Textile sector to protest against Pollution Control Board
Aug '09
Since last 10 days, more than 300 bleaching factories in Erode have closed their shutters as a protest against Pollution Control Board's insistence on installation of Reverse Osmosis (RO) plants in their factories.

The Pollution Control Board instructed the small bleaching factories and the textile production centres to install the Reverse Osmosis (RO) plants in their respective factories.

In order to protest against this instruction, the power-looms, textile production centres and wholesale and retail textile shops would be closed on August 5. This decision was taken in a meeting by textile producers and traders.

The meeting was organized by the Erode Handloom Cloth Merchants Association and All Textile Traders Association, informed Mr. Natarasa Mudaliar, President, Erode Handloom Textile Merchants Association.

As most of the bleaching factories function with small investments, erection of RO plants seems as a burden to its owners because it requires big investments. However, the erection of water treatment plants has been done in these factories and it doesn't affect the environment, said Mr. Mudaliar.
