Advanced environment technologies in the textile industry and integrated systems of waste water pollution controlling and preventing

 


Contract: 31-053/ septembrie 2007

Acronym: ECOTEXENV

Project summary:
The proposed project dwells upon strategic objectives of economically developing the textile sector from Romania, and of the European Platform for the Textile and Clothing Future, by applying the biotechnologies, the clean finishing technologies, the advanced technologies of cleaning waste waters, with effects that are beneficial to the environment and human health protection.
The achieving of this complex project comes from the need of solving one of the most defficult and important chapters, that is the one referring to the environment protection, which Romania has to settle during the post – accession period.
The purpose of the project resides in elaborating and establishing new ecologic textile material finishing technologies, the elaborating of integrated environment systems, monitoring, simulating, advanced cleaning technologies, with a view to complying with the Aquis environment provisions, the diminishing of the risks for the environment, the reducing of the water and power consumption, and possibilities of cleaned water reusing.
The novelty and originality degree of the complex research project resides in creating programmes of modelling and simulating the waste water cleaning processes from the textile sector and the simultaneous going through the following directions – the attenuating of the factors of risk for the environment by establishing and implementing clean finishing technologies, the elaborating of modern technologies of cleaning the waste waters coming from the textile industry by using last generation ion exchanging resins, macro-cyclical compounds belonging to the calyxarene class, physical – chemical methods with ozonization stage, electro-flocculation, new adsorbent materials.

The general objectives:
the elaborating and accomplishing of new ecologic technologies of textile material finishing, the elaborating of environment integrated systems, monitoring, cleaning technologic process simulating, the elaborating of advanced cleaning technologies, with a view to complying with the Aquis community environment provisions, the diminishing of the risks for the environment, the reducing of water and energy consumption, and possibilities for reusing the cleaned waters.

The results estimated to be obtained:
- “Clean” textile finishing technologies and biotechnologies meant for attenuating the factors of risk for the environment, the fitting into the national and European norms for the environment by using multifunctional ecologic chemical auxiliaries, biocatalysts having high action specificity and a low impact over the environment, optical bleaching agents/ecologic dyes with a high exhaustion degree, the cumulating of certain technologic stages, the using of ecologic final finishing products;
- Modern technologies of textile industry waste water cleaning by using: last generation ion exchanging resins, macro - cyclical compounds belonging to the calyxarene class, physical – chemical methods with ozonization stage, electro-flocculation, new adsorbent materials (natural, artificial, synthetic and agricultural and industrial residual products);
- Programmes of modeling and simulating the modern cleaning processes having efficient implications over pollution preventing, the optimizing of the cleaning technologies and possibilities of controlling and automating the cleaning processes;
- Patents;
- Articles published in ISI rated magazines and other speciality nationally and internationally acknowledged journals;
- Papers delivered at national and international symposia and conferences.
