Textile associations unite to protest export of cotton waste

Various associations of textiles and other related industries have planned to observe a closure on May 16.

This move will be given force to ensure that the demand of banning export of waste cotton is met. In other words, it will ascertain a continuous supply of the raw material to the local spinning mills.

Tamil Nadu Textile Federation which is supporting and leading the shutdown is a conglomerate of 19 textile industry related associations including printing, bleaching, dyeing, weaving and spinning associations.

In an exclusive interview with Fibre2fashion, Dr K Salvaraju, Secretary General, The Southern India Mills Association (SIMA), stated, “Export of cotton waste has been increasingly affecting open ended spinning mills since it feeds as a basic raw material in the manufacturing of coarse or other variety of yarn used for handloom goods. Moreover, production of short staple and extra long fibre has also been on a decline, making the availability of waste cotton all the more difficult.”

Mr Salvaraju stressed that the Government must ensure to boost the production of short staple fibre, increase cotton acreage and allow duty free import of cotton from African countries as measures to control the situation.

This apart, problems are also being faced by printing and processing industries in Salem, Erode, Coimbatore, Karur, Madurai because of stringent pollution control norms. With regard to this, a plea has been made to the Government for setting up effluent treatment plant to ensure safe discharge of treated effluent water into the sea.
