The BHive digital chemical management platform
Specialty chemicals company Archroma becomes a The BHive partner to help foster chemical compliance and management across the textile supply chain, according to the company. The BHive is a digital chemical management platform that provides information about chemical products to its users. It was developed by GoBlu International Ltd. to allow manufacturing facilities to easily create digital inventories of the chemical products used onsite. They can identify in a matter of seconds which products meet sustainability requirements of their brand and retail customers, with whom they can also share this information. This enables brands and retailers to achieve full transparency about the chemical use in their global supply chain. Over 30 international fashion brands and 500 factories are reportedly partnered with The BHive to drive sustainable chemistry in the textile and fashion industry.
More than 2000 Archroma chemical products and dyes are now included in The BHive database. As part of the company’s commitment, the global and local product stewardship teams of Archroma support customers in their efforts to comply with regulations, eco-certifications and brand requirements with timely and reliable information and documentation, according to the company.
Paul Cowell, head of Archroma’s Competence Centers for Brand & Performance Textile Specialties, explains, "With the pandemic crisis, textile manufacturers are experiencing numerous logistic bottlenecks and challenges. With The BHive, our partners have now an additional access path to the information about chemical usage and compliance for the Archroma products they keep at their facilities."
