A comparison of environmental impacts between fibre variants and contribution analysis of agriculture and industrial subsystem
Konakalla Veerabhadra Rao and Dr. Vikrant Chauhan
Awareness of the environmental issues caused by wastewater discharge is crucial, especially in light of industrialization. Pre-treatment, dyeing/printing, finishing, and other technologies are all used in the processes of textile printing and dyeing. Pollution of the water resources is a result of all finishing processes. Additionally, depending on the situation, singeing, mercerizing, base reduction, and other procedures should have been carried out prior to dyeing or printing. India's textile sector has a significant impact on the country's economic development. The expansion of the textile industry has an effect on not only the domestic economy of a nation but also the international economy and the knowledge transfer between nations. However, the textile sector also produces a significant amount of trash in the form of discarded fibres, sludge, and chemically contaminated rivers. When mixed with these natural resources, the chemically contaminated textile effluent affects their quality and concurrently depends on habitats and the environment. Due to the issue with solid and liquid waste, the textile industry is having serious issues with environmental pollution. Therefore, the textile businesses and researchers are concentrating on reducing textile effluent and developing substitute effective treatment methods that don't harm the environment. As a result, the current literature review focuses primarily on the various wastewater treatment approaches and their benefits. Additionally, the study's main objective is to outline techniques for reducing environmental waste and effectively using reclaimed water with a zero wastewater management strategy. The analysis also advises using solid wastes after wastewater treatment in other industries, such as building, to prepare low-grade tiles and possibly bricks in place of cement as an alternative strategy for reducing textile waste.
