Topic of Research Proposal : Development of a Novel garments dyeing process by using Natural dyes Background on the Research Topics: Natural dyes have become a part of human life since immemorial time. Currently there is a re-introduction of natural dyes which, compared with synthetic dyes, exhibit higher biodegradability, environmental compatibility, lower toxicity. The main focus of the research proposal is the study of natural dyeing process with the aim of improving natural dyeing in garments stages. Natural (plant-based) dyes are regaining some importance in the textile coloration industry. There are strong recommendations to re-instate them to the status of key ingredient rather than being relegated to the use by hobbyists or rural craftsmen. This may be attributed to the current and impending problems associated with synthetic dyes. The environment conscious informed customer and fashion are the other driving factors. This change has prompted research in the arcane art of dyeing with natural colors on a modern industrial scale. Cotton remains the king of textiles and has been taken as the material of choice.Early records have guided the hobbyist to use exhaustion from water as the standard method for dyeing with natural dyes. It also recommended using metallic salts to alter the color and or to improve desirable characteristics. Today, when the process is promoted on an industrial level a reduction in water consumption and elimination of metals becomes necessary. The purpose of this research is to examine and evaluate alternate methods of coloration, presently used in coloration with synthetic dyes, which will reduce water consumption with respect to coloration using natural dyes. In addition, suitable industrial grade, if possible eco-sustainable (low BOD / COD), coloration assistants will be investigated to improve desirable properties. It is expected that the research will result in a coloration system that will be effective in the application of natural dyes on cotton in an industrially acceptable manner. In the research project we will study the possibility to improve natural dyeing processes on natural fibres (both animal and vegetable fibres), in order to discover new possible natural ways of industrial natural dyeing .

Need to find out the effectiveness of natural dyeing process on the base of economical aspects. The existing dyeing process consist of using synthetic dye with more or less impact . establishment cost of existing dyeing process to natural dyeing process. Objective 2: To compare the environmental aspects of Natural dye and Synthetic dye in Garments dyeing. energy consumption need to be compare with existing dyeing process.steam consumption. Also analysis the no impact ability of natural dyes with reuse of by-product or wastage.Objectives of Study: 1. Methodology of Study: Objective 1: To develop a Novel dyeing process for garments dyeing using Natural dyes.Till now Bangladeshi garments dyeing factories uses the synthetic dyes and not familiar with natural dyes. In this step need to calculate & compare the dye cost. PH is need to be select to established a standard process and final swatch. utility cost.The load of BOD/COD on ETP. Objective 3: To compare the economical aspects of Natural dyeing and Synthetic dyeing on prospect of Bangladesh. process cost. Then the appropriate mordent. To compare the economical aspects of Natural dyeing and Synthetic dyeing on prospect of Bangladesh. To compare the environmental aspects of Natural dye and Synthetic dye in Garments dyeing 3. To develop a Novel dyeing process for garments dyeing using Natural dyes. There are many factors which can influenced the environmental aspects .
