Highly polluting dyeing & printing capacities to go
Mar '09
According to sources close to authorities in the Ministry of Industry and Information, China will push to eliminate for good a large number of industrial plants, mainly from the textile processing sectors like fibre, yarn, fabric dyeing and printing activities related to fabrics.

This is being done, since these are highly polluted and low on technology industries. By 2011, the country plans to get rid of nearly 7.5 billion meters of dyeing and printing capability which are high in energy and water consumption and low on the technology front.

This, 7.5 billion meters, currently accounts for 15 percent of printing and dyeing production capacity in China. It will also purge nearly 2.3 million tons of chemical fibre dyeing production capacity and which now accounts for about 10 percent of fibre dyeing capacity.

From 2009 to 2011, China's total economic output of textile industry is expected to maintain steady growth and added industrial value of large textile enterprises will increase from 812.6 billion Yuan in 2007 to 1200 billion Yuan, an average annual increase of 10 percent.

Total exports are projected to touch US $240 billion by 2011, again an average annual increase of 8 percent, but growth of industries, low on technology and high in water and energy consumption is expected to be kept in control.
