What is Process Heat? What is the current status of the industrial heat system in the garment industry? Why does the shift towards more sustainable industrial heat conversion attract the interest of many Vietnamese garment manufacturing enterprises? Are there any viable transformation technology solutions available today?

The concerns were among the main topics discussed in a series of webinars ‘Sustainable process heat solutions for garment and textile manufacturers’, which took place on 14 and 19 March.

GIZ’ s Project Development Programme (PDP) and Initiative for Global Solidarity (IGS) jointly organised the technical webinars, addressing managers, boiler operators and other technical staff of textile, garment, footwear and handbag manufacturing enterprises in Viet Nam.

More than 200 people attended the webinars. The many questions from the participants illustrated the great interest in the topics, focusing on the improvement of boiler performance and operational efficiency, conversion costs and greenhouse gas emissions.

The events are part of the ‘Sustainable industrial heat solutions for textile enterprises’ initiative which is a joint effort by GIZ and its partner the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, being implemented in Viet Nam.

The initiative supports the enterprises to switch from coal and CO2-intensive fuel towards more sustainable process heat systems, e.g. heat pump, electric boiler and biomass, with an aim to reduce GHG emissions in production. This initiative fosters collaboration and shared responsibility between international fashion brands, their strategic suppliers in Viet Nam as well as other relevant stakeholders to speed up decarbonization in textile supply chain.
