New Method Could Treat Textile Dye Discharge

The textile industry’s toxic dye discharge may be reduced, according to Swedish scientists, who have developed a new technique for cleaning contaminated water using crystals made of cellulose.

Using wood-based nanocrystals, researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg claim their method can easily and affordably remove 80% of the dye pollutants in wastewater.

The study was done in association with the Malaviya National Institute of Technology in Jaipur, India, where wastewater from the textile industry often contains dye pollutants.
