Scientists involved in an EU textiles project indicated that atmospheric plasma treatments provide energy and water savings [1]. However, public life cycle assessments of Jeanologia's ozone treatment (atmospheric plasma) technology appear to be unavailable, although the company provides an environmental performance calculator on its website [2].

Jeanologia claim that its G2 Plus ozone treatment, which uses atmospheric plasma, provides process energy savings of 51% compared to a conventional approach, which will translate into carbon savings [3]. It also claims 50% water and 57% chemical savings.
