The textile industry has been severely impacted across the world due to COVID-19 pandemic. During the lockdown, there were only electricity and raw material related expenses that were not being incurred as there was no production happening, but the rest of all expenses were a direct loss to the industry owners. And now that the lockdown has been lifted, the textile industry is looking at the resumption of production at the earliest. However, according to a recent survey by the International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF), on a global scale, current orders continue to be down on average by more than -40%. On that account, it is surely not going to be smooth and easy for them going ahead.

Based on a survey conducted by the International Labour Organization(ILO), 54% of the factories surveyed expect a decrease in their revenues by 20% in 2020. And, it may take a minimum of four to six months or maybe more than that for them to get the business back to normal. Therefore, we at Roserve are extending a helping hand to the textile industry right from the beginning to help them get back on their feet.

Where does the Textile Industry need our assistance?

  • From cleaning of raw material to the flushing steps in the production process, the amount of water retention and usage in the textile industry is in huge quantities. 
  • And these processes lead to the generation of wastewater that needs to be filtered free from fat, oil, colour and other chemicals, for making it reusable in different stages of production. 
  • Every enterprise generates different kinds of wastewater and the treatment of textile wastewater must be done on a large scale, because of the several steps involved.

The Process

The textile industry has three stages of recycling wastewater:

  • Primary Treatment - The first step in the textile industry’s wastewater treatment is to mix and equalize the wastewater streams that are discharged at different times and different intervals from different stages in the processes. 
  • Secondary Treatment - This stage involves the wastewater to be processed through a clariflocculator and settling tank. This physio-chemical treatment is followed by a biological treatment process, which further reduces BOD and COD values.
  • Tertiary Treatment - This phase involves the removal of residual organic colour compounds by adsorption and dissolved solids by membrane filtration. The wastewater is treated with ozone or other oxidizing agents to destroy the contaminants.

How can Roserve help?

Being a business enterprise ourselves in the field of wastewater treatment, we understand the difficulties being faced by the textile industry in getting back to starting its operations. Therefore, we are introducing our very efficient and convenient - Plug & Play Recycling Model, which we have come up with after thorough evaluation and research.

Benefits of our Plug & Play Recycling Model

  • Most of the shipment for many textile industries went on hold due to the lockdown. But, now that the lockdown has lifted, they are restarting the deliveries of their shipment and looking forward to producing more stock. Therefore, we are providing ready to use wastewater treatment equipment.
  • As the industry owners are already suffering from the financial crunch, we wanted to reduce their burden. Therefore, there is no requirement for initial CAPEX.
  • As soon as the textile industry resumes production, we can immediately start the mobilization process to ensure minimum time lag for wastewater management.
  • There will be a flexible method for treating the wastewater, where you will only pay for the quantity of treated wastewater.
  • And, your industry can avail all these benefits with easy and flexible rental options.

All these benefits come with the implementation of our advanced treatment methods:

  • Adsorption - This process helps in removing colour, pesticides, phenols, cyanides, organic dyes, and other soluble organic pollutants from effluent that cannot be treated by conventional treatment methods. 
  • Ion Exchange - This process helps in removing inorganic salts and some specific organic anionic components such as phenol. Ion exchange materials can swap soluble ions and cations with electrolyte solutions.
  • Membrane Filtration - This process involves two types of membrane-based filtration techniques: Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration.

This innovative way of treating wastewater will not only help the textile industry in managing its finances and running its operations smoothly but will also be a ray of hope in this time of distress for the industry owners.
