ZDHC Programme Releases Findings of Textile Industry Wastewater Quality Review

January 14, 2016

INTERNATIONAL - The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Programme released its review of wastewater discharge guidance in the current textile industry. The research gathered shows a wide range in discharge regulations and measuring methods that differ from nation to nation, between guidelines published by brands and amongst multi-brand consortia.
Keeping the goal of zero discharge in mind, the ZDHC programme will work with key collaborators to formulate a discharge guideline that will update widely used wastewater quality guidelines. New wastewater quality guidelines will focus on ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL)-listed chemical substances and conventional wastewater parameters equally to reduce or eliminate the risk of releasing MRSL-banned substances. A stepwise approach begins with adoption of the ZDHC MRSL to control chemical input.
