The Bangladesh Department of Environment (DoE) has imposed a penalty of Tk 3.9 million on a textile dyeing unit which was found polluting the environment.

According to a DoE statement, a team led by Director (Enforcement) Mohammad Munir Chowdhury found the textile dyeing unit based in Bhadam area of Tongi releasing untreated liquid waste in Turag river near Gazipur.

The factory administration paid out Tk 2 million as first instalment of the fine, the statement revealed.

DoE said the factory was not operating its effluent treatment plant (ETP) in order to trim costs.

The team at once tested the water samples of the river, where the dyeing and processing unit was discharging its liquid effluents, and found the water to be polluted.

DoE has asked the factory owner to halt operations until the ETP starts functioning to its full capacity.

According to the DoE statement, the dyeing unit has a capacity to process around five tons of fabric per day.
