THE ZYOSH SOLUTION

Zyosh is a smart solution that paves the way towards making the fabric industry cleaner, more committed and sustainable.

The Zyosh solution provides all the technical information for each item of clothing on one label. The label changes colour with the number of washes.

Consumers can see how the release of micro- and non-particles increases with the number of washes and, thus, their own pollution. All thanks to the changing colour of the label.

The digitisation and identification services included on the label inform consumers of when, where and how to recycle their clothing, before they begin to pollute more quickly and, therefore, start to rapidly release micro- and nano-particles.

FIRST

Each brand sends Zyosh the technical information on its garments

The information includes the composition of the fabrics and thread and the recycling process for each item, individually.

SECOND

Zyosh summarises the information

We use the information and process it on our cloud platform, encrypting it and encoding it in an individual QR for each garment.

THIRD

We transfer the information to a special label

We provide the brand with labels that contain an invisible QR code that can be sewn into the garment.

FOURTH

Labels with an invisible QR code are integrated into the clothing

The labels with the QR code are sewn into the clothing just like any other label, so the end user will buy the garment with the Zyosh label in the store as normal.

FIFTH

The garment reaches the recycling threshold

The end user wears and washes the garment as normal. When the QR code becomes visible and readable by a smartphone the fabric has become polluting and therefore should be recycled.

SIXTH

The information in the QR code

Zyosh receives the information from the QR code (when it is read by the final consumer with their smartphone) and organises for the garment to be collected and recycled.

SEVENTH

The end user contacts Zyosh

We send the instructions to the end user to organise the recycling of the garment, either as it is or with detailed instructions on how to prepare it for optimal recycling (removing buttons and labels, etc. at home).

WASHING MACHINE FILTER

The washing machine filter provides a new way of washing clothes, saving water and preventing micro- and nano-particle pollution from reaching the sea.

The Zyosh filtration system is a Research and Development project focusing on obtaining a new concept that turns the classic washing machine into a machine that prevents the leakage of all kinds of inorganic waste and micro-particles into the sea after each wash. The filter is based on a hydrothermal carbonisation (HTC) or wet pyrolysis process.

FIRST

Clothes washing

Normal clothes washing. The waste water runs through a special filter, where the hydrothermal carbonisation process takes place.

SECOND

Wet pyrolysis process

A thermochemical process that involves subjecting the waste water to a certain temperature and pressure to separate the micro- and nano-particles from the water. Exposure to high temperatures and no oxygen causes the different molecules to separate.

THIRD

Plastic layer formation

The temperature is increased, causing the plastic particles to join together on the water surface.

FOURTH

Hydrolysis and other transformations

Hydrolysis starts at above 200º. This process causes the water molecules to break up and the micro- and nano-particles as well as other chemical substances to split from the water.

FIFTH

Adhesion to the layer

The molecules of materials other than water adhere to the plastic layer.

SIXTH

Carbon densification

The surface layer and the other adhered materials become denser and form a new material. The organic waste and micro- and nano-particles generally densify.

SEVENTH

Water and Carbonaceous material

The carbonaceous material obtained from the wet pyrolysis process can be easily separated from water and can be used for different things, depending on its nature; from fertilising biomass to fuel.
