About the book

The book is about waste from the textile industry and textile waste. The waste from the textile industry can be classified as below:

- Exhaust air
- Wastewater
- Solid waste

In textile mills boilers, diesel generators, stenters etc. produce pollutants that are discharged into the air. The pollutants contain suspended particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, oxide of nitrogen gas, etc. from the weaving, spinning and finishing process.

The textile industry consumes large amounts of water and auxiliary chemicals primarily in the dyeing and finishing operations. While many of these chemicals become part of the product, some are removed from the fabric, ending up in wastewater. About 12 % of synthetic dyes used each year during processing operations in the textile industry are lost and 20 % of these lost dyes enter the environment through wastewater.

Primary solid wastes from the textile industry are scraps of fabric and yarn etc. The other solid wastes are pumice stones, chemical storage drums, cardboard reels for storing fabric and cones used to hold yarns for manufacturing. The end products of textile industry are common waste in daily life

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sandra Maljavac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
