Ward off use of tannery waste in poultry feed - POBA
Jul '10
Recently, the government has been urged by conservationists to instigate necessary steps to prevent the use of tannery effluents in poultry feed so as to evade any health menace.

A press release stated that, conservationists have pressed this demand while discussing the same at a roundtable conference on 'Preparing poultry feeds by poisonous tannery waste: Impact on public health', that was coordinated by Poribesh Bachao Andolon (POBA) at its office.

Conservationists say that around 250 chemicals including zinc, cadmium, chromium and arsenic are used for processing of leather, which alternatively are used for preparing poultry feed. These chemicals are transmitted in chicken body and eggs and those who have these chicken or eggs are exposed to a number of deadly diseases such as cancer, while kids may endure mental disabilities.

Thus, it is necessary that, quick steps be taken so as to halt the preparation of poultry feed with such toxic tannery effluents, the speakers said.

Abu Naser Khan, Charman of POBA chaired the discussion, while SM Saikat, Executive Director of Sirak-Bangladesh presented a keynote paper. Abu Zafar Mahmud, Professor of Dhaka University Chemistry Department, BCSI former director Dr Formuzul Haque, and Nirapod Development Foundation Chairman, Ibnul Syed Rana also shared their views.
