Tirupur: Treatment of effluents generated in the dyeing process has always been a problem that the knitwear industry in Tirupur had failed to tackle. Providing a ray of hope to the industrial fraternity, the NIFT-TEA College of Knitwear Fashion here, promoted by Tirupur Exporters Association, has come out with an ‘Eco-green industrial evaporator' to treat the concentrated brine in the dyeing effluents.
The methodology was evolved following a detailed study conducted by the research wing at the Institute comprising representatives of industry and technocrats as well as officials from Textiles Committee under the Union Ministry of Textiles on an advisory role.
NIFT-TEA Institute sources told The Hindu that ‘Eco-green industrial evaporator' plant being set up on a commercial basis would be commissioned very soon.
“The pilot testing of the system has given satisfying results pertaining to the evaporation of concentrated brine” sources said.The plant, to come up under the ‘Green Textile Movement' initiative of the Institute, would be attaining significance since the textile entrepreneurs in Tirupur cluster had already encountered enormous difficulties to treat the brine owing to inherent flaws in a conventional mechanical evaporator.
The institute sources pointed out that the garments made of the process could fetch premium prices in the global market since the entire mechanism followed ‘green manufacturing techniques'.
