'UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Have Impact on Textile Wastewater Pollution Research' by David Ellis

David Ellis writes the following for Digital Science:

The world’s research effort into wastewater pollution caused by the textiles industry has increased threefold over the past five years, according to a new analysis released this week in the lead up to Earth Day (Friday 22 April).

The rise in research correlates with the implementation in 2016 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030, particularly SD6, relating to clean water and sanitation for all. …

Dr [Briony] Fane, a Research Analyst with Digital Science, says: ‘Water contamination and pollution is one of the world’s most critical environmental challenges, affecting both developing and developed nations. It’s well documented that the textiles and fashion industries have accelerated this major impact on our planet, to the detriment of human health, biodiversity, and society.’
