Weaving Innovative Water Technology for Cleaner Textile Discharge
Some of the key challenges Textile manufacturers face include stringent discharge regulations, rising cost of freshwater, water shortage and hard-to-treat contaminants in wastewaters. Suspended solids, Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), as well as strong colours and high pH values are examples of contaminants that are difficult to treat. Membrane technology not only promises high removal efficiencies, but also allows reuse of water.
Reuse of treated textile wastewater can be utilised in many water intensive processes such as rinsing, washing and bleaching. Finer processes such as printing and coating of textile products, particularly in lighter colours, require higher grade of pure water achievable by reverse osmosis (RO) process.
Hyflux’s engineering expertise and technology in textile wastewater treatment and reuse allow manufacturers to save cost and time with reliable systems. Offering a full range of customised solutions for textile manufacturers, Hyflux has good track records in helping manufacturers with tough textile wastewater treatment using the innovative Containerised MBR systems.
