What is Co?mmon Effluent Treatment Plants and their advantages?
The concept of wastewater treatment as a group effort has gained traction as a viable option for clusters of small-scale industrial units!
The common effluent treatment plant (CETP) not only aids enterprises in pollution control, but also serves as a step towards a cleaner environment and societal service. Small-scale enterprises, by their very nature, are unable to profit from economies of scale, thus the cost of installing pollution-control equipment falls disproportionately on them.
Role of Government in CETP expansion
Recognizing this practical issue, the Government decided to expand the scheme for promoting combined facilities for effluent treatment and solid waste management for clusters of small scale industrial units, as well as provide technical assistance to them, under the policy statement for pollution abatement. As a result, the “Ministry of Environment and Forests” of the Government of India has directed several State Pollution Control Boards to investigate the feasibility of creating CETPs in various industrial estates across the country.
There are numerous benefits to taking a coordinated approach to joint or common wastewater treatment procedures. Individual industry wastewater often contains considerable concentrations of contaminants, making individual treatment to decrease them to the acceptable concentration techno-economically problematic.
Various advantages of CETPs include-
1: Facilitating 'economy of scale' in wastewater treatment, thereby lowering the cost of pollution abatement for individual SMEs;
2: Addressing the 'lack of space' issue – CETPs can be planned in advance to ensure adequate space is available, including plans for future expansion. The regulatory authorities will find that using a common treatment facility makes it much easier to ensure that the rules are followed;
3: Homogenization of wastewater;
4: Relatively better hydraulic stability;
5: Professional control over treatment can be affordable;
6: Enables small-scale units to absorb externalities caused by pollution control;
7: Eliminates numerous discharges in the area;
8: Gives chance for greater enforcement, i.e., correct treatment and disposal;
9: Facilitates better organization of treated effluent and sludge disposal, etc.
Inclusion of CETPs as an effluent treatment solution is a must now-a-days!
The concept of common effluent treatment plants, based on feasibility, should be included in new industrial estates as an essential component of infrastructure. In fact, the location of industries should always be such that units with similar natures of activity are clustered together, making common treatment easier.
