One of the shortcomings of the laser method is the high cost for an individual piece of equipment’s operation, and side by side at each piece, it provides limited efficiencies for overall bleaching (Apparel 2014). Ozone bleaching and finishing The use of ozone technology allows textile companies to create natural beaching effects by using ozone gas instead of chemicals (Apparel 2014; Khalil 2015). In ozone finishing methods, oxygen (O2) is changed to ozone gas (O3) through a series of processes such as dampening, sun exposure, and rinsing of denim garments; after that, O3 is changed back to ordinary, harmless oxygen before emission into the environment (Apparel 2014).

4 million tons in natural fiber (Textile World 2015).

B). b). Despite the advantages of rPET, it still creates environmental issues, due to its approximately 30 % greater use of chemical bleaching solutions and water and energy usage for redyeing processes as compared to virgin polyester production (Oecotextiles 2010). Modified regenerated cellulose fibers To reduce the negative impacts of a traditional viscose rayon manufacturing process, the Austrian textile company Lenzing developed Tencel® and Modal®, innovated types of rayon. Tencel® and Modal® adopt more eco-friendly manufacturing processes with the use of non-toxic solvent spinning, which are capable of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and resource consumption as well as recycling water waste (Oecotextiles 2012a).
