DoE penalizes textile & tannery unit for pollution

Sep '10
Recently, a textile mill and a tannery in the port city's Kalurghat industrial area were penalized for Tk 40.60 lakh, by the Department of Environment (DoE) for contaminating the river Karnaphuli.

Base Textile Mills Ltd was fined Tk 32 lakh by the DOE team, as the company in spite of repeated notices from the department paid no heed to setting up of an effluent treatment plant.

The mill even ignored procuring an environmental clearance despite repeated notices from the DoE.

The company released chemical effluents in a nearby channel which ultimately merged with river Karnaphuli. The DoE team took samples of the discharged effluents and after carrying out tests discovered that the level of toxic substances was pretty high than the limits set by the government.

The factory has been discharging around one lakh cubic metres of liquid effluents without any treatment for over past 12 years, while the mill authorities assured setting up of an ETP by year end.

Reaf Leather Ltd too was penalized by the same DoE team for insufficient utilization of its ETP. The tannery was fined for releasing untreated liquid effluents in a channel.
