Salem dyers to set up Yarn Dyeing Park
Sep '10
Yarn dyers dwelling in Salem are facing a terrible situation and now to overcome it, they are all set to establish 'Salem Yarn Colouring Park' following the closure of over 150 units, with most of them being small units, by the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB) for not building common effluent treatment plants.

According to these dyers, establishment of such a plant will offer them clinching solution on their current issues. This Rs 3 billion project will be built on 60 acres of land near Mecheri, comprising of 40 units along with a common Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) for zero discharge of effluents.

Machinery required for the project will be imported from Italy. The park will dye 120 tons of yarn per day, which will fetch around Rs 25 billion foreign exchange. The project would be diversified further to increase this turnover up to Rs 100 billion. Around 4,000 workers would be employed directly and 45,000 indirectly in the projected park.

The dyeing industry has not been witnessing development and modernization since long; hence, dyers are now facing strict pollution norms. So, now they are investing in development and modernization, which would eventually help them to deal with global challenges.

Around 10,000 weaving units in various districts such as Salem, Namakkal and Erode source raw materials from Salem dyeing units.
