What is the role of CETP in India?
CETPs help small-scale industrial facilities which can't afford individual treatment plants, save money on effluent/wastewater treatment, improve collective treatment, and thus save money on land. Optimal working conditions for effluent treatment to meet discharge criteria are a major requirement for any CETP.
What purposes do CETPs serve?
Individual effluent treatment plants (ETPs) confront a variety of challenges, including a lack of space, resources, capital costs, and specialized labour for operation and maintenance, which is worsened for small-scale industrial enterprises. These issues are alleviated by treating effluent from a large number of small-scale facilities at a single location, where the wastewater is treated similarly to how it would be treated individually. This aids in land conservation, better treatment at a single place, simple operation and maintenance, and shared costs. CETPs are designed to collect and treat wastewater from a wide range of facilities, which can necessitate CETPs dealing with a wide range of effluent quality and quantity.
What is the difference between ETP and STP?
ETP is a method that eliminates harmful and non-toxic materials from wastewater, allowing it to be used for a variety of purposes. A sewage treatment plant (STP) eliminates pollutants from municipal or home sewage. ETP is used in industrial settings, whereas STP is used to purify domestic water.
Current status of CETPs in India
According to the most recent reports, due to their small size and scale of operations, “Small Scale Industries (SSI)”, find it challenging to develop and run individual effluent treatment plants. Due to the fact that SSI are commonly found in industrial areas/estates, the concept of a Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) for the effluents from the industrial cluster has been established to ensure appropriate treatment through collaborative efforts. When opposed to monitoring a large number of ETPs of separate SSI units, regulatory authorities find it easier to monitor and enforce a CETP as a single pollutant source.
During 2011-12, the Central Pollution Control Board conducted a research to determine the country's actual need for common effluent treatment plants and to identify the industrial clusters that these CETPs will serve.
1: According to one report, the country has 193 Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs), which service 212 industrial areas/estates;
2: 60 percent of CETPs have a range of up to 5 MLD;
3: 29 percent of CETPs have a range of up to 10 MLD;
4: 11 percent of CETPs with a value greater than 20 MLD.
Are CETPs a requirement for a country like India?
Cleaner production technologies and the creation of waste reduction circles are being pushed in India in order to reduce environmental pollution caused by small and medium-scale companies. Furthermore, to overcome the limits associated with effluent treatment in small to medium firms, collective treatment at a centralized facility, known as the CETP, is regarded a viable treatment alternative.
