Clean technologies for textile processing units: Need of the hour
Author(s): Dr. Vinita Koka
Textile processing is one of the largest industrial users of process water and huge quantities of chemicals at different stages of processing. The unused materials from these processing operations are discharged as wastewater that is high in BOD, COD, pH, and temperature, color, odors, turbidity and toxic chemicals. The direct discharge of this wastewater on water bodies like streams and rivers pollutes the water and affects the flora and fauna. In India, the capacity and the technology of wastewater treatment plants are abysmally poor compared to vast effluents that contribute to water contamination. So, in order to reduce the wastewater problem or for the conservation of energy, materials and other resources, the development of clean technologies is the possible solution that needs to be focused on.
