Today's world is experiencing acute energy shortage. The textile finishing process is the highest energy-consuming segment. Manufacturing a single cotton shirt consumes approximately 2,800-3,000 litres of water.

Wet finishing process consumes the highest amount of water amongst all finishing processes. Considering the global water shortage problem many countries has tightened their norms and regulations for textile finishing processes, in order to reduce wastewater problem.
