Dear Members,

Sub: Request for inputs on Implementation of Circular Economy in Textile Sector- Sludge Generation and Effective Management

This is with reference to the VC meeting on "Implementation of Circular Economy in Textile sector" with special focus on utilization of chemical sludge generated from the treatment of wastewater from textile units organised by the Waste Management-II Division of Hazardous Waste Management, Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) on 6th July, 2022

The meeting was chaired by Shri B.Vinod Babu, Scientist (F&DH) of CPCB IT Division. Shri P.K.Mishra, Scientist (E&DH) and some other Senior Scientists from CPCB were also present. Shri Dhiraj R. Shah, Chairman, SRTEPC, Shri S. Balaraju, Executive Director, Shri Kripabar Baruah, Additional Director and some Members of SRTEPC also attended the meeting.

During the meeting, among other discussions, it was also informed that processing is the weakest link in the textile industry and due to environment and pollution related issues in the processing segment, the textile industry in India is not fully geared up to compete internationally. In this regard, the CPCB requested the industry stakeholders to furnish the following information:

  1. Quantity of waste being generated
  2. Characteristics of waste
  3. Available option/pilot study carried out for utilization of waste
  4. Issues in utilization
  5. Success stories.

In order to help this Council to submit a consolidated reply to the CPCB on the above-mentioned Five points, Members of the Council are requested to furnish inputs by email at baruah@srtepc.in, ed@srtepc.in on or before 15th July (Friday).  

 

Thank you.
