TN encourages Erode textile processors to set up CETP

The Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board has encouraged the textile processors in Erode district to establish Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs) for which 50 per cent funding would come from the Central government and another 25 per cent from state government. The remaining amount would have to be borne by the units themselves, according to a national daily.

State environment minister Thoppu ND Venkatachalam said in a meeting with textile processors in Erode that the Rs 700 crore CETP project for Erode, Karur, Salem and Tirpur districts to be executed by Tamil Nadu Water Investment Corporation must be optimally utilised by the textile units. During the meeting the technicalities for establishing the CETP in Erode were analysed.

Further, the Erode Textile Processors Association also requested for interest-free loan for establishing the proposed CETP. The association at present owns a 22-acre site for the purpose, against the requirement of six acres.

The proposed facility will only handle solid waste, since the 400 dyeing, bleaching and printing units that are already equipped with effluent treatment plants and reverse osmosis systems, said the association president KS Thennarasu.

The proposed CETP is likely to be established in two phases. The bigger units would see through formation of a CETP at a cost of Rs 170 crore in the first phase while the smaller companies will follow the same in the second phase.

The officials further advised the industries to transport sludge from their units to the proposed CETP through tankers, due to the scattered locations of the units. They also informed that the proposals have already been sent to the government for approval of CETP sites proposed for the clusters in Bhavani, Perundurai and Chennimalai. (NA)
