The report gives results of an evaluation of the applicability and economics of emissions control technologies for the abatement of volatile organic compounds emanating from cotton and synthetic textile finishing plants. A survey of the state-of-the-art and control technologies design and costing preceded the evaluation. Carbon bed adsorption with solvent recovery has been identified as the most viable of all technologies, and fluidized-bed carbon adsorption has the best potential to suit the variable operating conditions encountered in textile manufacturing. Potential cost benefits appear attractive.
