Abstract

The carbon footprint reflects the greenhouse gases (GHGs) generated throughout the life cycle of a human activity or product, and is therefore an important tool for assessing and managing GHGs emissions. Ecological footprint display the impact assesments of waste managments process of any industry, as it generates very harmful products in the environment. However, it needs attention to use advanced technology to mentain the equllibrium of carbon and ecological footprint of textile industry. Presented review comprises the carbon and ecological foot prints of textile effluents and 3R strategy for their possible balance. 3R strategy i.e. reduce, recycle and reuse were discussed in terms of carbon reduction through transport management, and waste management generated from textile industries including nutritional value of textile sludge and effluent for agricultural use.
