About GoBlu and the BHive®

GoBlu International is the sustainability accelerator for the textile industry. In response to growing concerns about toxic chemicals used in the manufacture of textiles, the company has developed an easy-to-use app designed to revolutionize chemical management in global supply chains. Using OCR technology, the BHive® enables production facilities to take smartphone photos of chemical product labels and identify in seconds which products meet the sustainability requirements of many brands and retailers. After uploading, all scanned chemicals are matched against the BHive® database and the system automatically creates a complete and accurate chemical inventory. Facilities can then see at a glance which chemicals they should take out of circulation. More at: www.thebhive.net/
