Ludhiana dyeing firms adopt zero liquid discharge
Dec '11
Twenty-two dyeing units at Ludhiana's Bahadurke road have accepted to follow the zero liquid discharge system, and the work in respect of setting up a Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) for these units has already begun and is likely to conclude within a year.

Ludhiana Dyeing Association, which has several leading brands as its members, has been opposing zero liquid discharge projects, on grounds of being expensive. However, after the 22 dyers decided to adopt the project, construction of the new CETP has begun on an area of four acres of land which has been obtained on lease by Bahadurke Road Textile and Knitwear Association (BKTK).

The zero liquid discharge project would be completed in three phases namely, installation of CETP, then Bio-mass Thermal Plant and ultimately the steam distribution system.

Under the project, waste water from the dyeing units would be collected through underground pipelines which would then be processed to make it reusable for the dyeing units. Presently, this water is being discarded in Buddha nallah.

The overall cost of the project is estimated at Rs. 1.58 billion, 25 percent of which has been funded by the industry entrepreneurs, while the rest is being funded from bank loans.

JBR Power Technologies, which has been appointed to lead the project, would also facilitate installation of a steam distribution system and biomass thermal plant for the BKTK association members, and would provide steam to the dyeing units at the rate of one rupee per kg.
