Tirupur first textile cluster to claim zero liquid discharge

Tags: News
Knitted garment export hub, Tirupur has become the first textiles cluster in the country to boast of arriving at Zero Liquid Discharge Technology (ZLDT). All the dyeing and processing units at present use ZLDT, claimed Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) in a statement. “We are proud to announce that Tirupur is first to arrive at ZLDT in dyeing and processing technology. At present, all dyeing and processing units in the cluster are using 100 per cent Zero Discharge Technology,” A Sakthivel, chairman, AEPC said on Thursday.

It may be noted that several of these units were earlier shut, following a court order. On behalf of the Dyers Association of Tirupur, Sakthivel said that now all processing is carried out with 100 per cent Zero Discharge Technology.

“We are sure that Tirupur will be back to normalcy and there will be upward progress in supplies to both in domestic and international markets and will catch up by the time global economic slowdown ends,” he observed. “Both common effluent treatment plants (CETPs) and individual units are following this ZTD technology and are successfully meeting the requirements of the trade and servicing the requirements,” Sakthivel said.
