    • WATER CONSERVATION
    • OPTIMISATION OF CHEMICAL USAGE
    • PROCESS INNOVATIONS
    • SUBSTITUTION OF NON-ECOFRIENDLY CHEMICALS
  • AVERAGE WATER CONSUMPTION IN TEXTILE CHEMICAL PROCESSING
    • FIBRE WATER CONSUMPTION
    • (l/kg)
    • COTTON 50 - 200
    • WOOL 75 - 300
    • SYNTHETIC FIBRES 10 - 100
  • WATER CONSUMPTION
    • POSSIBILITIES TO ACHIEVE 25% CONSERVATION IN SOME CASES
    • REDUCE TOTAL EFFLUENT VOLUME
    • TOTAL POLLUTION LOAD
    • WASTE MINIMISATION THROUGH PROCESS OPTIMISATION
    • SIZING AGENT
    • STARCH MOST COMMON SIZING AGENT
    • HIGH BOD
    • CONTRIBUTE ~ 50% BOD LOAD
    • DEGRADATION DURING DESIZING
    • RECOVERY NOT POSSIBLE
    • MEASURE
    • REPLACE STARCH BY PVA
    • RECOVER PVA
    • LESS EFFLUENT LOADING
    • COST SAVING
    • APPLICATION NOT SUITABLE FOR SMALL AND MEDIUM MILLS
    • PVA COST IS HIGH
    • EXPENSIVE PVA RECOVERY SYSTEM (ULTRA FILTRATION )
    • MODIFICATION OF DESIZING PROCESS
    • HYDROLYTIC DESIZING
    • ENZYME OR ACID DESIZING
    • DEGRADATION PRODUCTS CONTRIBUTE TO BOD
    • OXIDATIVE DESIZING
    • HYDROGEN PEROXIDE
    • PERSULPHATE
    • DEGRADATION PRODUCTS
    • CARBON DIOXIDE
    • WATER
    • FREE FROM EFFLUENT LOAD
    • PROBLEMS
    • FORMATION OF OXY-CELLULOSE
    • PRECAUTION
    • CONTROL OVER CHEMICAL CONCENTRAION, TIME AND TEMPERATURE
    • USE OF NEW ENZYMES
    • NEW ENZYMES DEVELOPED FOR HOME LAUNDRING MARKET DEGRADE STARCH TO ETHANOL
    • TRANSFER PRINTING
    • CONVENTIONAL PRINTING (SEQUENCE)
    • PREPARATION OF COLOUR PASTE
    • PRINTING

    • WASTE MINIMISATION THROUGH ADVANCED DYEING
    • TWO WAYS TO SOLVE POLLUTION PROBLEM
    • EFFLUENT TREATMENT
    • REDUCING WASTE GENERATION AT SOURCE
    • WAYS TO MINIMISE DYE WASTE
    • LOWER LIQUOR RATIO
    • PROCESS OPTIMISATION AND INNOVATIONS
    • SUBSTITUTION OF OFFENDING DYES AND CHEMICALS
    • LOWER LIQUOR RATIOS
    • THIS APPROACH HELPS IN
    • REDUCTION IN TOTAL EFFLUENT VOLUME
    • REDUCTION IN THE QUANTITY OF CHEMICALS USED WHERE CHEMICAL CONCENTRATION EXPRESSED IN g/l
    • REDUCTION IN POLLUTION LOAD
    • EXAMPLE
    • DYEING OF COTTON WITH VAT OR REACTIVE DYE
    • CHANGE OF LIQUOR RATIO FROM 10 : 1 TO 5 : 1
    • DECREASE IN POLLUTION LOAD ~ 40%
    • PROCESS INNOVATION
    • VERY IMPORTANT STEP TOWARDS WASTE MINIMISATION
    • CLOSE INTERACTION BETWEEN PROCESSORS, DYESTUFF MANUFACTURERS AND MACHINERY MANUFACTURERS IS ESSENTIAL
    • CASE STUDY
    • DYEING OF COTTON WITH LOW SALT REACTIVE DYES
    • SALT REQUIRMENT
    • CONVENTIONAL REACTIVE DYES 30 - 80 g/l
    • LOW SALT REACTIVE DYES 20 g/l
    • EFFECT OF HIGH SALT CONCENTRATION ON ENVIRONMENT
    • REMOVAL OF ONLY SMALL QUANTITY OF SALT DURING EFFLUENT TREATMENT
    • MAJOR QUANTITY OF SALT REMAINS IN EFFLUENT WATER
    • RIVERS AND LAKES POLLUTED BY HIGH INFLUX OF DYE EFFLUENTS CONTAINING HIGH SALT CONCENTRATION
    • FRESH WATER ORGANISMS CAN SUFFER TOXIC EFFECT
    • IN REGIONS WITH SCARCE FRESH WATER RESOURSES, SUCH WASTE WATER HAS TO BE USED FOR IRRIGATION
    • HOWEVER, IF THE SALT
    • CONCENTRATION IS TOO HIGH SOIL MAY BECOME OVER LOADED WITH SALT AND THE LAND MAY BECOME INFERTILE AND ULTIMATELY HAVE TO BE ABONDONED
    • APPROACHES TO SOLVE PROBLEM OF SALT LOAD
    • DYEING AT LOWEST POSSIBLE LIQUOR RATIO
    • USING DYE CLASSES OTHER THAN REACTIVE e.g. VAT REQUIRING LOW SALT CONCENTRATION FOR DYEING
    • USING REACTIVE DYES GIVING HIGH EXHAUSTION AND FIXATION AT LOW SALT CONCENTRATION
    • LOW SALT REACTIVE DYES
    • BI-REACTIVES
    • MEDIUM REACTIVITY
    • STABLE DYE FIBRE BOND
