Final Report - WASHCONTROL (Development of an online-sensor-based WashControl system and water recycling for use in textile dyeing houses and laundries)

Project ID: 5864
Funded under: FP6-SME


Washing and rinsing processes represent very important and cost intensive steps in small and medium dyeing houses and laundries (SMEs). However, they are mostly performed under weak process conditions and without any control due to lack of suitable sensors.

The EU-funded WASHCONTROL project aimed to develop an innovative, online, sensor based system for discontinuous dyeing ranges and laundries, in order to allow for significant water savings and promote cost effective water recycling through membrane technology.

This final activity report provides an overview of the project objectives and background and highlights its major achievements during the reporting period. The undertaken activities are also analysed, based on 'WASHCONTROL' structure in distinct work packages. Finally, information on knowledge dissemination is provided.
