Abstract

Project aims at developing of enzyme and microbial based biotechnical processes for treatment and recycling of dyehouse effluents to improve competitivity of European textile industry against Far East countries by using new, eco-efficient technologies with less environmental impact resulting in lower environmental costs. With regard to quantity, textile finishing industry is the most important effluent discharger compared to other branches. Present sewage treatment mainly is end of pipe technique, where mixed waste water is treated. Especially dyehouse effluents contribute to effluent charges making them the most cost-intensive waste water of textile industry. Biotechnical treatment and recycling of those partial waters is more effective than of mixed effluents. Implementation of biotechnical methods into treatment of textile effluents will save water resources, minimise effluent, improve quality of work, thus save EU as textile production site.
