Textile processing has been a major industry in India. Enzymes are now in for good. These enzymes give major environmental benefits like reduced water quantity for processes, less water used hence lesser toll on Effluent treatment. Also the effluent generated contains simple molecular end-products which do not need very sophisticated downstream processing treatments. Owing to all these benefits the process becomes cost-effective.
From the processing point of view the results a very specific due to specific action of enzymes, lesser number of washings required hence the processing time is also reduced. All in all the use of enzymes in Textile industry will distinctly be expedient in the years to come.
