TN textile processors to self-comply with TNPCB norms
Textile processors in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu will enforce self-discipline and third-party monitoring in Perundurai State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu Limited (SIPCOT) to ensure environmental compliance. This would further create confidence among all stakeholders, according to The Southern India Mills’ Association (SIMA).

SIMA and Perundurai SIPCOT Textile Processors Association have unanimously decided to enforce self-discipline to ensure sustainability with regard to environment.

“As per the resolutions, each textile processing unit would ensure complying with the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB) norms by adopting specified methods including ZLD technology apart from conserving water and recording the effluent treatment performance data with TNPCB Water Quality Watch Centre,” SIMA chairman P Nataraj said in a press release. 

As one of the fastest growing states, Tamil Nadu pioneered the adoption of Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) technology for treating textile effluents to protect the environment. SIPCOT encouraged the industrialists to adhere to the regulations and comply with the various statues and promoted large number of industries across Tamil Nadu.

In recent years, the growth of the textile industry got stagnated in Tamil Nadu, which accounts for one-third of the country’s textile business. One of the major challenges for the textile processing sector of the state is availability of quality water and treatment of the textile effluents in a cost-effective manner.

Perundurai SIPCOT is housed with over 35 textile processing units in addition to several other industrial units including tanneries. Each textile processing unit has invested ₹10-30 crore for ZLD effluent treatment plant (ETP) and are also bearing huge recurring expenditure to comply with the environmental norms and protect the environment.
