DHAKA - Seven textile and dyeing factories in Bangladesh will be ordered to shut down production in three months unless they establish effluent treatment plants (ETPs) to stop dumping untreated waste into the badly-polluted Buriganga River.

The seven firms include at least one exporter - Lamia Textile and Dyeing which claims to supply 50 leading brands - and are all based in the capital city of Dhaka.

It follows a High Court ruling against the companies, Mita Textiles, Ovijat Dyeing, Chandpur Textiles and Dyeing, Shahjadi Dyeing, Vorasha Dyeing and Shamim Textile and Dyeing, as well as Lamia.
