ABSTRACT

 

Textile industry generates substantial quantity of effluent, which is mostly treated by chemical and biological treatment processes. These conventional treatment processes may not be very effective for the removal of specific pollutants such as colour and the dissolved solids. Application of the advance treatment technologies and processes, besides reducing these pollutants, facilitates recovery of water and salt from the effluents. The paper covers effluent treatment practices, limitations and the scope for further improvements.
