The various processes used in the textile processing industry contribute to a major portion to the environmental pollution. Textile wet processing industry usually generates large volume of effluents, which are complex in nature and variable both in regards to quantity and characteristics. The wastewater from the textile industry is known to be strongly coloured presenting large amount of suspended solids, pH broadly fluctuating, high temperature, besides high chemical oxygen demand (COD).
Colour is also a psychologically very important factor in water pollution. The discharge of highly coloured waste is not only aesthetically displeasing, but it also interferes with the transmission of light and upsets the biological processes which may then cause the direct destruction of aquatic life present in the receiving stream.
Need of innovations for pollution reduction has arrived due to :
- Increased environmental awareness
- Government legislations
- Global competition
Various attempts are made to reduce the pollution load. Rossari is conscious of it's commitment to the environment. It is our corporate policy to serve the interests of both man and environment together and always complementary of each other to the betterment of everyone around us.
