In response to rising concern over toxic chemicals in the fashion industry, sustainability accelerator GoBlu International has created an easy-to-use app which will revolutionize chemical management in global supply chains.
The BHive app uses OCR technology to allow manufacturing facilities to take smartphone photos of chemical product labels, and within seconds identify which products meet the sustainability requirements of many brands/retailers. Upon upload, all scanned chemicals are cross-referenced with the BHive’s database—currently backed by over 45,000 chemical products—and the system automatically generates a full and accurate chemical inventory. Facilities can then see which chemicals they should keep using and which they should phase out—all at a glance.
