Electron beam facility to treat textile polluted water

Apr '09
The textile and agreement industry in Sri Lanka has always been in the forefront of eco-friendly and sustainable methods of manufacturing. Many of their companies like Brandix and MAS holdings have received innumerable awards for creating clothing with eco-friendly processes.

Taking the process further, the Atomic Energy Commission in close cooperation with the Central Environmental Authority is conducting a feasibility study on treating the deadly chemical water released by the textile dyeing units with means of an Electron Beam Facility.

The International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna has agreed to provide technical assistance for technology transfer and an expert, Dr. Bumsoo Han from Korea is in Sri Lanka to conduct a feasibility study of the project and to create awareness among industrialists about this technology.

Dr. Bumsoo Han was earlier associated with a pilot plant for treating 1,000m3/day of dyeing wastewater with e-beam which had been constructed and under operation since 1998 in Daegu, Korea together with the biological treatment facility.

The Electron Beam facility basically treats the polluted water with help of e-beam and helps treat water with increased reliability and helps in decolorizing and destructive oxidation of organic impurities in wastewater with reduction in treatment time and an increase in flow rate limit by 30-40 percent.
