MIA, PPCB to install a common effluent treatment plant

02 December 2019

The Mohali Industries Association (MIA) and the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) will install a low-cost common effluent treatment plant in Chanalon, Kurali for the metal surface finishing industry of Mohali and its nearby districts.

MIA has entered an agreement with Panchkula-based Bansal Envirotech for the project. The construction will begin by the end of 2019 and operations will begin by April 2020.

The Punjab Small Industries Export Corporation (PSIEC) has already allotted one acre of land parcel for setting up the plant.

The plant will be developed on a build own operate (BOO) basis and the land has been given on lease for 20 years.

Around 500 industrial units will benefit from the upcoming common effluent treatment plant. At present all the effluent is sent to the Ludhiana treatment plant leading to high costs due to transportation and delay in getting the waste picked up from the premises.

Bansal Envirotech will construct the common effluent treatment plant (CETP) at Saidpura village in Dera Bassi for disposing of hazardous waste of pharmaceutical industries. The plant will be operational by October 2020. The Mohali Green Environment has awarded the project to the Bansal Envirotech.
