The Textile Processors Association today held a training programme on Wastewater Management in Textile Dyeing,Printing and Finishing industry today.
Speaking on the occasion,Krishan Kumar Sharma,president,Textile Processors Association said,Being small in size,it is difficult for the industry to address environment issues. This problem is challenging and overburdening individual units. The aim of the programme,he said,is to train textile manufacturers about how they can control water consumption at source.
Dr Akepati S Reddy of Thapar Technology Campus noted that the industry is both water and energy intensive. He added that the options before the textile manufacturers are reduction of water consumption at source,re-cycling of water,re-use and treatment of polluted water and disposal. Waste water management advocates a cradle to grave approach,for ensuring cost effective and consistent compliance with the environmental requirements, he added.
Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) Executive Engineer Nazar Singh also spoke on the occasion.
