Abstract

Availability of water to the industry often becomes prohibitive, both in terms of quality and cost, in coastal areas. This study takes the textile industry and evaluates the prerequisites of water recovery and reuse. In this context, a large spectrum are studied for their water, the general quality of wastewater generated, quality and treatability of reuse wastewater streams, and expected changes in the overall effluent quality after segregation of the recovery wastewater portion.
