Apart from cotton cultivation and the production of dyestuffs and optical brighteners, textile finishing – also called textile wet processing – is one of the environmental hotspots. Practically all inorganic and most of the organic (more than 90 %) chemical compounds are discharged with wastewater, making it the dominating emission mass stream from textile finishing. Given these environmental problems and the increasing global water scarcity, need to avoid, reduce or recycle textile wastewater is of greatest importance.
The symposium “Integrated Best Available Wastewater Management in the Textile Sector” will focus on the problems outlined above and discuss available solutions. Special attention will be given to the topics of careful consumption of resources, minimization of water usage, energy efficiency, and international standards and knowledge exchange.
The Symposium is organised by the Partnership for SustainableTextiles and the Tongji University Shanghai, in cooperation the University of Stuttgart. The target audience of the symposium are academics as well as interested representatives from textile finishing industries, retailers and brands and authorities from national, regional and local level. The event will be held in English and Mandarin. Participants will receive a certificate for joining the symposium. There will be a participation fee of 1500 RMB, payable by either cash or card at site.

For registration, please provide the registration information including name, organization, position, email address and the mode of payment to contact: before 22 March 2019.
