The report gives reliable data to enable EPA to determine the need for developing control technology for air and water pollution emissions from cotton and synthetic woven fabric finishing plants. The data supplements that in an earlier state-of-the-art report on the same subject (PB-271 986) and stems from actual sampling and analysis plus literature sources not available when the earlier report was published. Plants processing cotton and synthetic fiber blends are included in the study, since finishing of blends includes treatments similar to those used on the pure fibers. Wool and knit fabric finishing were excluded from the study since the operations involved are distinctly different from those for cotton and synthetics. Finishing operations for cotton and synthetics include general treatments such as bleaching, dyeing, and printing and associated operations such as desizing, setting, and drying. Specialized treatments, such as flameproofing, mildewproofing, mercerizing, embossing, and wrinkleproofing are also included.
