Pollution closes Indian dye houses

Written by John Mowbray

India pollutionSURAT – The Times of India is reporting that 29 textile dyeing and printing mills have been issued with closure notices by the Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB), many for using petroleum coke and other illegal waste materials as fuel as well as polluting local water ways. However, the local trade body suggests many units are turning to other fuel sources – which release hazardous chemicals into the atmosphere – in response to soaring natural gas prices.
