Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Textile dyeing and finishing serves as a link between weaving and apparel industries, which is an important means of endowing the textile with color and function, as well as an important part in the whole textile industry chain. Recently, influenced by the global warming and the increasing pressure of environment protection, new features have come up in the dyeing and finishing industry. The concept of energy conservation and emission reduction and ecological green and sustainable development has been deeply rooted in people's minds and is becoming a new label and position for the development of the dyeing and finishing industry. Based on this, this issue solicits contributions of papers on the newly developed dyeing and finishing technology, with topics including but not limited to the following: ecological dyeing and finishing technology, such as digital ink-jet printing technology; supercritical carbon dioxide dyeing technology; salt-free dyeing technology for reactive dyes; low-temperature pretreatment technology and less water or anhydrous dyeing technology of polyester fabric; ecological dyeing and finishing auxiliaries, such as extraction and application of natural dyes; structure design and application of green ecological auxiliaries; and textile biotechnology, such as the application of enzymes in textile printing and dyeing process. This issue aims to provide new ideas to address the common technical problems in the textile dyeing and finishing process, which result in high pollution, high energy consumption, and high wastewater discharge.

Disposal of reactive dye contaminants in surface waters causes serious health risks to the aquatic living bodies and populations adjacent to the polluted water sources. This study investigated the applicability of banana peels to remediate water contamination with reactive dyes used in the textile industry. A set of batch experiments was conducted using a standard dye solution to determine optimum adsorption parameters, and these parameters were used for the removal of dyes from actual wastewater. Fitting experimental data into the isotherm and kinetic models suggested monolayer dye adsorption with chemisorption rate-limiting step. The maximum adsorption found from modeling results was 28.8 mg/g. Fourier transformed infrared (FTIR) spectra revealed the existence of hydroxyl, amine and carboxylic groups, contributing to high adsorption of dye molecules onto the adsorbent surface. About 93% of the dyes from the standard solution were removed at optimum conditions (pH—7.0, initial dye concentration—100 mg/L, contact time—60 min, and adsorbent dose—0.5 g) while this value was 84.2% for industrial textile wastewater. This difference was mainly attributed to the composition difference between the solutions. However, the removal efficiency for actual wastewater is still significant, indicating the high potentiality of banana peel removing dyes from textile effluent. Furthermore, desorption studies showed about 95% of banana peel can be recovered with simple acid-base treatment. Full article
