TEXTILE AND PAPER

Meeting discharge regulations and improving water footprint with Intelliflux

Challenges

01

Operator training, retention challenges

02

Continuing pressures placed upon system owners to achieve more stringent discharge and recycling objectives

03

Cooling tower/heat exchanger management as waste stream exits facility at high temperatures

04

Varying Waste Water quality with frequent high concentrations of complex dyes and tanning compounds requiring biological treatment. Metals precipitation ( Cr or Sb), Recycle systems and Membrane BioReactors with complex inhibitory compounds affecting treatment efficiency.

05

As highly water intensive segments of the chemical process industry, subject to scrutiny about water footprint. Push for Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) operations.

Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD)

Textile processing is water intensive. Process water in textile processing plants is variable since it is sourced frequently from river waters or variable quality municipal sources. More and more dye houses are deploying on site process water and waste water treatment and reuse plants to improve water footprint. 

Sustainability drives and Global responsibility in large corporations are mandating better water management practices in this industry. 

Brand pressure for reduction of water used / kilogram dyed material from 400 litres to 20 or 30 litres and the pressure to achieve Brand & Industry organization (e.g. SAC, ZDHC) regulated discharge contaminant levels in wastewaters is forcing the textile industry to adopt  aggressive water management and reuse strategies. 

Compliance reporting and validation of discharge regulations are costly and time consuming.
