Project ID: WUB/2022/P1/004

Project Duration: 2022 - 2023

Project Leader: Md. Shamsuzzaman (Department of Textile Engineering)

Project Members: Md. Mostafizur Rahman, Dip Das

Research shows that the oil industry pollutes the most, followed by the textile and garment industries. Due to changes in fast fashion and customer interest, this figure is rising daily. As a result, a tremendous number of dyes, chemicals, etc. are used in the manufacturing of textile goods. Usually, byproducts, wastes, and effluents, like sludge, are dumped into the environment with or without enough treatment. As a result, our atmosphere has been seriously polluted, and textile waste has become heavily contaminated with soil, water, and other environmental factors. This project will explore, evaluate, and understand the environmental sustainability of denim garment washing factories lined with fast fashion and will analyze poor practice areas, associate risks, and identify opportunities to advance the environmental sustainability of denim garment washing factories.
