Departments of Fashion and Textile Technology of Bannari Amman Institute of Technology (BIT), Sathyamangalam organised a workshop on 'Green Processing of Textiles and Garments' on 04 September 2010, as a part of the Annual Technical Symposium, Futura 2010.

Mr Sai Ganesh, Country Head of Dystar, Mumbai conducted the workshop, attended by 75 participants from various colleges of the State and 10 research scholars of the Institute. Novel application methods of reactive dyes on cotton with low consumption of water and auxiliaries were discussed during the workshop with highlighting technological advantages of the reactive dyes developed by Dystar in comparison to other manufacturers in the world.

Toxicological, mutatoxicological and lethal effects of dyes and different chemicals used in the wet processing of textile materials and efforts taken by the Dystar to address these issues were also emphasised. Different certification processes associated with green processing and awareness of consumers abroad and efforts taken by industrialised countries in mitigating ecological damages caused by textile industries were discussed.

Dr D Saravanan, Professor and Head of Fashion Technology highlighted the memorandum of understanding signed by the Bannari Amman Institute of Technology with Dystar to the gathering, an effort towards reducing the gap between institute and industry.

Students of BIT are employed by Advanced Academy for Development of Textile Technologists (AADTT), a joint effort of the Alok Industries and Dystar, to provide 'industry ready' students in the field of wet processing of textile materials. Dr A Venkatachalam welcomed the gathering and deliberated on the need for eco-processing and carbon footprinting in the textile industries.
