WABAG to ensure a cleaner Ganga at Kanpur by treating the most challenging tannery effluent

VA TECH WABAG LIMITED has secured INR 520 Crore worth order from Jajmau Tannery Effluent Treatment Association (JTETA) towards engineering, procurement, construction, operation & maintenance of a 20 MLD Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) along with treated sewage dilution facility for Jajmau leather cluster, Uttar Pradesh.

The scope of this Design and Build contract includes design, engineering, supply, erection, construction and commissioning of 20 MLD Common Effluent Treatment Plant over a period of 24 months. The CETP scheme includes pre-treatment, sulphide removal, de-nitrification, two stage extended aeration and tertiary treatment consisting of clarification, quartz filtration and ultra-filtration. The scope also includes setting up a collection and conveyance system, to collect and pump the effluent from various tanneries up to the treatment plant; setting up common chrome recovery unit, to treat chrome tanning effluents by recovering the chrome so that they can be reused in the tanneries and setting up a pilot plant with a zero liquid discharge facility. Post successful commissioning, WABAG will also Operate & Maintain the above plants for a period of 5 years. The construction of this plant will be funded under the prestigious Namami Gange Scheme and the operation & maintenance will be self-financed by JTETA.

Commenting on this order, Mr. Pankaj Sachdeva, CEO – India Cluster said, “We are delighted to be awarded the first Industrial ETP project under the NMCG. The plant when completed, will significantly reduce the toxic discharge into one of the most polluted stretches of river Ganga. We are also proud that this plant will be the largest Tannery ETP in India and one of the largest globally.”

The order reinforces WABAG’s position in the industrial segment and vision to create a healthier and cleaner environment. The CETP at Kanpur follows WABAG’s successful implementation at Calcutta Leather complex of two CETPs of 10 MLD each along with similar CCRS – Chrome Recovery Plant, tannery clusters in Perundurai and Dindigul, Tamil Nadu for a 2 MLD and a 2.5 MLD CETP respectively. The project will be a decisive step in implementation of the Supreme Court ruling of February, 2017 mandating industrial effluent treatment plants in all functional industrial premises across India.
