Support for Tirupur’s zero discharge efforts

Written by John Mowbray

NEW DELHI: The Indian government has sanctioned Rs 200.00 Crores (around US$300,000) to the Tirupur Dyeing industry which was said to be experiencing serious financial difficulties. Government sources claim these problems are a result of the industry's investment in the first ever Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) projects in the country, which commenced around 2008. The decision to support the cash-strapped sector is on the recommendation of the Ministry of Textiles and the cash will be provided to18 Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs) as an interest free loan, offered based on the performance of the CETPs. The move is aimed at helping the struggling CETPs and 450 dyeing units to recover from the financial crisis which has impacted on India.
