State-of-the-Art Wastewater Treatment
HanesBrands has constructed state-of-the-art wastewater-treatment plants to support its manufacturing facilities around the world. These plants are built to meet or exceed wastewater standards in the United States and local countries, whichever are more stringent.
The systems treat 100 percent of the wastewater from Hanes’ manufacturing facilities and employ an advanced, naturally occurring biological process that has been proven to effectively treat textile-process wastewater and wastewater from sanitary sources. Additionally, each plant now incorporates an anoxic pretreatment process that has been shown to further remove color associated with the textile dyeing process.
The plants feature on-site laboratories to ensure that all regulatory-performance criteria are met or surpassed.
