Effluent treatment plants in leather cluster to start in June

The two reverse osmosis (RO) plants in the leather cluster of Ambur and Vaniyambadi will become operational in coming June. These plants are the part of a common effluent treatment plant. Ambur and Vaniyambadi are around 200 km from Chennai.

These plants have been set up at the cost of Rs. 70 crore, which has been shared equally by the Centre and stakeholders. For the execution of this project, a special purpose vehicle has been formed, said Z Nizamuddin, manager-technical of Ambur Tannery Effluent treatment company Ltd.

The Ambur plant can hold 2,400 liters of water a day. At present, 57 factories with maximum small and medium enterprises within a radius of 5 kilometer are connected through pipelines.

According to Z Nizamuddin, additional utilization of 8 million liters of water in a day alone in Ambur would be prevented due to this new system as the units in this town consume around 12 million liters every day. Use of purified water in this system would improve the quality of leather too.

The membranes for the RO plants are being imported from the US and Holland. For the maintenance of the plant, around Rs. 8 lakh would be spent on each unit every month, added Z Nizamuddin.

The Industrial Infrastructure Upgradation Scheme (IIUS) of the Union Ministry of Commerce and Industry has come in handy for the tanneries, since they were under pressure from Supreme Court regarding complaints about waste matter discharge into the environment.
