Cuddalore textile processing park eco-friendly: SIMA

The Southern India Mills' Association (SIMA) which set up a textile processing park at Cuddalore in collaboration with the Central and Tamil Nadu government, has said it will sign an MoU at the Global Investors Meet in Chennai and 10 leading textile group companies in the State are set to establish their processing units in the park.

In a press release, SIMA Chairman T Rajkumar, said that the said park and the technology for the treatment and disposal of effluents have been approved by the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board, Maritime Board, Central Pollution Control Board and the Ministry of Environment and Forest.

Rajkumar said the textile processing park would generate direct employment to 5000 people and indirect jobs for 25,000 people within two years. He said several meetings were organized by the District Collector, Cuddalore to apprise the local people about the park and allay their fears over pollution.

He dismissed arguments by some people against the project as baseless and pointed out that the project is closely monitored by SIMA, TNPCB, Maritime Board and Ministry of Environment and Forest. Rajkumar said such projects are already in operation in Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra and in almost all the developed countries across the world.

The SIMA chief said the processing units predominantly use common salt for dyeing cotton fabrics which is harmless when discharged into sea, but would have adverse affect if the same is left on the surface.

He stressed that textile processing does not involve any toxic chemicals which are hazardous to the marine life and foolproof technology with on-line monitoring system would be implemented and monitored by a competent third party agency under the supervision of Pollution Control Board.

Rajkumar also said that the treated effluent will be discharged into the sea beyond 600 metres from the shore and samples will be tested frequently and monitored by the government authorities. (SH)
