TIRUPPUR - Textile dyeing units in India's textiles hub city of Tiruppur are struggling to dispose of a 10-year backlog of about 60,000 tonnes of accumulated salt sludge.

The potentially hazardous waste has built up in the area's 18 common effluent treatment plants (CETPs) fed by around 450 dyeing units which each generate up to 70 tonnes of salt sludge a day.

“In the wake of an acute space crunch and rain lashing out frequently, it has become a herculean task for dyeing units to store the salt safely," S Murugasamy, general secretary of the Dyers Association of Tiruppur, told DT Next.
