A methodological approach and the results related to the development and the implementation of a tool for the introduction of clean technologies (CT) to SME’s was developed resulting into an innovative and user-friendly software package Decision Support Tool (DST) using an integrated techno-economical full-scale application.

The methodological scheme adopted for the design of the DST was based on the formulation of a Clean Technologies database for the Textile Industry, which was developed by a survey of the "clean" textile processes, as well as, on the elaboration of mass/energy balances of the textile processes. The DST was simulated successfully in industrial environment.
