Non-Conventional Textile Waste Water Treatment


Editor: Ahmed El Nemr
Series: Pollution Science, Technology and Abatement

The textile industry is amongst the major contributors to environmental pollution but it is very important for a nation’s economy because clothes are a basic need of human beings. In particular, the use of synthetic dyes contributes to pollution due to the large amount of contaminated wastewater generated during the dyeing process. The purpose of this review book is to provide the latest research to find out an effective, non-conventional method for the treatment of textile wastewater.
