Hazaribagh tanneries to be moved by 2012

Bangladesh State Minister for Environment and Forests, Dr. Hasan Mahmud has assured the country's Parliament that the process of relocation of the polluting leather processing factories from Hazaribagh will be completed by December 2012.

The Minister admitted that the liquid and solid wastes emanating from the tanneries are severely polluting areas and rivers nearby Dhaka.

The Government plans to shift the Hazaribagh tanneries to a specially constructed site at Savar, 24 km to the northwest of Dhaka city. The new site, for which the construction is underway, will be able to house around 155 of the 195 factories that are presently operating in Hazaribagh.

The Bangladesh Small and Cottage Industries Corporation (BSCIC), which is implementing the Tk 5 billion project, has already completed laying of necessary infrastructure and utilities at the new site. These include construction of roads, laying of power and gas supply lines, elaborate security arrangements, and laying pipeline for supply of purified water.

The time limit for completion of the project, which commenced in January 2003, has been extended until 2012, mainly owing to the delay in the completion of the tender procedure for setting up a Central Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP). The CETP is to be financed by the Government, but the tannery owners are to repay in installments.

The High Court had earlier in June 2009 passed an order to shift all the existing leather processing units from Hazaribagh area by February 28, 2010. This deadline has already been extended twice owing to delay in installation of CEPT.
