ACTICELL is developing environmentally friendly products for bleaching, dyeing, and pre-treatments for the better absorption of dye for denim fabric. ACTICELL is also part of the R&D project “eco-friendly bleaching of Jeans”. Although the experiments in the laboratory consumed most of my time at ACTICELL, my supervisors still managed to explain a lot of basic chemistry theory to me in-between. I learned a lot about cellulose and the dyeing and bleaching process. I was also recommended impressive media material about jeans production that illustrated the urgency of the changes that the company aims to achieve.




Persönliche Eindrücke:

Since I had barely any knowledge or experience in the field of chemistry, let alone working in a chemical research facility, I did not think that I could achieve much before I started my traineeship. As it turned out, I was wrong. Each day, I felt like I could help to take little steps towards the company’s goal: to make the textile industry less harmful for everyone. The team’s outstanding competence and dedication to their cause even convinced me to re-think my career choices. Thanks to the careful explanations, I understood how much can be improved in the field of chemistry that could help a significant amount of people. This led me to a newfound enthusiasm and excitement for chemical processes, and I now even consider studying chemistry and pursue a career in this field.
