ZDHC scouring, is a philosophy of chemical research and engineering that encourages to have a processes that minimize the use and generation of hazardous substances in the effluent, and minimize the usage of the finite resources water and energy. The research is focused on minimizing the Hazard and improving the effluent quality, maximize the efficiency of process, improving the fabric finish attributes and high strength retention, dye yield in case of solid dyeing and improving whiteness in one bath bleach, reducing the process time etc. ZDHC scouring is an answer to all the bitter pills associated with conventional scouring and enzymatic scouring.
