AMSTERDAM – A newly published review of current wastewater discharge guidance in the textile industry by the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Group, has found a wide range in discharge regulations and measuring methods that differ by nation, between guidelines published by brands and amongst multi-brand consortia. As part of its findings the ZDHC calls for a drive towards establishing global guidelines for wastewater discharge and standardised analytical testing to establish an industry wide baseline.
