New spin on textile wastewater treatment

Hits: 8

AMSTERDAM – US-based SeaChange Technolgies has put a new spin on the clean-up of textile effluent from dyeing and finishing with a new way to treat wastewater and sludge using vortex separation in a one-step process.

The work was also supported by apparel retailers Bestseller, PVH and C&A.
