Summary and Info
The book mainly deals with the basic fundamentals of enzyme technology and their applications in textile processing of both natural and synthetic fibres for enhancing their functional characteristics. With increasing awareness about the environmental concern and usage of eco-friendly agents, today the researchers and scientists are finding ways to treat the textile materials without use of chemicals. To fulfill the space many researchers are developing the enzyme-based products for industrial applications to enhance the product functional properties and uses. The book is broadly divided into eight chapters namely enzyme technology, industrial enzymes, bioprocessing of natural fibres, synthetic fibres, enzymes in textile effluents, safety and precaution in handling enzymes, bioprocessing of organic cotton and enzyme processing for hygienic and health care textiles. Processing of cotton fabrics in single bath and continuous operations of desizing, scouring and bleaching processes and their effluent loads have been discussed both enzyme- and chemical-based wet processing. This book also describes the future scope of enzyme technology for hygienic and healthcare textile product development and safety aspects of handling enzymes in the textile industries. This book would be very useful to undergraduate and postgraduate students of textile technology, fashion technology, textiles chemistry and textile processing; researchers working in academic and industrial R&D, and colleges and universities offering textile technology and biotechnology programs. In short, this book presents a refreshingly original approach in emphasizing the interface between enzyme technology and textile materials apart from dealing with diverse methods and techniques used in industrial practices. We hope that it would provide guidelines to researchers, scientists and industrialists as well as students a useful source of information in the important field of textile processing through enzyme technology.
