Energy is one of the most important ingredients in any industrial activity. The availability is not infinite however. Energy crisis globally, as well as high cost of fuels resulted in more activities to conserve energy to maximum extent. Energy crisis globally, as well as high cost of fuels resulted in more activities to conserve energy to maximum extent. The textile industry is one of the major energy consuming industries and retains a record of the lowest efficiency in energy utilization. About 23% energy is consumed in weaving, 34% in spinning, 38% in chemical processing and another 5% for miscellaneous purposes. In general, energy in the textile industry is mostly used in the form of: electricity, as a common power source for machinery, cooling & temperature control system, lighting, equipment etc.; oil as a full for boilers which generate steam, liquefied petroleum gas, coal. And this has made pathway to conservation of energy which can be affected through process and machinery modifications and implementation of technological advancements relating to process optimization as well as development of newer methods to meet the challenge of substantial energy saving in textile wet processing.
