By favoring circular economies, the sector’s overall impact is diminished. Control discharges, mainly into the water, at production sites is an essential pillar of these manufacturers’ environmental strategy.

The textiles industry uses multiple processes and products to achieve market demands. Each step tends to produce a specific effluent:

  • Textile fiber production: pretreatment by successive washes, spinning with lubricating agents...
  • Textile production: weaving, mesh, with lubricators and cohesive agents
  • Ennobling: bleaching, dyeing by absorption or impregnation, printing in the aqueous phase, and particular properties (bactericides, waterproofing, etc...)

Effluents — mainly loaded with dyes, surfactants, and organic molecules that are not readily biodegradable — constitute a complex matrix.

We support textile manufacturers by treating these charged effluents and offering innovative and custom technologies:
