CETP Banthar Unnao May 2011 -- Banthar Industrial Pollution Control Company is struggling to make leather tanning industry a green industry. Its efforts of setting up and managing a WWTP of 4.5 MLD for about 42 leather processing industries, which does not involver any chemicals in waste water treatment has been a pride for India. This WWTP makes total treatment of effluent through natural microorganisms found in cow dung. The mass of heterotrophic bacteria strongly degrades all the organic substrates and to great extent some recalcitrant’s too and in turn giving treated effluent well within the norms.
The Company's CEO wants to attract the attention of US President for his paper to be read and considered carefully to get the action implemented all over the world through UNEP and other international agreements world over which can really be a date of revolutionary change in the world in tremendously reducing chemical pollution from the Planet. CEO thinks over all change in the climate would be controlled significantly and ground water contamination be saved by avoiding billions of tonnes of chemical addition due to dramatic approach of regulatory agencies in every country who have just copied prescribed norms and lagging behind for its monitoring since last many decades without any open minded scientific analysis of total pollution. Total Chemical pollution must be estimated in each country based on processing industries and responsibility should be fixed accordingly in climate change and ground water contamination issues not being analysed scientifically in any country.
