Schematic flow diagram of the proposed recycle and reuse process. This showcases the actual idea of water recycling in scouring and bleaching baths (three times) without replenishment of water or chemicals. Further mixing the wastewater after third recycled scouring and bleaching baths in 50:50, 70:30 and 30:70 ratios, respectively, and desize a new grey fabric using it. At the last, dyeing of all fabrics is carried. Where; WW: wastewater, S1, S2, S3 and S4: Scouring processes 1,2,3,4 respectively, B1, B2, B3 and B4: Bleaching processes 1,2,3,4 respectively.
