Cleanest textile city is also environmental polluter

26
Aug '09
One of the cleanest cities in India; Surat, has earned the dubious distinction of being an environmental polluter in the country; thanks to its numerous textile printing and dyeing enterprises.

There are nearly 450 dyeing and printing and over 600 chemicals manufacturing companies in Surat, who are the culprits and are responsible for the pollution of the city and its surroundings.

Along with polluting the environment by releasing untreated water, they are also responsible for the high level of air pollution which exceeds permissible limits in this city, famous for textiles and diamonds.

At a meeting, the Regional Officer of the Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB) stressed on the need to set up Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CEPT) in the industrial areas and added that it should be done urgently.

The GPCB has particularly targeted the textile industries of the city after environmentalists complained about the increase in pollution levels and also about use of petroleum coke by these companies instead of coal.
