The textiles and apparels are the basic needs of human beings and to meet the different types of requirements in different arena different types of textiles and apparel industries have been established. This large no of industries creates enormous job opportunities but at the same time the environment, where we live is now a challenging situation because of the production of large quantities of wastes by these industries. Textile industries especially dyeing, printing, finishing units used a massive volume of chemicals, a maximum of which are toxic and carcinogenic. These hazardous chemicals destroying the ecological system of the environment. Application of biochemical engineering or living organisms can be a good substitute for these hazardous, environment damaging chemicals. The main advantages of living organisms, i.e. enzymes are that the enzymes being used in mild conditions, such as medium temperature and neutral or at the low- level acid condition in maximum cases. Again the effluents produce from the biological process is not deteriorating to the environment as like as the effluents of conventional methods. This chapter will focus on the origin, types, composition, and application process of different types of enzymes in the chemical treatment of textile materials. The environmental impact of these biological processes will also be analyzed in this chapter.
Textile coloration refers to dyeing and printing process. Dyeing is the thorough coloration of textiles while printing is the localized application of colorants and chemicals by any method which can produce particular effect of color on the fabric according to the design. This chapter discusses about the both modern technologies that are being utilized widely in textile coloration and future possible sustainable technologies. Conventional aqueous dyeing and printing processes consume a great quantity of water that creates waste water processing difficulties which arise global environmental threat, an alarming concern for sustainable development. On contrast, the scope, processing techniques, required machinery & equipment, advantages and other aspects of the emerging sustainable ecofriendly dyeing technologies like supercritical carbon dioxide dyeing, air dyeing, plasma assisted dyeing, laser assisted dyeing, ultrasound assisted dyeing, microwave assisted dyeing,
