A high-tech tanneries zone in Sialkot is coming up very recently with an investment of Rs400 million. This zone will be developed over an area spanning 384 acres.

In this venture, Punjab Government will invest Rs300 million while remaining Rs100 million will be contributed by stakeholders.

Official sources from Pakistan tannery association informed Fibre2fashion.com, “After the completion of this project, all existing tanneries, those are scattered in and sorrounding Sialkot would be shifted in this new zone in order to work smoothly.”

An affluent water treatment plant would also be installed here. This will help to cope with the growing pollution threats caused by the ill-planned establishment of tanneries in and close to Sialkot.

Currently, nearly 248 tanneries of different sizes are operating in and close to Sialkot; of which nine large, 79 medium and 160 small tanneries are functioning in the area.

The main intention of setting up of this Sialkot Tanneries Zone is to ensure pollution-free surroundings to the inhabitants living in tanneries cluster as well as to the environment.
