Pollution Prevention in the Textile Industry: Chapter 02: Pollution Prevention and the Textile Industry
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 2 of 7 for this video. The US EPA defines pollution prevention as the use of materials, processes or practices that reduce or eliminate the creation of pollutants or waste at the source in the production process. This is more effective than "end of the pipe" solutions. Manufacturers that reduce the use of raw materials are able to use these resources for further product development. Pollution prevention in the textile industry may involve product changes, but can also be realized through changes in the production process.
