A 150 KLD Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) project, at Ajrakhpur, Bhuj (Gujarat), has been assigned to Northern India Textile Research Association (NITRA). The organization has been assigned with the task of implementing this project by Ministry of Textiles through Handicrafts Mega Cluster Mission (HMCM). India’s Union Textiles Minister Smriti Zubin Irani also joined the foundation stone laying ceremony of the project.

NITRA designed a modern treatment scheme integrated with water reclamation for the CETP. The project includes 6 months post-commissioning hand-holding support to be provided by NITRA. The brief outline/benefits of the project are:

1. Capacity Enhancement: Effluent treatment capacity for the block printing cluster in Ajrakhpur will increase from present level of 50 KLD to 200 KLD.  

2. Environment Protection: Will restrict open discharge of effluent – curtail environmental hazards.
