Polluters pay principles for environment-friendly tanneries at Savar

The tanneries of Hazaribagh have been shifted to the newly build up environment friendly tannery estate at Savar, Dhaka. It is seen that their production activities have also been introduced there in the new industrial estate. The Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) started functioning to reduce the pollution load of this cluster. The management of the whole activities of CETP based tannery estate would be handed over to the forth coming Tannery Estate Management Authority to be formed by the tanners’ body.
