Org/t&c/. 6*10À5 3 412 1 © OECD/IEA 2013 World Energy Outlook, IEA Publishing. org/t&c/. Energy footprints in the textile industry 33 activities. Unit of energy footprint is defined as the measure of land required to absorb the CO2 emissions (Gdrc). This approach focuses on the outcome of energy use, which is CO2 emissions, to understand the environmental cost of the problem. The environmental cost of CO2 emissions keeps increasing as a result of rising urbanization rates, intensive industrial activity, climate change, and transitions in land use and agricultural practices.

Applications of exergy analysis in the textile sector were studied by Cay et al. (2012, 2009, 2007, 2010), where thermal energy consumption of printing, drying, and stenting machinery and processes are analyzed and the exergy destructions in each of the components of the overall systems are determined for measured average values of processing parameters. 4 Specific energy consumption Specific energy consumption (SEC) calculation method is one of the basic approaches to calculate unit energy consumption of a product.

In the calculation of SEC the number of energy consuming unit (J) that are associated with energy consumption, the average amount of energy (Et) that is used during period (t), and the quantity of production (Pt) that is produced during period (t) are involved.
