 2019, GFUN has been using natural gas its only heat source, replacing traditional carbon heavy fuel sources of the textile industry such as coal or heavy oil. This reduces carbon emissions by approximately 4,000 metric tons each year.
In order to promote the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the impact of climate change, GFUN has accumulated
In 2020, Our R&D team successfully developed advanced environmentally-sustainable products and processes. 80% use of petrochemical raw materials can be cut by implementing processing after fabric design in the manufacturing process, thereby reducing VOC emissions by 90%. GFUN's long-term goal is to eventually reach zero GHG emissions or complete non-toxic manufacturing.
