NITRA designs modern treatment scheme for CETP
Apr '17
The Northern India Textile Research Association (NITRA) has designed the Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) situated at Ajrakhpur, Bhuj in Gujarat. NITRA has designed a modern treatment scheme integrated with water reclamation for the CETP. The project also includes 6 months post-commissioning hand-holding support to be provided by NITRA.

The 150 KLD CETP project has been assigned to NITRA for implementation by Ministry of Textiles through Handicrafts Mega Cluster Mission (HMCM).

The project will lead to capacity enhancement as it will increase the effluent treatment capacity for the block printing cluster in Ajrakhpur from present level of 50 KLD to 200 KLD. It ensures environment protection and will restrict open discharge of effluent, curtailing environmental hazards.

The project will also ensure ground water saving by using lesser water as treated water is recyclable for use in washing and other operations. It will help conserve energy by reducing the amount of ground water lifted through pumping. The project will also provide additional investment opportunities as an increase in cluster production and additional units will attract buyers and investors.

The CEPT will help increase the turnover and create employment opportunities. It will also lead to overall business growth.

The foundation stone of the CEPT was laid by Union textiles minister Smriti Irani. (KD)
