French support to help textile sector go green

An agency of the French Government has offered technical and financial support to the textile sector in Bangladesh in a project aimed at ensuring 'green production' processes in the textile sector.

Callebaut de Blicquy (CDB) and two other French companies Dewailly Conseils and L'Eau Pure, will provide the technical and training support to Purbani Fabrics Ltd and Comfit Composite Knit Ltd.

The test-project will entail installing environment friendly and cost efficient machinery in these two companies and will be implemented for a period of 12 months starting from early 2010.

CDB will install Optilab, which will identify chemicals responsible for pollution, and a Submerged Bio-Reactor (SMBR) that allows very efficient reduction of the final effluent pollution.

The Optilab is expected to reduce dyeing time and the quantity of chemicals by 25 percent, which would reduce pollution by 30 percent, while the SMBR will reduce the suspension of solid materials by 99 percent.

The project aims at validating the technologies proposed by the French companies to effectively reduce the industrial pollution through integrated solutions. The purpose of the project is to demonstrate the efficiency of the devices Optilab (pre-treatment technology) and SMBR (effluent treatment) in the context of Bangladesh textile industry.

It is expected that once the pilot projects are put in operation as a test case towards cost effectiveness of abatement of pollution, the textile processing sub-sector will hopefully be highly optimistic to go for those cost effective plants.

This technology combines biological purification in a fix bed (aeration process) to biomass separation with clarification. It allows a very efficient reduction of the final effluent pollution.

By means of using the Optilab, there is expected to be a reduction of 25 percent in the dyeing process, a fall of 25 percent of the quantity of chemicals used, dye-stuff consumption to fall by 5 percent and that of water by 15 percent and pollution is expected to be down by 30 percent.

In using the SMBR, a reduction of 95 percent is expected in Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), fall of 90 percent of Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Solid Material in Suspension (MSS) will reduce by 99 percent.
