In this study textile processing operations are reviewed in terms of all relevant factors and a systematic approach to relate to the pollutional characteristics is developed. The methodology is based on a matrix format. Through the development of this approach, more realistic pollution evaluations can be performed and the subcategories that need to be redefined by countries according to their own circumtances can be identified more easily.
