This is the fifth book in the ‘Handbook for Textile Processors Series’. In this book I have tried to give the processing details for Fibres, Yarn and Knitted Fabrics. In normal text books general theories of dyeing and processes for various dyes on different fibres are dealt but not of different substrate forms. Even though theory of dyeing may remain same but procedures and processes may vary according to substrate form and machineries used. Here I have explained the specific processes for dyeing of Fibres, Yarn and Knitted fabrics. All the processes are given with explanations and process graphs wherever necessary, and notes, precautions and care to be taken for the best results. This book will be especially helpful for the processors in the Yarn Dyeing and Knitted processing fields and students.

The various topics related to the title are divided into 10 sections. Chapter 1 provides a snapshot of energy conservation globally and defines the important parameters in energy. It outlines the need for energy conservation by highlighting the aspects of power transmission in India and the deficiency in its capacity. Chapter 2 discusses the types of energy sources and the conversion technologies to produce electricity from such sources. Chapter 3 briefly addresses the various processes in the textile value chain and draws attention to the energy use patterns prevalent in these processes. Chapter 4 highlights the various energy conservation measures available to conventional / modern spinning plants and the benefits of adopting the same. Chapter 5 provides information about the energy consumption trends in weaving preparatory and weaving process, focussing on both shuttle and shuttleless looms. Chapter 6 discusses the energy saving opportunities in various stages of wet chemical processing. The savings potential by means of combined processes, cold-pad-batch treatment, bath recovery, counter-flow washing, use of enzymes in treatment processes, application of automatic preparation and dispensing of chemicals and dyes etc. have been discussed in detail. The influence of advancements in textile wet processing technologies on energy conservation has been discussed. Chapter 7 briefly outlines the energy saving potential in manmade fibre production industry. Chapter 8 provides information on the energy conservation techniques available to ancillary departments like electrical, compressor, humidification and lighting systems. Chapter 9 states the various performance indicators of energy conservation and scientifically narrates the method of conducting an audit. Chapter 10 provides information about the global environmental issues and the impact on environment due to process wastes from Textiles. The book will provide a broad framework to the understanding of various textile processes and the energy savings attainable due to implementation of energy saving technologies and would prove useful to a spectrum of readers, encompassing students, researchers, industrialists and academicians, as well as practicing professionals in the textile industry.

Sustainability in every aspect of our life is presently a Global buzzword, and textile chemical processing is not an exception to it. Due to heightened awareness of textile and apparels consumers about environmental protection and social accountability, textile chemical processing has come under the intense inspecting lens of sustainability. In turn, this pressure of consumers has been reflected in Brands pushing the agenda of sustainable textile processing at every stage of the supply chain in manufacturing. Naturally, the scope of this book thus has been on this newfound focus-Sustainable Textile Chemical Processing - to which all of us stakeholders have to turn to. This book is an attempt to enlighten the prospective readers- students, textile faculty, industry professionals and owners, management personnel, fashion designers, investors, enthusiastic consumers in learning mode, freelance blog writers, etc. in varied concepts of sustainability. The initial chapters depict the importance of bio-chemicals, sustainable natural dyes and innovative microbial dyes. To optimize energy, dyes, chemicals and utility usage, the concept of combined dyeing and finishing using functional dyes is discussed. Also, it discusses, under the lens of sustainability, the present-day chemicals used and suggests in detail, the substitutes wherever needed, which are eco-friendly. These include innovative textile auxiliaries with natural origin, herbal finishing agents, etc. Denim processing is covered in an independent chapter; so also water and energy conservation, Right-first-time (RFT) processing and effluent management. A chapter on water-less chemical processing and application of dry processes has also been included. Finally, how does one certify products as eco-friendly? Thus comes a special chapter on standards related to sustainable textile chemical processing, certification, etc. Although significant importance is given to various technical and environmental aspects of sustainability, the ethical commitment remains the bedrock of the success of sustainability. Hence, this critical aspect is discussed in depth in a special chapter on emphasizing the role of ethical commitment and ethical guidelines for sustainable textile chemical processing. In short, the book talks about the technical aspects, social and environmental sustainability aspects and ethical issues in a comprehensive manner in a holistic way which will immensely benefit the prospective readers. It is also a humble attempt to guide the industry and all the stakeholders to take concrete steps towards sustainability, which is, in fact, long overdue. We owe it to our future generation.
