To increase the competitiveness of the textile and apparel industry of Gujarat and to align with the state textile policy aimed at minimising pollution, preserving environment and focusing on sustainability, Ahmedabad Textile Industry’s Research Association (ATIRA) is organising a one-day conference on zero discharge of hazardous chemicals (ZDHC).

Titled ‘Responsible textile production through sustainable chemicals management’ – ATIRA perspective on zero discharge of hazardous chemicals in textile and allied industry, the conference will be held on Wednesday, December 26, 2018, at ATIRA Auditorium in Ahmedabad.

The event intends to spread awareness among the industry about the need to raise the bar on responsible and sustainable production. The highlights include sharing about ZDHC, the commitments of the lead organisations, their practices, the challenges and the systems adopted by them to overcome their challenges.

“ATIRA being a premier textile research institute takes the onus of leading and collaborating with all stakeholders to help attain the vision of economic growth but in a sustainable way,” the Ahmedabad-based organisation says.

The eco laboratory at ATIRA houses sophisticated instruments like GC, GC-MS, HPLC, AAS, ICP, etc, which can be handy and be used to test restricted substances even as per ZDHC requirement by the industry for their assessment and control.

Prasad Pant, director-South East Asia, ZDHC would be the lead speaker at the conference. Gautam Shah of Reliance Textile, Dr. Bharat Jain, member-secretary of GCPC, Gandhinagar, Abhisek Bansal of Arvind Mills Ltd, Dr. Ramesh Kumar of Welspun India Ltd, Dr. Syamal De from Atul, and Dr. Mahesh Dalal from ATIRA are also among the speakers at the conference.
