This stud provides a scientific methodology for the recycle and reuse of industrial wastewaters. Textile finishing industry has high water use and wastewater generation. Water use should be decreased by the recycle and reuse of wastewater. In this context a typical knit fabric finishing mill producing 750 m(3) wastewater per day, has been investigated to present an example for the presented methodology and it is concluded that 30% reduction of water could be possible in cotton and viscose rayon knit fabric finishing operations.
