A detailed project report (DPR) for the proposed Rs.150-crore common effluent treatment plant (CETP) for textile processing units spread across three southern districts is ready.

The CETP, to be set up under the Integrated Processing Development Scheme of the Union government, will have capacity to treat six million litres of water per day, of which around 90 per cent will be recovered and reused. The system will also recover used salts for reuse by the dyeing and bleaching units. The facility will adopt Zero Liquid Discharge Technology, according to KR. Gnanasambandan, consultant for the special purpose vehicle (SPV), Southern Districts Textile Processing Cluster Private Limited, formed for relocating over 200 micro and small textile processing units under the Private Industrial Estate Scheme.

Mr. Gnanasambandan said that the proposed cluster, with the CETP, would come up at Tamaraikulam near Kariapatti in Virudhunagar district. Construction work would start in a few months, soon after getting State government’s approval, and it would take a year for the cluster to take shape.

The details of the project were presented before a group of experts from the industry, banks, academia and government agencies here on Thursday.

The CETP, according to a press release, will have a co-generation facility to generate power required for the plant. “The anticipated employment opportunity will be more than 5000 and the turnover would be around Rs. 1,000 crore,” the release said. Padmanand, Director, Grant Thornton, which prepared the DPR; Ritan N. Thakker, Managing Director, SPV; and Mr. Gnanasambandan addressed the gathering.
