Sustainable Manufacturing and Environmental Pollution Programme

Wastewater Treatment

SAFECONOMY – Reinventing the Textile Circular Economy

The University of Northumbria, along with its consortium partners, proposes to address the release of hazardous chemicals into the environment from textiles manufacturing wastewater through piloting an innovative Molecular Distortion Technology for treating textile wastewater in Pakistan, a textiles manufacturing hotspot. 

Optimizing a textile manufacturing facility as demonstration site to reuse water and enhance wastewater management

The textile industry faces environmental challenges such as excessive water consumption and wastewater pollution. Bangladesh’s textile manufacturing industry has announced sustainability goals, including reducing its blue water footprint and meeting wastewater guidelines. This project aims to showcase that this goal can be realised and address social and environmental water impacts in textile manufacturing.

Advanced wastewater treatment technology for the plastics recycling industry

This project is geared towards microplastic pollution mitigation through treating the wastewater produced through the plastic recycling process. That is, an innovative solution that will isolate and separate the pollutants from the water and ensure that the refuse is within the acceptable standards of purity that will not cause any bleak social and environmental impact once released.
