About this book

This data- and factbook contains state-of-the-art information on the environmental aspects of 2,500 chemicals currently used in the textile industry worldwide. The authors have worked closely with industrial practitioners and managers of textile plants to ensure that only state-of-the-art science and technology are included. The texts preceding the extended tables present comprehensive overviews of the processes presently in use, as well as of important and relevant governmental regulations. The data sheet for each chemical spans carefully selected, relevant environmental and production-related data. In addition, textile engineers and specialists involved in the risk assessment and control of these chemicals will find that the overviews given on each chemical, its field of application and its function in production processes make this volume a valuable tool for their frequent reference.