    • TWO CHROMOPHORES CONTRIBUTE TO HIGH AFFINITY AND HIGH COLOUR STRENGTH
    • HIGH EXHAUSTION AND FIXATION AT LOW SALT CONCENTRATION
    • THE SALT REQUIREMENT IS REDUCED TO 1/4th COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL REACTIVE DYES
    • RINSING STEP AFTER DYE FIXATION IS MUCH FASTER AND LESS WATER IS NEEDED
    • LOW SALT DYES GIVE HIGHER FIXATION THAN CONVENTIONAL DYES
    • THIS LEADS TO LOWER DYE CONCENTRATION IN THE EFFLUENT
    • LOW SALT DYES ARE AN EXAMPLE OF ECOLOGICAL PRODUCT DESIGN THAT CONTRIBUTES TO A SAFER AND HEALTHIER ENVIRONMENT
    • THEY ADDRESS SOME URGENT ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS SIMPLY BY NOT CREATING THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE
  • SUBSTITUTION OF OFFENDING DYES AND CHEMICALS
    • SUBSTITUTION OF DYES
    • AVOID USING DYES WHICH FALL UNDER THE PREVIEW OF GERMAN REGULATIONS
    • SUBSTITUTES ARE AVAILABLE FOR MOST SUCH PRODUCTS
    • LEADING DYESTUFF MANUFACTURERS CERTIFY FOR THE ECO-FRIENDLINESS OF THEIR PRODUCTS
  • SUBSTITUTION OF CHEMICALS IN DYEING
    • ACETIC ACID IS USED IN LARGE QUANTITIES FOR DYEING OF POLYESTER, WOOL, SILK, NYLON AND ACRYLIC
    • IT CONTRIBUTES MORE THAN 15% OF COD, BOD LOAD IN EFFLUENT
    • REPLACEMENT BY FORMIC ACID SIGNIFICANTLY LOWERS COD AND BOD LOAD
    • BOMBAY TEXTILE RESEARCH ASSOCIATION HAS DEVELOPED A BUFFER SYSTEM WHICH IS FREE FROM DRAW BACKS OF ACETIC ACID AND EFFECTIVELY MAINTAINS THE DYEBATH pH
  • SUBSTITUTION OF SODIUM HYDROSULPHITE IN VAT DYEING
    • UNIVERSELY USED REDUCING AGENT FOR REDUCTION OF VAT DYES
    • DECOMPOSITION OF SODIUM HYDROSULPHITE IN EFFLUENT LEADS TO FORMATION OF SEVERAL BY PRODUCTS SUCH AS SODIUM SULPHATE, SODIUM BISULPHITE, SODIUM THIOSULPHATE, SODIUM SULPHIDE etc. THESE CONTRIBUTE TO POLLUTION LOAD
    • AN ECO-FRIENDLY PRODUCT BASED ON Fe (II) COMPLEX HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AT IIT DELHI
    • SUBSTITUTION OF SODIUM SULPHIDE BY GLUCOSE IN SULPHUR DYEING
    • SULPHUR DYES ARE INSOLUBLE IN WATER
    • FOR SOLUBILISATION USE OF SODIUM SULPHIDE AND SODA ASH ARE NECESSARY
    • SULPHUR BLACK MOST WIDELY USED
    • AFTER DYEING TOXIC SODIUM SULPHIDE GOES IN TO EFFLUENT UNDER ACIDIC CONDITIONS SODIUM SULPHIDE DECOMPOSES LIBERATING HYDROGEN SULPHIDE WHICH HAS SMELL OF ROTTEN EGGS
    • SULPHUR COMPOUNDS ARE TOXIC TO FISH
    • IT IS THEREFORE NECESSARY TO REPLACE SODIUM SULPHIDE IN SULPHUR DYEING
    • CASE STUDY
    • CENTURY TEXTILE MILL MUMBAI HAS IDENTIFIED AN ECO - FRIENDLY REDUCING AGENT “HYDROL” AS A SUBSTITUTE OF SODIUM SULPHIDE IN SULPHURE DYEING
    • HYDROL IS A BY-PRODUCT IN (IN LIQUID FORM) OF MAIZE STARCH INDUSTRY
    • HYDROL CONTAINS REDUCING SUGAR WHICH UNDER ALKALINE CONDITIONS (NaOH) ACT AS REDUCING AGENT AT DYEING TEMPERATURS ( 80 - 85 O C )
    • HYDROL IS COST EFFECTIVE ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY SUBSTITUTE OF SODIUM SULPHIDE
    • THE RESULTS OF THIS SUBSTITUTION ON EFFLUENT PLANT WERE ENCOURAGING
    • NOT ONLY SULPHIDE IN THE EFFLUENT WAS REDUCED BUT IHE AERATION SYSTEM WORKED BETTER IMPROVING SETTLING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE EFFLUENT
    • THE FOUL SMELL ASSOCIATED WITH SODIUM SULPHIDE IS ELIMINATED
    • AT PRESENT 3500 kg OF COTTON IS BEING DYED EVERY DAY IN THIS WAY
    • NO CAPITAL EXPENDITURE IS INVOLVED IN THIS SUBSTITUTION
    • STUDY AT IIT DELHI
    • A PROJECT IS IN PROGRESS AT DEPT. OF TEXTILE TECHNOLOGY, IIT , DELHI , FOR THE IN HOUSE PREPARATION OF REDUCING SUGAR BY THE HYDROLYSIS OF CARBOHYDRATE BASED PRODUCTS AND ITS USE FOR DYEING OF COTTON WITH SULPHUR DYES
