Energy Conservation in Textile Wet Processing

Wet processing occurs at various stages in the creation of textiles, including pre-treatment (e.g. cleaning, bleaching and heat setting), dyeing, printing and finishing.Wet processing uses relatively homogeneous processes. It is the most energy-intensive aspect of textile production, accounting for 75 to 85 percent of plant utility costs.
While plants that perform wet processing often require energy for dry processes, space conditioning (i.e. heating, cooling and ventilation) and other needs, this post focuses   on the energy use and management in wet processing.

Energy management is an influential determinant of a plant’s energy performance. Best practices in energy management are characterized by a high level of commitment, awareness, organization and action in support of energy management.A major focus of an energy management plan is performing a self-assessment to identify energy savings opportunities.Establishing an energy management plan and implementing cost-effective energy conservation opportunities result in increased profitability and competitive advantage for the manufacturer.Equally significant, reduction in energy use can produce significant environmental improvements.The basic requirements for an Energy management Program in textile wet processing

  1. Why should you, as a homeowner, get assistance in your home energy conservation efforts from an external organization? The best reason that I can think of is that these agencies that specialize in green energy programs have extensive tie ups with partner organizations across the country.
