This manual contains information relating to the design of air, water and solids pollution abatement systems for the textile industry. It is intended for use by process design engineers, consultants, and engineering companies active in the design or upgrading of textile waste treatment facilities. This manual outlines typical operations used in the manufacture of various types of fabrics as well as sources and strengths of wastewater, air pollutants and solid waste. Design information relative to pollution abatement includes in-plant control measures, equipment selection factors and emerging technology. The major effort of this manual is directed toward design information of those techniques most widely used and fully demonstrated for pollution control in the textile industry. Advanced technology, pilot plant or demonstration data of presumptive operations, although addressed, is not covered in detail. Water pollution control in the textile industry is the major subject covered in this manual. Portions of the manual include comprehensive descriptions and analyses of the various wastewater sources and provide the basic data for facility design. Inplant controls are described for reducing the quantity and/or strength of the wastewater, and waste treatment designs are defined.
