Intelligent Water Management in the Textile and Clothing Industry

With support of: -With support of

GIATEX Project aims to respond to the challenges faced by textile ennoblement companies in terms of intensive water consumption. Thus, it is intended to develop a set of tools that allow companies to reduce specific consumption of water (using less intensive ennoblement technologies and adoption of treatment technologies that allow water reuse), and support decision-making on water final destination (through integration of process monitoring and control systems and a new tool to support water management).


Main Goals/Activities

The main goals and activities of the project are:

  • study and characterization of wet processes;
  • R&D in intelligent process monitoring systems;
  • R&D in ennobling technologies with lower water consumption;
  • R&D in wastewater treatment technologies resulting from the textile ennobling process;
  • implementation of technologies developed in pilot units;
  • development of a decision-support IT tool for water management.


CeNTI has a strong participation on the development of real-time detection and monitoring systems of different water quality parameters, and installation of a pilot unit at textile companies.
