Effluent plant commissioned

Staff Reporter

CHENNAI: A new plant to ensure zero discharge and treatment of effluents from the recently commissioned three million tonne refinery of Chennai Petroleum Corporation Limited (CPCL) at Manali was commissioned on Tuesday.

S.C. Tripathi, Secretary, Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, commissioned the plant, established at a cost of Rs.10.44 crore. The plant had been designed to handle 200 kilo litres of effluents an hour. The new plant would facilitate the use of treated effluents for the refinery's process applications, said a press release.

The CPCL was already converting city sewage into good quality water, employing the ultra filtration and reverse osmosis membrane technology. Conversion of the treated effluent to quality water, with the membrane process, was superior to the chemical treatment.
