BATTLE - Best Available Technique for water reuse in TextiLE


The textile sector is highly water demanding and its biggest impact on the environment is related to primary water consumption (80-100 m3 / ton of finished textile) and wastewater discharge (115-175 kg of COD / ton of finished textile, large range of organic chemicals, low biodegradability, colour, salinity).

According to the IPPC directive, the textile BREF should be implemented by all big companies and by SMEs having a production capacity over the IPPC threshold of 10 tons /day. Also smaller companies are interested, since the BREF recommendations are used as a guideline for the overall sector.

The textile BREF contains several BATs for production processes, but only general advices on wastewater treatment and reuse. The closing of the water cycle is not a subject in the BREF and the document does not propose any available technique for the purpose. To give a contribution on this lacking point, the BATTLE project aims at configuring and applying on demonstrative scale a new BAT for low impact water management in textile industry.

 

Objectives
  • Evaluation of applicability from the small-medium enterprises (SMEs) of the textile finishing sector, of the BATs - such as those described in the textile reference documents (BREFs) for the implementation of the European Directive IPPC 96/91/CE;
  • Development and prototypal application of a clean technology for the water reuse, at present not envisaged in the BREFs, to be proposed as reference BAT for SMEs as well for large enterprises.
  • Raised awareness on benefits and opportunities for the European SMEs and decision makers of textile and side sectors from the implementation of the new BAT.
