Transforming textile wastewater

Treatment of wastewater is a huge issue in the textile industry. Conventional dyes in textile effluents often require expensive proceedures in order to reach a satisfactory level of treatment. This is mainly due to the diverse composition of the effluent streams




The team is looking at designing and optimizing an adsorption column for textile industry effluent stream. Our design would be receiving textile effluent from a textile industry, passing it through an adsorption column where the dyes contained in the effluent are adsorbed using adsorbents. The design does not seek to purify the water to the point that it would be good for consumption.
