Abstract

Biotechnology in textiles is one of the revolutionary ways to promote textile field. Bio-processing were accompanied by a significant lower demand of energy, water, chemicals, time and costs. In the world are carried out investigations to replace conventional chemical textile processes by eco-friendly and economically attractive bioprocesses using enzymes. This paper will show the experimental results relating to optimization of the treatment processes with neutral cellulase enzyme to improve physical properties of handloom cotton fabric. Cellulase enzymes are known as effective in treatments of cotton fabric. For the use of neutral cellulase enzyme and evaluate in physical properties like weight loss, moisture content, strength loss, bending length and water absorption on cotton fabric was made optimization of the conditions of concentration, treatment time and temperature. From these results was chosen an optimum enzyme concentration-2.0% owf (on weight of fabric), treatment time-70 minutes and temperature-65 °C.
