Study of environmental issues in textile industries and recent wastewater treatment technology

Title variants
Languages of publication
Textile industries are the major source of environmental pollution In terms of quality as well as quantity. The textile industries consume large quantities of water (200 m3/ton of product) out of which around 90% is appeared as wastewater. Textile wastewater contains dye as the major pollutant which is not only recalcitrant but also imparts intense color to the waste effluent. Improper disposal of textile wastewater causes serious environmental problems affecting the aquatic organism adversely. The present study deals with the detailed study of environmental issues and treatment options. The industry generates huge amount of wastewater contains toxic pollutants. Several treatment technologies are using now days with high efficiency and from the present study it was found that advanced oxidation process is very effective in terms of pollutants removal efficiency as well as cost requirement.
