The next international VDMA webtalk on 9 September 2020 (2 pm - 4 pm CEST) will focus on Wastewater reduction and treatment in textile dyeing and finishing.

Facing environmental and economic requirements, textile manufacturers need to implement wastewater treatment technologies in their factories, VDMA says. Accordingly, the presenters and their topics will be:

Bertram Stetter: Airflow technology from Fong's Europe leads to the lowest water consumption per kilogramme of textile in discontinuous dyeing processes by transporting textile goods with air.

Karl Hesse, Körting Hannover, will explain how the operating costs of your mercerising process and the ecological footprint can be reduced at the same time. Savings of more than US$ one million per year are realistic and the pay-back time is less than one year, the company says.

Dr. Norbert Müller-Blanke, TIA Technologies for Industrial Wastewater Treatment, will focus on the necessity, benefits and operating requirements of wastewater treatment technologies.

After the presentations, the experts will be available to answer participants' questions.

Registration is via this link (no participation fee).
