The article focuses on the wastewater treatment in the textile and dye industry in the U.S. It states that the removal of dye from the wastewater can be accomplished with a mixture of ultraviolet(UV) and hydrogen peroxide. Moreover, it notes that the degradation ratio of hydrogen peroxide was around 100% at 60 minutes.
