The article focuses on effluent treatment methods for textile processing. Two of the primary concerns of the textile industry are the large volumes of required water for dyeing and preparation, and waste generation. Biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), color and heavy metals are used to characterize textile industry wastewater. Wastewater treatment can be undertaken through biological treatment, chemical precipitation, ultrafiltration, carbon adsorption and oxidation with ozone.
