Pali study raises textile pollution concerns

Written by John Mowbray

PALI – The huge challenges faced by Indian officials seeking to clean up the country's highly polluting textile industry are laid bare by a new report which documents the findings of an environmental monitoring unit set up in the Indian textile manufacturing hub of Pali.

The unit uncovered significantly raised levels of chloride, sulphide, sulphate and total dissolved solids in local drinking water sources, while 80 per cent of the tested textile effluent samples were found to be "highly polluted" when measured for their pH, DO, TDS, COD, chloride, sulphide and sulphate content.
