The Ethiopian Textile Industry Development Institute (ETIDI) has urged all the textile industries in the country to pay increased attention to ensuring environmental safety in their treatment of effluents.

Speaking at a workshop held to generate awareness and promote social responsibility in the textile sector, Amha Bekele, Research Laboratory Director with the ETIDI, said rather than using fossil fuels, textile producers should adapt to use of renewable energy sources to reduce the impact on environment.

He said several textile units overlook the Environmental Pollution Control proclamation No. 300/2002 and Solid Waste Management proclamation No. 513/2007.

He added that some factories are discharging effluents in Akkai River, instead of employing proper effluent disposal mechanism.

ETIDI Director General, Sileshi Leema, said textile industry is an important source of green house gases and all industry stakeholders should introduce mechanism to arrest environmental pollution.

Amha Tegene, Senior Environmental Testing Expert at ETIDI, said installation of effluent treatment plants is a key to evolving a green economy.

The workshop drew participation of representatives of private and state-owned textile units, Members of Parliament and others.
