Tirupur textile dyeing units likely to reopen in 2011

In about another five months time, the textile dyeing units of Tirupur are likely to reopen if the efforts of the Tamil Nadu government towards that end bear fruit.

In order to bring an early resolution to the Tirupur crisis, the State government held yet another round of talks with the representatives of both the farmers lobby and the textile units.

At the meeting attended by Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, two methods were short-listed for ensuring zero-liquid discharge of toxic waste into the Noyyal River, as directed by the Madras High Court.

The two methods selected are the treatment of effluents by nano-technology and the brine solution method. For studying the nano-technology method of treating effluents, the State government has decided to send an expert delegation to Bharuch district in Gujarat, where some of the dyeing units are already using it.

As for the brine solution method, a three-month trial run is already on at the Arulpuram Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP). In this method, through Reverse Osmosis (RO), effluents from the treatment plant are channeled back using special pipelines to be reused again, thus ensuring zero-liquid discharge.

At the end of the three-month trial run for brine solution method, the government will take two months time to decide on which method to be adopted, to enable the reopening of Tirupur dyeing units in 2011 itself.

Further, the government has announced a zero-interest loan of Rs. 2 billion to the 20 CETPs in Tirupur to help these plants upgrade their existing infrastructure to be able to adopt the new technology that will ensure zero-liquid discharge.

The government has also said that it will soon disburse the compensation of Rs. 183 million, which is to be given to the affected farmers who have their fields along the banks of the Noyyal River.

Based on a petition filed by a farmers' association, the Madras High Court had ordered the closure of 752 dyeing units along the Noyyal River in Triupur in January 2011. Of these, as per the records of the Pollution Control Board of Tirupur, about 90 units were non-functioning while eight were unauthorized. While 152 units had their own Individual Effluent Treatment Plants (IETP), the remaining 502 units were connected to the 20 CETPs in Tirupur.
