He added that the wastewater treatment plant is going to meet the international standards and would be capacitated to recycle 2,500 tons of effluents a day.

He said that the textile factory, the first phase of which became functional towards end part of the last Iranian year that concluded on March 20, now produces eight tons of yarn per day by employing 180 workers.
