Dyeing Units Plans To Install ROP

The textile dyeing units connected to the Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) at Telugupalayam here plan to install a reverse osmosis plant to reuse the treated effluents. V. Marimuthu, president of the common plant, told The Hindu that 41 licensed units were connected to the CETP and all were small-scale industries that processed yarn. The processed yarn was supplied to the weaving units in the region. Electricity connections were disconnected earlier for 12 unlicensed units as they were found violating the pollution control norms. The 41 units had established the CETP a year and a half ago at a cost of Rs. 4.6 crore.


Mr. Marimuthu said the units were not functioning for the last few days and were studying the possibility of establishing a reverse osmosis plant. With reports of the units discharging effluents from the CETP without proper treatment, the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board issued notice to the units a week ago and gave them 15 days time to reply.


Under directions from the Collector, V. Palanikumar, samples were taken from the inlet and outlet of the CETP and at the point of confluence of Rajavaikkal in Noyyal and the discharged effluents had toxic contents more than the permissible levels. The Collector said the board would wait for the response from the units for the notice and then decide on the future course of action.
