Find out how enzymes can be the answer to your concerns about textile processing safety

Biotechnology in Textile Processing examines recent trends, techniques, and developments in the finishing and processing of natural fibers. The industry’s foremost experts present current research findings on textile biotechnology, bio-treatment, and waste water management, with an emphasis on developing environmentally friendly production technologies that use enzymatic processes. This vital book examines bio-technical methods that save chemicals, energy, and improve the quality of the final product, using enzyme applications that act on both cellulose- and protein-based textiles.

Biotechnology in Textile Processing is a comprehensive guide to basic and applied research for scientists, researchers, consultants, and academics working with research and development institutes, and agriculture and textile universities. The book explores methods of developing quality standards for assessing flax fiber through the use of physical, chemical, and instrumental techniques, evaluates the potential of enzyme activities on the properties of textile fibers, and provides an in-depth understanding of the structure-function relationships of textile fibers.

Biotechnology in Textile Processing examines:
enzyme-retted flax
enzymatic scouring for better textile properties of knitted fabrics
combined bioscouring and bleaching of cotton fibers
important factors for successful enzymatic scouring
designing wood fiber morphology and mechanical properties of fiberboards
laccase catalyzed indigo carmine transformation
integrated enzymatic pre-treatment of cotton fabrics
production of cellulase free pectinases for bioscouring
enzymatic finishes of wool fabrics
analytical methods for chitosan
the influence of enzymatic pre-treatment on color of bleached and dyed flax fibers
the effects of ultrasound on the performance of industrial enzymes used in cotton bio-preparation and bio-finishing applicationsBiotechnology in Textile Processing is an essential resource for scientists and consultants working at R&D institutes and universities, practitioners working in textile engineering, enzymology, biotechnology, and environmental protection, producers and processors of textiles, and for students.
