Description

Comprising six stages, including greige fabric inspection, unwinding and sewing, dyeing, printing, post-printing processing, and final inspection. Greige fabric inspection is conducted under lighting conditions. Unwinding and sewing primarily involve the use of unwinding machines and sewing machines, requiring minimal electricity consumption and a short duration. Dyeing employs conventional rope dyeing machinery, consuming electricity, industrial water, steam, and dye. Printing involves the extensive use of dyes, accompanied by significant steam consumption. Final inspection is conducted under lighting conditions. When using this data set for Life Cycle Assessments, pay special attention to the inventory data associated with each stage of the production process – particularly electricity, water, steam consumption, and dye usage. Ensure these inputs are appropriately allocated to the production output based on the weight or length of the printed cloth produced. Moreover, consider the technological efficiency of the machinery used and the environmental impacts of the dyes. If the data set is used for assessing products with recycling at their end-of-life stage, ensure the impacts of the recycling processes are incorporated.
