A study has been made of waste treatment methods and practices used in the textile industry. Information was obtained from people working in the textile processing industry, designing waste treatment plants, and enforcing state and federal regulations on waters discharged to streams and natural reservoirs. To supplement this information the literature was reviewed and an annotated bibliography prepared. The report contains sections on the following: characteristics of textile waste, waste treatment techniques, treatment methods in use, effects of textile wastes on receiving waters, the cost of waste treatment operations, and state and federal regulations governing discharge waters. Areas of needed research are recommended. The annotated bibliography contains references on synthetic fiber manufacturing wastes, detergent waste treatment, instrumentation, plant design, water treatment for plant use as well as articles pertaining specifically to textile waste treatment.
