India to phase out CTC usage by year-end

Dec '09
It is estimated that every year, the Indian Textile Industry consumes more than 1500 tons of Carbon Tetrachloride (CTC) for cleaning, removing stains from apparels, degreasing of metal parts, and machinery and for servicing garment making machinery.

CTC is a green house gas which contributes significantanly to global warming. Impacts of CTC occur in human beings by inhaling and absorption of the material by skin. Unfavorable consequences might be kidney and liver disorders and other cancerous ailments. It not only disturbs the human immune system, but also affects the fauna and flora as well.

India is one among the 193 countries that are signatory to the 'Montreal Protocol on Substances', a treaty for phasing out production of ozone depleting substances. Training programmes have been launched to phase out the usage of carbon tetra chloride from the textile industry.

Its main initiative is to disseminate the hazards of using CTC and its impact in the ozone layer causing irreversible damage to both mankind and the environment. Efforts are being taken to stop the usage of CTC completely, by the end of 2009.
