Among many pollution-creating industries, textile has a larger share in terms of its impact with regard to noise, air and effluent. It is, therefore, felt worthwhile to study the ecological hazards associated with various operations of textiles. In this paper, pollution arising out of noise and air is discussed. Areas of concern and their appropriate rectifying procedures are also taken into account.
Ecological degradation happens in natural fibre right from cultivation to finishing of ultimate product. Prominent parameters and possible package of corrective measures are highlighted. Synthetic fibre industry is not an exception to environmental pollution and therefore various pollution-creating activities are pointed out. Management of various textile wastes is also mentioned in this paper.
