On completion of the construction of the dyeing unit, each day around 100 tons of fibres and yarn would be dyed, Mr. Hatami said.

He stated that a liquid effluent treatment plant would also be constructed in vicinity of a textile unit established by Turkish investors in the FTZ situated in the north-western province in the Eastern part of the country.

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.
