M. Gunasekaran

TIRUPUR: Nineteen dyeing and processing units around Mangalam, 10 km from here, have formed a company - Mangalam Common Effluent Recycling Technology Private Limited (MCERTPL) - and has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with the Tamil Nadu Water Investment Corporation Limited (TWICL) on Friday last. The TWICL is promoted by the Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services and the State Government for developing and investing in water and wastewater projects.

Under this arrangement, a common effluent treatment and recycling plant would be set up with reverse osmosis technology and an evaporator to ensure zero liquid discharge.

The project outlay would be around Rs. 25 crores.

The MCERTPL has handed over a cheque for Rs.7.5 lakhs as its share to the TWICL for preliminary study.

The units in Managalam, Chinnanandipalayam pirivu, Sultanpet and Vettuvapalayam would be covered under this arrangement.

According to M. Ramasamy, Managing Director of MCERTPL, the proposed unit would treat 50 lakhs litres of the combined effluent (dye path and wash water) a day discharged by the 19 units.

Land purchased

Three acres have been purchased at Mangalam and the dyers can reuse the treated water. As per the MoA, TWICL has to arrange resources for project implementation from various sources, prepare project report, bid process management, bid evaluation and negotiation of suitable contractors.

According to Moorthy, director, MCERTPL, the TWICL will arrange 75 per cent of project cost through various sources and Central and State Governments and the MCERTPL would contribute the rest."We are serious to complete the task at the earliest, probably within 18 months," he said.
