There are already some commercially successful applications, such as amylases used for desizing, cellulases and laccases for denim finishing, and proteases incorporated in detergent formulations. Although some types of enzymes already play an important role in some textile processes, their potential is much greater and their applications in future processes are likely to increase in the near future. Much work remains to be done to improve productivity and efficiency to a point at which these technologies will be as economically advantageous as the conventional approaches.
