Removing complex pollutants from used textile production water to save resources and energy, and protect the local environment
The textile industry relies on water-intensive processes
In particular, water is used for cleaning raw materials and as part of the dyeing process
Production relies on many different substances, such as synthetic dyes, solvents, resins, caustic soda and bleach. These substances can end up in used water streams and are difficult to treat.
Project Ô has developed the PHOTO.CAT unit to treat water used in textile production
It will remove dyes from used water and it can help increase the amount of water that can be reused in a textile production factory
By using PHOTO.CAT and nanofiltration technologies, textile producers have control over the levels of sodium sulphate in the water that is reused in the dyeing process.
PHOTO.CAT is a water filtration photocatalytic unit
It can be used at any textile production factory
PHOTO.CAT unit benefits include:
A PHOTO.CAT unit was first installed in Croatia at a textile production factory
Galeb d.d. is a textile company in Croatia
They are building a new water treatment plant as part of their factory development. Their goal is to achieve high standards of water management using a circular water economy approach.
