Textile processing is a growing industry that traditionally has used a lot of water, energy and harsh chemicals. They are also not easily biodegradable. Biotechnology in textiles is one of the revolutionary ways to advance the textile field. Biotechnology offers the potential for new industrial processes that require less energy and are based on renewable raw materials, as well as the application of green technologies with low energy consumption and environmentally healthy practices. Due to the ever-growing costs for water and energy worldwide investigations are carried out to substitute conventional chemical textile processes by environment-friendly and economically attractive bioprocessesusing enzymes.This work represents a review of role of biotechnology in textile processing. The aim is to provide the textile technologist with an understanding of enzymes and their use with textile materials.
