Ahmedabad textile units to install pollution control devices

Textile processing units in Narol area of Ahmedabad, the largest city in the west Indian State of Gujarat, will soon have a fully automated air pollution control (APC) system installed.

In 2006-07, the Environmental Pollution Controlling Authority constituted by the Hon. Supreme Court under the Chairmanship of Bhurelal (Bhurelal Committee), in consultations with Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB), had identified around 120 textile processing units in the vicinity of Narol as one of the major industrial sources of air pollution in the city of Ahmedabad.

“Subsequently, we requested L.D. College of Engineering to survey each and every individual unit, see what capacity of boilers have been installed by individual members, what are their existing pollution control measures, and then come with a conclusion identifying deficiencies, if any, and their rectification, which if implemented and maintained properly, can contribute to the control of pollution,” Mr. Nitin Thakkar, President of Ahmedabad Textile Processors Association (ATPA) revealed to fibre2fashion.

“A team, under the guidance of Dr. NS Varandani, Head of Department of Environmental Engineering at L.D. College of Engineering, collected the required information through a detailed survey of the units. Based on the data collected and experience, the team has developed and designed the APC Systems for different capacity boilers using different fuels,” he informed.

Speaking about the survey Dr. NS Varandani exclaims, “The fact that installations and operation of the developed system is going to be expensive remained continuously on my mind and had a killing effect. It took us 13 months to logically complete the work to our satisfaction.”

Explaining about the new APC system, he states, “The APC system is so developed that the Quench Tower will operate in series with Bag Filter and not in parallel. This means that there is no provision for by-pass of the fuel gases, but at the same time it provides effective control of the fuel gas temperature which other wise damages the filter bags. The system also provides for the automatic operation controls. I am fully confident that the developed APC system, when installed, operated and maintained as suggested, will definitely bring the pollutants in flue gas under control.”

“Initially, the APC System will be installed at 87 units at Narol,” avers Dr. Varandani.
