RIO RANCHO, N.M. — Rio Rancho becomes a part of the textile industry with Green Theme Technologies Inc. moving from Albuquerque.
Gary Selwyn founded Green Theme Technologies with the mission to develop a water-resistant formula fluorocarbon, or PFO-free.
Many outdoor clothing lines use PFOs to make products water-resistant. Clothing is washed in a chemical formula that contains PFOs. This pollutes water used during the process and the chemical wash is harmful to people, according to a report from the National Collaboration Centre for Environmental Health, NCCEH.
