A team comprising Delhi government officials, experts and officials of the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) will be visiting a Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) in Gujarat to understand and explore feasibility of implementing practices and systems adopted there to keep a check on the hazardous sludge-generating units.
This is the fourth team being sent to Gujarat to study a particular project implemented there. Recently, the Delhi government had sent three other teams to study electricity generation through solar power, Sabarmati Riverfront Project and CCTV-based city surveillance system in Gujarat.
“The DPCC will hire a consultant and prepare a roadmap to solve the problem of generation of hazardous waste,’’ environment secretary Sanjiv Kumar said.
The Delhi government has already identified two industrial areas in the capital which have maximum concentration of hazardous sludge-generating units, Kumar said.
Eleven common effluent treatment plants in these industrial areas will be converted into biological treatment plants by closing the hazardous sludge-generating units, he said.

The environment secretary further stated that in the absence of treatment, storage and disposal facility in Delhi, CETP societies are storing the hazardous sludge at present.
“No new consent to establish and operate shall be granted to hazardous waste-generating units except in two industrial areas which will be identified. Consent to operate (renewal) shall be considered only by the committee headed by chairman, DPCC, and the consent shall be considered for a period not exceeding two years in all industrial areas except the two identified areas,’’ a release from the government said.
