With increasing awareness about the environmental concern and usage of eco-friendly agents, researchers and scientists today are finding ways to treat textile materials without use of chemicals. To fulfill the space, many researchers are developing enzyme-based products for industrial applications to enhance the product functional properties and uses.

Bioprocessing of Textiles: Fundamentals for Applications and Research Prospective deals with the basic fundamentals of enzyme technology and their applications in textile processing of both natural and synthetic fibres for enhancing their functional characteristics. The book also describes the future scope of enzyme technology for hygienic and healthcare textile product development and safety aspects of handling enzymes in the textile industries. In short, this book presents a refreshingly original approach in emphasizing the interface between enzyme technology and textile materials apart from dealing with diverse methods and techniques used in industrial practices.
